The Springfield EAC wants to share this educational opportunity with you! It is hosted by Pennstate Extension, held virtually on April 20, from 9am to 11am. Live online via Zoom. $15 fee.
Tree-of-Heaven Control and Spotted Lanternfly Trap Tree Approaches:
“Managing the invasive tree-of-heaven (Ailanthus altissima, also called Ailanthus) has emerged as a core strategic component of approaches to Spotted Lanternfly (SLF) mitigation and management. Those strategies involve both controlling tree-of-heaven as well as retaining and systemically treating tree-of-heaven to use as “trap trees” for SLF. Tree-of-Heaven Control and Spotted Lanternfly Trap Tree Approaches will provide best practice recommendations for both activities. Practitioners engaged with SLF management approaches involving control or treatment of tree-of-heaven should know what works well, how best to implement those practices, and what simply doesn’t work in order to plan and expend management efforts most efficiently.
