The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation announced yesterday that the Emerald Ash Borer has been confirmed in Tioga County. We’ve posted their News Release as a pdf on the CCE-Tompkins website, where you also will find photos of the EAB at various stages in its life cycle, information on signs and symptoms of infestation, on firewood quarantine regulations, and useful links to resources such as the NY Invasive Species Clearing House at Cornell University, emeraldashborer.info, and to publications that can help you identify ash trees on your property.
