Emerald Ash Borer Preparedness Workshop

Event:    Emerald Ash Borer Preparedness Workshop
Start:     Saturday, March 3 @ 1:00 PM
End:     Saturday, March 3 @ 3:30 PM
Organizer:     Catskill Regional Invasive Species Partnership (www.catskillinvasives.com)

Address:     46 Main Street
Livingston Manor, NY12758

Landowners and interested parties are invited to join the Catskill Regional Invasive Species Partnership (CRISP) for a free workshop on preparation for the arrival of the emerald ash borer. The emerald ash borer is an invasive beetle that has the potential to infest and kill every ash tree in the state of New York.  Emerald ash borer populations have been identified locally in Orange, Ulster, Greene and Albany counties, and have the potential to spread very quickly.

Workshop attendees will learn how to identify signs and symptoms of the emerald ash borer and discover options for treatment and management of their ash resources as well as statewide efforts to deal with this invasive forest pest. Immediately following the indoor program, CRISP will lead an optional field trip to survey nearby ash trees for signs of emerald ash borer.

Come learn your options and begin preparing for the arrival of the emerald ash borer.
