Webinar: EAB – Strategies for Conserving Ash in the Urban Forest
November 28, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
This TREE Fund webinar, Emerald Ash Borer – Strategies for Conserving Ash in the Urban Forest, will feature Dr. Dan Herms, Vice President of Research and Development with the Davey Tree Expert Co. and a former entomology professor with The Ohio State University. The webinar will be archived within one week of broadcast at treefund.org/webinars but you must attend the live broadcast to earn 1 CEU. Space is limited – register here.
If you are a municipal forester, city manager, arborist, consulting arborist, researcher, extension specialist, landscape manager, property owner, or land manager, you don’t want to miss this program! Learn about the research that provides the scientific basis for emerald ash borer (EAB) management and conservation of ash in urban environments. Dr. Herms will walk you through the results of multiyear insecticide trials with soil applied, trunk injected, and bark applied systemic insecticides, which show that protection of even very large caliper ash trees is a viable option to consider as part of an integrated management program for EAB. See how the EAB Cost Calculator and tree inventories can be used to integrate treatments with removal schedules to develop proactive, strategic management programs for ash and the EAB “death curve” in the urban forest.
