ROCHESTER - City residents are urging residents to attend an upcoming presentation on the invasive emerald ash borer.

Emerald ash borer was first detected in New Hampshire in 2013, and has since had its presence confirmed in 40 towns in five counties throughout the state. The insect is widely considered to be the most destructive forest pest in North America, and is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of millions of ash trees in the eastern U.S.

The City of Rochester invites residents to a presentation on the insect, which will highlight methods for identifying infested trees, as well as best management practices. The event will be held on April 24, at 6 p.m. at City Hall.

The workshop is being conducted in partnership with the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension, the New Hampshire division of Forests and Lands and the New Hampshire Department Agriculture, Markets and Food.

There is no cost to attend, and registration is not required. For more information about the event, contact Andy Fast at 603-841-6544 or andrew.fast@unh.edu.
