Title: Outlook for ash in your forest: results of emerald ash borer research and implications for management

Author: Knight, Kathleen S.;

Date: 2014

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Since its accidental introduction near Detroit, Michigan, in the mid-1990s, emerald ash borer (EAB) has rapidly spread through much of the U.S. and adjacent Canada, leaving millions of dead ash trees in Midwestern states (4,11). Unfortunately, EAB attacks trees as small as an inch in stem diameter and it attacks all five ash species native to the region - white, green, black, pumpkin, and blue. Nearly 100% of the trees attacked by the beetle eventually die (5, but see 10). Yearly monitoring of ash forest sites across Ohio began in 2005 to understand the effects of EAB on ash populations and forests. Several interesting results have emerged.
