Emerald Ash Borer and Ash Management

Currently there are some ares of NY (and the NE) where the emerald ash borer (EAB) impact has resulted in significant mortality of ash, yet other areas without evidence of mortality. The unfortunate reality is that EAB will almost certainly infest all acres of NY woodlands that have ash, and the result will be widespread mortality. There are efforts at finding biocontrol agents, and we can remain optimistic that those will prove effective. These scientists are suggesting that while large mature…See More
