Presented by Rebecca Koetter, Research Fellow, Urban Forestry, University of Minnesota
Presentation 3 of 5 from the EAB Community Preparedness Workshops
Emerald ash borer is a devastating wood boring tree pest that has already killed millions of ash trees in the United States. It was found in Minnesota St. Paul and Minneapolis in 2009 and in Houston County in 2010. Is your community prepared for the arrival of this devastating pest? In June 2010, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, University of Minnesota and the City of St. Paul presented workshops throughout Minnesota to provide information to communities preparing for the arrival of EAB.
Presentation 3, Ash Management Plan, covers details that need to be considered when preparing for the potential loss or treatment of a community’s ash population, including tips for replacement trees, wood utilization and more.
In the upper left hand corner of the presentation, there is an icon that refers to more information that can be found in the 2010 EAB Community Preparedness Manual (mda.state.mn.us/plants/pestmanagement/eab/eabmanual.aspx) the presenter may also refer to the manual and the Template Community Preparedness and Response Plan for EAB (mda.state.mn.us/grants/grants/fprappropriation/~/media/Files/plants/eabmanual/eabmanual-section2a-template.ashx) where the user can find more information.
