Wednesday, November 13 –

Event Time: noon-1:30pm

Invasive forest pests like emerald ash borer (EAB), hemlock woolly adelgid are already having devastating impacts on Maine’s forests; browntail moth is affecting human health as well as tree health; Asian longhorned beetles, with a large host range could be the next invaders on the horizon! On Wednesday, Nov 13 from noon-1:30pm, Hildy Ellis of Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) will present a program about these invaders at Bremen Library, 204 Waldooro Rd, Bermen ME. Using slides and an outdoor tree ID walk, this workshop will help landowners and userslearn to • identify current and potential invasive forest pests and their host species, • understand the threats to our forests and woodlands posed by these pests, • limit their spread, and • learn how to report suspected pest sightings or damage to trees that may be a result of pest infestations All participants will receive an information packet with fact sheets about the major pest species, a list of host trees that the species may be found on, how to make decisions about treatment, current quarantine information for EAB in Maine, and other relevant information.
