Members of the Illinois Emerald Ash Borer Team will lead this professional program aimed at presenting up-to-date information on the presence of the Emerald Ash Borer in Illinois and addressing the effects of EAB on the green industry

The devastating Emerald Ash Borerhas been sighted in the Chicagoland area. What's the next step? A panel of experts will share the most up-to-date information on this threat to Illinois' urban forests. The discussion will look at the current spread of EAB, the biology of the insect, management strategies, state and federal regulations and how to inform residents and clients. A question and answer period will follow the discussion.
