What is an EAB Management Plan?
A written document outlining a local government’s objective and the approaches it will use to meet the current or anticipated impact of the Emerald Ash Borer on its urban forest resource.
A blueprint that administrators and residents can follow with a high degree of confidence, rationality, and order.

Community Emerald Ash Borer Management Plans
By developing an Emerald Ash Borer Management Plan, communities can take the first step to mitigate the economic burden and environmental impact of this insect.
The ODNR Division of Forestry wants to recognize communities of all sizes for their proactive approach to this crisis, and thank them for sharing their work with other Ohio municipalities and townships.
