October 10, 7 – 8pm: How to Identify the Emerald Ash Borer – Dr. Gail Langellotto, OSU
The Emerald Ash Borer was discovered in Forest Grove Oregon, marking the first confirmation of this insect on the West Coast. This pest has proven destructive to ash trees including the Oregon native ash tree.
In this presentation, Gail Langellotto will teach us the importance of early detection in stopping the spread and establishment of this new and emerging species. Specifically, you will learn how to recognize ash trees, identify the emerald ash borer, and what to do if you suspect that you have found an affected tree, or the invasive pest.
