A number of residents interested in learning more about the City's Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) program attended a presentation lead by UW-Extension Horticulture Educator Diana Alfuth Thursday evening, Feb. 15, at Friday Memorial Library.

Alfuth spoke about the history of EAB, the EAB life cycle, signs and symptoms, and treatment options. City Public Works Operations Manager and Forester Mike Mroz concluded the evening's program by addressing steps the City of New Richmond has taken so far to prepare for EAB, and next steps for 2018.
