Two Emerald Ash Borer and Ash Tree Research Sites Declared Successes for 2015
Both of the Ash tree and Emerald Ash Borer research sites located closest to the Hudson River have been declared successes for 2015.
These sites are within the “severe risk area” of the Mid-Hudson EAB Quarantine Boundary issued by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
The map above shows small red dots where the EAB insect has been verified. The grey hashed area is the “severe risk area” which is within 5 miles of the core infested area.
The Red Hook research site and the Omega Institute research site have not shown any evidence of Emerald Ash Borer presence from 2012 through 2015. The sites have received Cooperative BioBalance®, CoExistence Technologies®, and EcoPeace Treaty® bio-energy treatments for those 4 years. Thus, we are declaring success on those sites for 2015.
