Monitoring Ash Trees for Emerald Ash Borer
July 22, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
The Monitoring and Managing Ash (MaMA) citizen science project aims to engage the public in ash monitoring before, during, and after an emerald ash borer (EAB) infestation. MaMA monitoring plots help landowners and researchers track EAB and provide information about lingering ash to researchers.
VLT uses this protocol with landowners across Vermont, and it is broadly used in other states by state, federal, and nonprofit entities.
VLT Ecologist Allaire Diamond and Jack Minich, VLT’s Land Management Coordinator serving in VHCB AmeriCorps, along with Pieter van Loon, VLT Lead Forester, will provide required training for the protocol and share VLT’s approach to ash monitoring and management. You’ll gain a new way to engage with your clients, connect them in a new way to their land, and promote an approach to maintaining a resilient ash population in Vermont. SAF-approved credits will be available.
This free, online training is designed for professional foresters. Space is limited; please pre-register for access.
