EAB and Resilient Roads

All Vermont communities are encouraged to determine their ash management strategy in response to emerald ash borer (EAB). EAB feeds on and kills all species of ash trees, and most ash trees will die within 5 years of infestation. So what does that look like on the ground? Join members of the Resilient Roads Committee and Joanne Garton, Technical Assistance Coordinator with VT Urban & Community Forestry Program to discuss East Montpelier's proactive management approach.
