The International Plant Sentinel Network is involved in a new project to monitor for the Emerald Ash Borer in eastern European countries.

Working with partners in Fera, Defra and Forest Research we are running a project which involves monitoring and surveying Ash trees in botanic gardens for Emerald Ash Borer (a pest of Ash trees).

Emerald Ash Borer has been found in Russia so activities will be focused in countries that are close to the Russian border.

We are currently identifying botanic gardens and arboreta that have Fraxinus species in their collections to be involved in the project.

If your institution has Fraxinus species in the collection and you are interested in being involved, get in touch with us via email.
