Dr. Dan Herms, vice president of research and development, The Davey Tree Expert Company will present a webinar on the topic of “Emerald Ash Borer: Strategies for Conserving Ash in the Urban Forest” on Wednesday, Nov. 28.
If you are a municipal forester, city manager, arborist, consulting arborist, researcher, extension specialist, landscape manager, property owner, or land manager, you don’t want to miss this program!
Learn about the research that provides the scientific basis for emerald ash borer (EAB) management and conservation of ash in urban environments. Dr. Herms will walk you through the results of multiyear insecticide trials with soil applied, trunk injected, and bark applied systemic insecticides, which show that protection of even very large caliper ash trees is a viable option to consider as part of an integrated management program for EAB. See how the EAB Cost Calculator and tree inventories can be used to integrate treatments with removal schedules to develop proactive, strategic management programs for ash and the EAB “death curve” in the urban forest.
Tom Wolf, Vice President at The Davey Tree Expert Company and TREE Fund Vice Chairman will provide a short introduction to TREE Fund and Dr. Herms.
