The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is an invasive pest that kills all species of ash trees. It has already been found in three New Jersey counties, Pennsylvania and New York. Come learn about this threat and what you can do about it on Wednesday, March 16, 2016 at 7:30pm at Kirby Hall in Harding Township. Light refreshments will be served.

The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is a green jewel beetle native to eastern Asia that feeds on and kills Ash trees. Outside its native range, it is an invasive species and is highly destructive to ash trees native to North America.

The Harding Township Environmental Commission and the New Vernon Garden Club are pleased to host this event featuring Jon Rafalowski of Tree-Tech. He will provide useful tips on identifying EAB and advise homeowners on treatments that are considered viable options for maintaining the health of ash trees.
