How does emerald ash borer impact you? Do you have an opinion on the quarantine rules or emergency orders? Does your business move ash wood or firewood? We want to hear from you- join us in April for an information gathering session as we prepare to change the quarantine rules. We meet again in May to give a municipal update and we hope to see you there.
The Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry is holding three listening sessions in April to gather input on emerald ash borer regulations in Maine. The sessions will be hybrid, allowing for in-person and online participation. Meetings will be held in Augusta on April 12, Houlton on April 13, and Old Town on April 20. Interested parties should subscribe to receive EAB-related news.
The Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry is also hosting a virtual update meeting on emerald ash borer for cities and towns on Monday, May 1, at 10:00 AM. Topics will include remote sensing of ash, Portland’s response to EAB, and updates about pesticides and quarantines.
