Description: Forest management through emerald ash borer (EAB) will be a dynamic process that will change based on the best information available at the time. Management decisions will depend on the anticipated time of EAB arrival; the diameter and number of ash present in the forest stand; the diameter and number of other desirable and undesirable species present in the stand (especially exotic invasives); the current and anticipated future ash markets; and, most importantly, the long-term economic and biological impact that the loss of ash will have on the residual stand in terms of future stocking level and natural regeneration.
Keywords: green ash, black ash, white ash, blue ash, emerald ash borer, Fraxinus
