EAB Public Information Meeting

State and Federal officials will host a public meeting in Montpelier about emerald ash borer (EAB), an invasive insect recently discovered in Vermont. Those attending the meeting will have the opportunity to learn about EAB, implications of the statewide quarantine, infested wood disposal options, “slow-the-spread” recommendations, and guidance for landowners, forest professionals, and municipalities.

Representatives from the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation (FPR) and the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets (VAAFM), in cooperation with the US Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), and the USDA Forest Service (USFS) will host the meeting and will be available to answer questions.
