Talk on Emerald Ash Borer

Join Steve Roberge, Cheshire County Extension Forester University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension, for a discussion on identifying and learning the signs and symptoms on May 30, 7 to 8:30 p.m., at Gay-Kimball Library.

Emerald Ash Borer, found March 2013 in Concord, is called the most destructive, invasive insect in North America. It attacks ash trees, and is responsible for the death of millions of ash trees in the Midwest. It kills untreated trees in three to five years. It is a federally regulated pest and the State of New Hampshire placed quarantine on Merrimack County for ash nursery stock, all hardwood firewood, and certain ash forest products.

This talk about how to slow the spread through learning the signs and symptoms is free to the public. It is sponsored by the Troy Conservation Commission and Cheshire County UNH Cooperative Extension.
