Institute for Cooperative BioBalance® EcoSystem Research Study on Ash Trees and Emerald Ash Borer in New Jersey
The largest research site in New Jersey is the Genesis Farm EcoLiteracy Center. The “Farm” has allowed Dr. Jim Conroy to do his research on the property since 2005.
In late 2012, Dr. Conroy found many Ash trees on the 250 acre property. He approached the director, Miriam McGillis, and got permission to include it in his Northeast USA Ash Tree and Emerald Ash Borer Research Study. Please go to that summary at sister website CooperativeBioBalance.org for a more detailed explanation of the study.
Dr. Conroy’s first actions were to find Ash trees on the property. So far, he has about a dozen treatment zones.
The Emerald Ash Borer is know to be just to west in Pennsylvania. It has not yet been officially found in New Jersey, but it is expected to be found in New Jersey in 2016.
