The Emerald Ash Borer is here in Maine, and in LEA’s service area in Bridgton. Cumberland County, York County, part of Oxford County and Aroostook County have had quarantines and restrictions on moving ash since 2018 and are still working to understand spread and how to manage this invasive insect. Join Jan Santerre, Program Director for Project Canopy (Urban and Community Forestry) and Colleen Teerling, Forest Entomologist, to learn more about EAB in western Maine on March 29, from 5-6 pm. They’ll share current regulations and quarantines; plus options for Ash waste and best management practices for handling Ash trees; monitoring methods; management options; and resources for landowners and stewards.
This program is co-sponsored by Greater Lovell Land Trust, Loon Echo Land Trust, Lakes Environmental Association, Western Foothills Land Trust, and Upper Saco Valley Land Trust. We hope you can join us to learn more about how to slow the spread of EAB!
