NSRC researchers will test if the release of parasitoid wasps that attack and kill EAB eggs or larvae, in already established release study areas in New York State, is an effective means to slow mortality of large ash trees, sustain health of ash saplings and seedlings, and promote regeneration of ash stands over time.
To document how quickly EAB can be expected to increase in density in the presence (and absence) of released parasitoid wasps, the timing of the response of mature ash trees to changes in EAB density, and the potential of regenerating ash trees coupled with the establishment of parasitoids to sustain ash species as a component of the Northern Forest.
