“The EAB [Emerald Ash Borer] has been around for a long time,” says Janette Monear, CEO of Texas Trees Foundation. Foresters within the Texas A&M Forest Service would agree.

Effective reduction of this invasive wood-boring species, now present in Dallas County, will require “expansive collaboration, cooperation, and support,” to preserve a significant portion of Dallas’ tree canopy, says Monear. She also expressed gratitude that Dallas’ City Council “fully supports all efforts to address this issue.”

The Texas Tree Foundation (TTF) & Texas A&M Forest Service teamed up on Thursday, June 30, in a venue generously donated by Dallas College Richland Campus, for an informative, hands-on, community-wide training session entitled “Identifying & Managing Emerald Ash Borer (EAB).”
