Ryan Rastok, Forest Health Coordinator for the Kansas Forest Service, will give this week's presentation and provides this overview: "The invasive Emerald Ash Borer (Agrilus planipennis) was introduced into southeastern Michigan from Asia in the early to mid-1990s, subsequently discovered in 2002, and now has been confirmed in 36 states. This presentation will cover the lifecycle, phenology, biology, and ecology of Emerald Ash Borer; its history in the U.S. and Kansas; its ecological and economic impacts; and why this is important now and for the foreseeable future."
