Long-term Impacts and Management of Emerald Ash Borer

February 3 @ 10:00 am 11:00 am

The emerald ash borer, an invasive insect, has spread from its initial introduction in Michigan and killed millions of ash trees across the region. All six ash species native to its introduced range are susceptible to this pest, and the effects of EAB differ in the different kinds of ecosystems inhabited by these different ash species. Our long-term monitoring program has provided insights into the impacts of EAB on forests and on the long-term dynamics of ash species. Looking to the future, integrated pest management strategies can be used in situation-specific combinations to reduce and mitigate effects of EAB.
