Emerald Ash Borer in New York: The Insect, The Impact, and Your Options

(Update 2009-06-25 17:41 - The recorded webinar is available at http://breeze.cce.cornell.edu/p16366720/ )

The emerald ash borer (EAB) was detected in western New York on June 14, 2009. Although the insect was anticipated, its presence will result in significant changes in both rural and urban woodlands throughout the state.  In other states, infestation by EAB resulted in significant losses among all ash species and unexpected stress on rural and urban owners, communities and businesses.

An Internet webinar will be offered on Thursday June 25 at 10:00 AM (eastern).  Participation in the webinar requires a high-speed Internet connection and speakers to listen.  The webinar will address the insect, its potential impact in New York, options for management, and identify sources of information.  The webinar will be interactive and presented by Mark Whitmore of the Cornell University Department of Natural Resources.  The webinar is free, but participants must register through www.ForestConnect.info to receive the URL to connect.

More information about webinars is available at the ForestConnect website.  The webinar will be recorded and available for subsequent viewing.
