Published Date

This project was completed as part of the 2013-2014 Resilient Communities Project ( partnership with the City of North St. Paul. Cities around the Twin Cities metro area are beginning to address the issue of Emerald Ash Borer, or EAB. The City of North St. Paul was looking to develop a plan to respond to EAB invasion. Project lead Jon Fure partnered with students in FR 4501/5501: Research Problems: Urban Forestry—Biology and Management, taught by Dr. Gary Johnson, to begin developing this plan. Based on their research, the students offered three practical management options for the City: remove ash trees killed by EAB and replant with a different breed of tree; remove all ash trees over a 10-year period and replant with different breeds; and remove small trees and replant with different breeds, while chemically treating larger ash trees. The final report and presentation are available.


Report and presentation completed by students enrolled in FR 4501/5501: Research Problems: Urban Forestry - Biology and Management, taught by Dr. Gary Johnson in spring 2014.
