Ash Management Guidelines for Private Forest Owners

Ash is a predominate resource in Itasca County, growing along our lakes and rivers, and thousands of forested acres consist predominately of ash. Emerald ash borer, and invasive pest from China threatens the forest. A new UMN Extension publication, Ash Management Guidelines for Private Forest Owners, provides a thorough overview of the ash resource in Minnesota including: ash's history on the landscape; ash tree identification; information on the emerald ash borer (EAB); how to identify native plant communities on your property; wildlife impacted by ash; quarantines and other related implications of EAB on forests.

In August 2012, the Ash Management Guidelines for Private Forest Landowners received the 2012 Notable Documents award from the "National Conference of State Legislatures".

A copy of the publication may be found online here or in the Itasca County Extension Office.
