Monitoring & Managing Ash Trees with CRISP

LIBERTY - An invasive species is a species that is non-native and whose introduction causes or has the potential to cause harm to the environment, economy, or human health. Invasive species spread quickly and aggressively because they are hardy, they reproduce rapidly, and they lack natural predators or biological controls. Invasive species can compete with natives for resources, prey on natives, alter the environment to make it undesirable for natives, interfere with human infrastructure and activities, carry and transmit diseases, and make the landscape more prone to natural disasters such as floods and wildfires.

Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County (CCESC) has partnered with Catskill Regional Invasive Species Program (CRISP) to offer Monitoring and Managing Ash (MaMA) Trees workshop Monday, July 16, from 1 to 4 p.m. This free program will be held at the Extension Education Center on 64 Ferndale-Loomis Road in Liberty.
Jonathan Rosenthal and Dr. Radka Wildova of the Ecological Research Institute will present how to establish ash mortality monitoring, how to report and track emerald ash borer, and when to treat or cut down trees. The program will include two hours in-class instruction and a one hour field survey demonstration. Tools and resources will be shared with participants.
Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County offers free invasive species identification services throughout the year.
This workshop is free. Registration is required by calling CCESC at (845) 292-
