B. SLOW ASH MORTALITY (SLAM) WEBINAR.
When it comes to EAB and ash trees, everyone agrees that something needs to be done besides standing back and watching the trees die. It is this reasoning that has created a research program referred to as SLAM - Slow Ash Mortality. Applying the SLAM approach will not eradicate EAB, nor will it eliminate ash tree mortality. Rather, the goal of the program is to slow the local invasion process and allow land managers time to be proactive rather than simply reacting to the overwhelming numbers of dead, and often hazardous trees.
To learn more about SLAM, including steps to implement the strategy to SLow Ash Mortality, tune into the Emerald Ash Borer University (EABU) on Thursday, June 2, 2011. The webinar will begin at 11:00 a.m. EST, and last approximately 1 hour.
