GRANITE FALLS, Minn. — The threat of the emerald ash borer and how the city of Marshall is addressing it will be featured in the upcoming episode of Prairie Yard & Garden on Pioneer PBS on Thursday, April 29 at 7:30 p.m.“EAB and Marshall’s Plan” will be rebroadcast on Saturday, May 1 at 4 p.m. and Monday, May 3 at 1 p.m. It will be available for online viewing at www.pioneer.org/pyg immediately after broadcast.
The emerald ash borer (EAB) is a non-native beetle with larvae that burrow under the bark of ash trees and kill them. After learning about how the EAB is spreading from Joe Zeleznik, extension forester with North Dakota State University, PY&G Host Mary Holm travels to Marshall to learn about their plan to gradually remove and replace hundreds of ash trees at risk from the emerald ash borer over the next 10 years.
PY&G is produced by Pioneer PBS. Production sponsorship is provided by ACIRA, Heartland Motors, Shalom Hill Farm and the Friends of PY&G.
