The emerald ash borer (EAB), first detected in 2002 in North America, is rapidly spreading throughout the United States and Canada, targeting all native ash species. The loss of ash will have important economic, social, and ecological impacts, especially in areas where ash is the dominant canopy species, such as wetlands and riparian areas. This workshop is offered to help prepare for and mitigate the anticipated challenges.


Join managers, land owners, and researchers for presentations, field tours, and posters aimed at the expected changes from the loss of ash and management options for resilient ecosystems. Topics will include silvicultural approaches, options for species transition, hydrologic changes, plant community response, biogeochemistry, and more!

This workshop is being organizing and sponsoring by Michigan Technological University, USDA Forest Service Northern Research Station, and University of Minnesota.
