Program topics include updates and reviews of EAB and ALB, options for dealing with EAB in woodlots and landscapes, and information on how long trees need to be treated for EAB and what products are currently labeled.
Presenters include Amy Stone, OSU Extension educator and outreach coordinator for EAB and ALB, and Kathy Smith, forestry program director with OSU Extension.
