Emerald Ash Borer: Controlling the Spread

Date: April 21, 2017
Location: Morris Arboretum, Philadelphia, PA, UNITED STATES
Organizer: Jan McFarlan
Description: Instructors: Joel Spies
President, Rainbow Treecare Scientific Advancements
Shannon Herbst
Mid-Atlantic Territory Manager, Rainbow Treecare Scientific Advancements
The spread of emerald ash borer (EAB) into Eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey is a major
challenge and opportunity for Philadelphia area arborists to preserve worthwhile ash trees in the
landscapes we manage. One of the most efficient and environmentally safe methods of pesticide
application is microinjection technology that allows you to apply systemic products to targeted
trees in a responsible manner. Microinjection is also an effective way to deliver a host of other
fungicides and plant health care products. A key factor in achieving safe and effective applications
is a thorough understanding of the injection techniques and products that are available. This oneday
workshop will provide you with a background in microinjection and an overview of all of the
available products and equipment on the market. You will have a hands-on opportunity to practice
an application on an ash tree. This course carries 5.75 CEUs for ISA certified arborists (S=2,
P=1.75, M=2).
