WHAT DO I DO WITH MY ASH TREES? A FREE PUBLIC TALK

WHAT DO I DO WITH MY ASH TREES?   

A FREE PUBLIC TALK

 With the arrival of the emerald ash borer (EAB), over 95% of our ash trees are projected to be killed.  There is no known natural control and no way of stopping the spread of this insect. The threat of this pest has implications for all citizens.

 For landowners with forestland, lawn trees, and road frontage, and for town officials dealing with the safety of public rights-of-way, this talk sponsored by the Weathersfield Conservation Commission will be held at Martin Hall (Weathersfield Town Hall, 5254 US Route 5) in Ascutney, VT, Thursday evening, January 23, at 7:00 pm. The presentation will be given by Jim Esden, Protection Forester for the State of Vermont. Identification of the presence of this pest and strategies for dealing with it will be discussed.
