Designing the Post-Invasive Species Forest

The Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve is working with the City of Superior to study the impacts on local forests of an invasive beetle, the Emerald Ash Borer. This beetle has killed hundreds of millions of ash trees in North America and has cost municipalities, property owners, nursery operators, and forest product industries hundreds of millions of dollars.

The partners have designed a demonstration project that will help determine the best tree species poised for success in the non-ash forest of the future. (2016)
