Emerald Ash Borer is Here
Emerald ash borer (EAB) was found in Vermont this winter. Although we have been preparing for its arrival for years, the news is still disappointing.  Now, we need to shift from preparation to action. This TREEmail is dedicated to the resources and events to help you as community leaders, resources managers, and local urban and community forestry ambassadors to support Vermont's response to EAB.
Stay informed at VTinvasives.org/eab<https://vtcommunityforestry.us9.list-manage.com/track/click?u=d8d71c6573f4c4445630b1ab8&id=48ed165f07&e=83207c033e>.
