Workshops Aim at Reducing & Recycling Loss from EAB

 

With Nebraska communities facing the loss of street trees to emerald ash borer over the next decade or more, an April symposium is focused on being proactive toward the changes that lie ahead.

 

                Topics span from “What to do once it’s discovered,” to “What to do with all the waste.” The April 6 workshop offers input from cities that began dealing with loss from emerald ash borers 4-8 years ago, as well as information about treatment options and safety hazards. The April 7 workshop discusses opportunities for wood utilization—compost, mulch, biochar, building materials, etc.

 

                The workshops are sponsored by the Nebraska Forest Service, South Dakota Department of Agriculture, ReTree Nebraska, USDA Forest Service, UNL Extension and the City of Omaha. The information is aimed at community leaders, public works employees, landscape managers, city foresters, tree boards, green industry professionals, natural resource district managers and extension specialists.

 

                Registration is $30 per day or $50 for both days. Free registration is being offered to any publicly elected official currently holding office in Nebraska (limit of 2 free registrations per community). Register at nfs.unl.edu
