Mar. 13 What you need to know about Emerald Ash Borer. - Martha Barwinsky - City Forester
Since the 2002 discovery of emerald ash borer (EAB) in North America, millions of hectares of ash trees have been decimated in the United States, Ontario, and Quebec. As EAB continues to move closer to Manitoba, it poses a significant threat to Winnipeg's urban forest and will result in a significant change to our urban forest cover. Winnipeg is home to over 350,000 ash trees and over 30% of the city's public urban canopy is comprised of ash. Learn what you need to know about EAB, how the City of Winnipeg is preparing for EAB, and what can be done to slow the mortality of the city's ash population.
