Hello, and welcome to my site!
I am a graduate student at the State University of New York, Environmental Science & Forestry. My research is on the distribution and dispersal of the invasive wood boring insect the emerald ash borer (EAB).
A large component of my work involves collecting EAB infested ash material to determine how long trees in the Syracuse area have been infested.
To do this...
I need lots of trees!
If you are a property owner or land manager in Syracuse and have ash trees you think or know are infested with EAB, you can help me out.
I would like to look at your infested ash trees and if you plan to cut down any infested trees or already have infested cut bolts, I would be very happy collect samples.
You can send me a message by filling out the contact form below.
Here are some useful resources on the emerald ash borer:
