The Emerald Ash Borer Information Network will hold an Emerald Ash Borer: Perspective from a Recently Infested State webinar on April 16th at 11 a.m.
The emerald ash borer invasion has advanced across the Northeast over the last decade, with the first detections occurring in western New York in 2009 and the most recent detections in Maine in 2018.
Presently, infestation across the region may be characterized as mix of generally infested areas, newly infested locations, and expanding satellite infestations, with many areas yet to be invaded.
Nate Seigert from the USDA Forest Service will discuss the spatial and temporal dynamics of the emerald ash borer invasion along the leading edge from New York to Maine, including a review of selected management activities, updates on recent changes, and future direction of management and regulatory work in light of reduced funding and potential federal deregulation.
