Coalition of organizations addressing the effect of EAB

In southwest Ohio, a broad coalition of organizations has joined forces to address the devastating effect of emerald ash borer on the region’s urban forest. Using a 2014 EAB Grant from the TREE Fund, Media Working Group produced and distributed a Community Action Toolkit for the coalition. The toolkit—comprised of fact sheets, booklets and videos to increase awareness about the benefits of the tree canopy and the threats it is facing—has informed thousands in print and online at www.takingroot.info. In addition, these materials were incorporated into a national public television documentary called Trees in Trouble that will premier on Arbor Day 2016 on PBS and run for three years.
