This presentation will review research that provides scientific basis for EAB management and conservation of ash in urban environments. Results of multiyear insecticide trials with soil applied, trunk injected, and bark applied systemic insecticides show that protection of even very large caliper ash trees is a viable option to consider as part of an integrated management program for EAB. The EAB Cost Calculator and tree inventories can be used to integrate treatments with removal schedules to develop proactive, strategic management programs for ash and the EAB “death curve” in the urban forest.
