Monitoring and Managing Ash (MaMA) is an innovative ash conservation and emerald ash borer (EAB) mitigation program created and directed by the Ecological Research Institute (ERI), in close consultation with the US Forest Service. It provides specific actions for each stage of EAB invasion, including pre-invasion. These include participating in MaMA’s land-manager and citizen-science projects enabling detection of “lingering ash”, naturally occurring trees that stay healthy even when the nearby trees around them have died from EAB. Our partners at the US Forest Service use lingering ash to yield EAB-resistant lines of native ash, with these trees offering the best hope for ash conservation and restoration.
