Date: Tuesday April 28, 2015 12 PM (MT)
Speakers: Dr. Richard Hauer, (Professor of Urban Forestry, University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point), with an introduction by Randall Miller, Director of Vegetation Management (PacifiCorp)
What should you do when emerald ash borer comes knocking? The past decade has brought many science-based approaches to manage ash populations—letting ash die, removing them preemptively, treating them, or using some combination of these tactics. This presentation will focus on the economic considerations of these EAB management options. Dr. Hauer’s research was partially funded by a John Z. Duling grant from the TREE Fund. Randall Miller, TREE Fund Chairman of the Board, will introduce Dr. Hauer and the TREE Fund.
