EAB Workshop Presentations

Kingston & Orillia, March 18th and 20th, 2014

These workshops were developed to provide technical support to practitioners working in non-regulated areas that were regulated on April 1, 2014.

They provided a variety of up-to-date, practical information for those in urban and rural settings who will be planning and implementing EAB and Ash management activities. Participants included municipal staff (upper and lower tier), lead-hand arborists, large property managers (e.g., Conservation Authorities, parks and ski areas), Professional Foresters and Forest Technicians

    Notes:

  • Presentations listed below are mostly provided in pdf format.
  • The Ash Identification session link is to information from other sources that can help identify ash and ash species.
  • The second Branch Sampling session link is to a video from the workshop provided by James Rogers.
  • It is anticipated that audio recordings or information from the recordings will be added in the future.
