If you own or manage ash trees, you should most definitely be interested in attending this course. The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is an invasive insect that targets ash trees, and now surrounds Mississippi. You will learn about detection & risk; alternative species and regeneration options; strategies before and after EAB; and the market outlook for ash timber.
