With the Emerald Ash Borer infestation in Minnesota now spreading to Minneapolis, this spring is a good time to learn more about the borer, how it spreads, and what can be done to slow it. With millions of ash trees in Minnesota, the borer presents a significant threat to both our forests and the urban landscape.
The Minnesota State Horticultural Society is partnering with the state Tree Care Advisors to present educational sessions on the borer all around Minnesota. Here’s a PDF file with a list of the class locations, dates and times. The same information can be found in the March/April 2010 issue of Northern Gardener.
