Free program for woodland, home owners


BRYAN -- Ohio State University Exten-sion experts will offer landowners and homeowners an update on two of the most dangerous and talked-about invasive insect pests lurking in Ohio's forests: emerald ash borer (EAB) and Asian longhorned beetle (ALB).

The free program will be held Oct. 27, starting at 6:30 p.m., at the Williams County office of OSU Extension, 1122 W. High St., Bryan.

Program topics include updates and reviews of EAB and ALB, options for dealing with EAB in woodlots and landscapes, and information on how long trees need to be treated for EAB and what products are labeled.

Presenters include Amy Stone, OSU Extension educator and outreach coordinator for EAB and ALB, and Kathy Smith, forestry program director, OSU Extension.

Reservations are requested so that we can have enough materials for each participant and can be made by contacting either the OSU Extension Williams County office at 419-636-5608 or the Williams Soil and Water Conservation District office at 419-636-9395. The program is sponsored jointly by the Williams County OSU Extension and the Williams Soil and Water Conservation District.
