VARYSBURG, N.Y. — Join us for a woods walk to discuss some of the frequently asked questions landowners have about EAB and ash trees in their woodlot: How soon will the ash trees die? Are EAB infested ash trees valuable or still viable for timber? Is there enough volume to make a marketable timber sale? What is an ash salvage harvest and what impacts could it have? What are the different safety considerations to be aware of? Are there any restrictions or permits needed to harvest infested EAB? What is going to regenerate in the understory after removing the ash trees?
