Emerald Ash Borer Treatment at Tompkins Preserve

Have you ever wondered what is killing all the ash trees? We invite you to join us and William Davidson from the NH Forest Health Bureau for a walk on the Tompkins Preserve and Dot Banks Trail, home of the former state champion Black Ash tree. Several ash trees on the Dot Banks trail in Sandwich were treated for the Emerald Ash Borer in 2021 and it is time for them to be treated again.
