Have you heard news stories about invasive insects threatening New Hampshire’s trees and forests? Are you concerned about trees on your property or in your community? On Thursday, March 29th, Kelly Merryfield, a master gardener and volunteer from the Speaking for Wildlife Program will present “NHBugs: The Big Three” at 7pm at the Daland Memorial Library. The presentation will focus on three of the insects of greatest concern in New Hampshire: emerald ash borer, hemlock woolly adelgid and Asian longhorned beetle. You’ll learn about where these insects are found, how to recognize an infested tree, how they spread to new locations, and what you can do to help slow the spread. This program is free and open to the public. The Speaking for Wildlife Program is a volunteer effort of UNH Cooperative Extension. Support for the program comes from the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, the NH Charitable Foundation, the Davis Environmental Foundation, the NH Fish and Game Department and the NH Natural Heritage Bureau. Registration recommended.  Call 673-7888 to reserve your spot.
