2014 Ash/EAB Research Sites and Results

First visits to the Ash and Emerald Ash Borer EcoPeace Treaty research sites in 2014 were in February, 2014.  After a harsh winter, the Ash trees were leafing out rather late.  Since trees make food for themselves in their leaves, leafing-out late puts a stress on the trees.  They must use up their stored resources until the leaves are unfurled and in food production.

The structure of an EcoPeace Treaty is an up-side-down triangle. The organisms at the top, which are usually at odds with each other, come into dynamic balance when the agreement is mediated by Dr. Jim Conroy.  Please see the photo in the slide show above.

At the end of the season, the Ash trees were healthy and strong.  There was no sign of Ash Borer at any of the Hudson Valley or New Jersey sites.

For more detail, please go to Mediated Treaties and the EcoPeaceTreaties.org blog.
