The Emerald Ash Borer is now found in 11 NY counties. Ten percent of New York State’s hardwood forests are ash trees. Onondaga County has initiated a task force to prepare communities across the county for the arrival of Emerald Ash Borer in order to better plan and manage the impacts from this devastating beetle, including threats to infrastructure and private property, increased storm damage, and loss of ecologic and economic resiliency.
This workshop will provide educational resources for both homeowners and rural land owners about the oncoming Emerald Ash Borer infestation. We will explore some of the major questions such as: How do I identify an ash? Should I preemptively harvest my ash? Will any of my ash survive? What are the strategies for treatment and management? We will also address other forest pests, such as the Asian Longhorned Beetle. What will the threat mean to sugar maple, horsechestnut, elm, willow, birch and ash trees? What options are available?
