Emerald Ash Borer Webinar Offered by Penn State Extension

The Pennsylvania Forests Web Seminar Center is proud to have Dr. Tim Pierson, Extension Educator/Forester, Penn State Extension and Ned Karger, Forester, The Collins Company, Kane Hardwood Division, presenting Emerald Ash Borer: Description, Lessons Learned and Management Strategies for Forest Landowners and Managers on Tuesday, February 14th at noon and again at 7 p.m. Each web seminar lasts approximately one hour.

This webinar will provide a description of the emerald ash borer (EAB), problems associated with the infestation in Pennsylvania and lessons learned from researchers, scientists, forest landowners and forest resource professionals in Michigan and Ohio. The webinar will conclude by providing forest management strategies for forest landowners and managers to decrease the negative impact of emerald ash borer on forest stands.

Each session is recorded and loaded onto the Web Seminar Center "Previous Webinars" page along with a copy of the presentation and any handout materials. So, if you are unable to participate in the "live" session, a recording of it will be available for you to view at your convenience. Of course, none of the interactive elements will be available when watching the recording.

To participate in the live seminars you must register to receive reminders. The "Register Now" page on the website will walk you through this process. To log into the site you will need to use your Penn State UserID and password (or Friend of Penn State account), or we have a new feature that allows participants to log in as a ?Guest? with no need for a UserID or password.

Participation in the web seminar does not require any special software. To view live and previously recorded seminars all you need is a high-speed Internet connection and sound.
