North Country explorer from Ogdensburg
Homeowners and concerned citizens joined us for a walk on the Remington Trail to learn how they can hep monitor and slow the spread of emerald ash borer (EAB). EAB was confirmed in St. Lawrence County last August and is already on the way to becoming a public safety concern. Infested trees can die in 1-3 years, and are at risk of falling on homes and powerlines. Together, we learned how to I.D. an ash tree and signs of infestation. Using our Community Ash Tree Survey, citizens can contribute to our online visual database and monitor infestation throughout the county.
