Emerald ash borer (EAB) is a destructive and invasive forest pest that feeds on and kills all species of ash trees. EAB is now confirmed in Washington, Caledonia, Orange, Bennington, and Grand Isle counties and communities are encouraged to prepare for the impacts of the pest. This training, led by staff from the VT Urban & Community Forestry Program , is intended to teach participants about EAB, introduce management options, and to help towns assess risk and establish a plan. Participants will engage in an activity to strategize an approach to EAB management and will leave the training with action steps to take back to their community.
This training, scheduled   for November 28 th , is intended for municipal staff; Selectboard members; Conservation Commission, Planning Commission, and Tree Committee members; Tree Wardens; Forest Pest First Detectors; and anyone else who may be engaged in planning for EAB at the local level in Central Vermont communities .
This training is free but registration is required. Space is limited.  To register: centralvteabtraining.eventbrite.com
