Learn about Emerald Ash Borer 6:30 pm
Feb 15th - 6:30 pm

Learn about Emerald Ash Borer

Guest Speakers:

Diana Alfuth, Pierce County UW-Extension

Michael Mroz, City of New Richmond

Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), an insect that has killed hundreds of millions of ash trees across the country, is looming closer to St. Croix County. The destructive pests have slowly spread throughout southern and central Wisconsin and have been confirmed in neighboring Washington County and just this past fall in Eau Claire. With this in mind, the City of New Richmond is taking a proactive role in preparing for EAB.

In an effort to help educate the community, the City of New Richmond and Friday Memorial Library are partnering with UW-Extension to offer a free educational program addressing the threat posed by Emerald Ash Borer at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 15 at Friday Memorial Library, 155 East First Street.

The primary presenter for the evening will be Diana Alfuth, Horticulture Educator for UW-Extension in Pierce County. Over the past 18 years, Diana has become the go-to person for all things horticulture in Western Wisconsin. She advises the St. Croix Master Gardener Association and also serves as an adjunct professor at UW-River Falls. Her presentation will address how to identify EAB, what the symptoms of an infestation are, treatment options, and types of trees to plant as alternatives to ash trees.

Following Alfuth’s presentation, City of New Richmond Public Works Operations Manager and City Forester Michael Mroz will give an overview of what steps the City is taking to address EAB on public property and throughout the community.

Pre-registration is kindly requested to ensure adequate materials and space. To reserve a spot, or if you have any questions about the program, contact City of New Richmond Management Analyst Noah Wiedenfeld at (715) 246-4268, or send an email to nwiedenfeld@newrichmondwi.gov.
