Long-term Impacts & Management of Emerald Ash Borer
The results of 14 years of monitoring ash mortality and forest ecosystems in Ohio and Pennsylvania show how EAB has impacted these landscapes. Rare “lingering” ash trees have been identified and studied to understand long-term survival prospects for ash. Integrated pest management strategies, including breeding of ash trees with tolerance to EAB, show promise in management of EAB.
