Emerald Ash Borer Community Assessment Tools


With the recent confirmation of Emerald Ash Borer in a Peoria park, I am again reminded of the importance of having a plan for how to handle ash trees when the borer hits. This website includes a link to a tree cost assessment calculator from Purdue that looks very useful. http://www.emeraldashborer.info/communityplan.cfm#sthash.rOijCG6v.dpbs

Plans are in the works to hold an open house event at the Peoria Park so folks can see the actual tree with symptoms. Various organizations and agencies will also have displays there to give more information. Stay tuned for details!

This Facebook link shows three pictures I took of the Peoria Park tree. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10206569755098569.1073741888.1112141146&type=1&l=359f51f878
