The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), Cornell Cooperative Extension of St. Lawrence County, and State Department of Agriculture and Markets announced today that the agencies are offering a workshop on the invasive pest Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) for forest landowners. All landowners are invited to attend this free workshop. EAB is a small but destructive beetle that infests and kills North American ash tree species. EAB was confirmed recently in St. Lawrence and Franklin counties by DEC.
What: EAB Workshops for Forest Landowners, St. Lawrence & Franklin counties
When: Wednesday, November 1, 2017
Time: 5:45 – 8:00 p.m.

For more information contact Steve Sherwood, DEC Forester, (315) 274-3335 or email information.R6@dec.ny.gov.
Forest landowners can also request a DEC Forester visit their woodlot and develop a free Forest Stewardship Plan. Forest Stewardship plans address the landowner’s objectives and discuss how the arrival or proximity of EAB could impact the owner’s forest resources. Forest owners can schedule a site visit by contacting their local DEC Forestry office. To learn more about EAB [ http://www.dec.ny.gov/animals/7253.html ], as well as efforts to reduce its negative impact and save trees, visit DEC’s website.
