On Tuesday, Nov. 5, the city of Boulder hosted an EAB “tree dissection” for forestry staff from other Front Range cities and Wyoming. Staff from CSU Extension, Colorado Department of Agriculture and U.S. Department of Agriculture, Animal Plant Health Inspection Service, Plant Protection and Quarantine (USDA APHIS PPQ) were on hand to teach other forestry professionals what EAB looks like and to demonstrate branch peeling techniques to find EAB larvae.
Thank you to Central Elementary School in Longmont. These junior entomologists learned all about the Emerald Ash Borer last week and will now take that knowledge to teach other students. CDA Staff: John Kaltenbach
