Emerald Ash Borer in Vermont

Date and Time:

October 26, 2019 - 9:00am to 11:00am


Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historic Park Forest Center

The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is a nonnative invasive forest pest first discovered in the United States in 2002. EAB has been confirmed in Vermont and it is important to prepare for and manage the impacts of EAB and loss of Ash trees. Join Windsor County Forester Hannah Dallas for this 2-hour workshop to learn about the biology and identification of EAB, how to report a suspected infestation, and what EAB means for woodlot management. The workshop will begin with an indoor presentation and then we will head outside to look at the Ash trees in the park. Please come dressed appropriately for outdoor activity!

Join us on October 26th from 9-11 AM at Forest Center, Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller NHP, in Woodstock VT. Parking is available in the Billings Farm & Museum overflow lot, located on Old River Road.
