Emerald Ash Borer Preparedness & Management for VT Communities

Date and Time:

June 26, 2018 - 12:00pm to 1:15pm

Emerald ash borer (EAB) was confirmed in northern Orange Country in February 2018. This webinar will focus on the resources available and steps your town can take to reduce the impact of EAB when it reaches your community. Vermont Urban & Community Forestry Program staff will provide an EAB update and Geoff Beyer, tree warden and Parks & Trees Director for the City of Montpelier, will discuss their planning process and strategies for EAB management.  We will also be joined by Andy Hillman from the Davey Resource Group, who has worked with a number of New York communities of various sizes to manage for EAB and will share his experiences and lessons learned. This webinar is intended for municipal staff, Selectboard members, Conservation Commission and Tree Committee members, and anyone else engaged in planning for EAB at the local level.
