Oswego Tree Stewards, SLELO-PRISM Partner At Invasive Species Meeting

OSWEGO – Do you have any Ash trees on your property, especially along the city streets?

Are you preparing to lose them when the Emerald Ash Borer comes to our city?

The Oswego Tree Stewards will be hosting an Invasive Species Public Information Session on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Conference Room on the third floor of Oswego City Hall.

The talk will especially relate to our local trees in the city of Oswego.

The public is invited.

This is a partnership with SLELO-PRISM (St.Lawrence Eastern Lake Ontario – Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management).

Sarah Conley, education and outreach coordinator for SLELO will talk about EAB and other invasive species that may affect our city trees.

She will answer any question you may have about insects on your trees, plus she will be bringing the Yellow Ash Tree Tags and purple flagging tape for the Tree Stewards.

The stewards will be placing the yellow tags on the city ash trees to create public awareness of the Emerald Ash borer and to promote community preparedness.

This session is free, but registration is required to attend.

Please email Conley at [email protected], or call (315) 387- 3600 x23.
