What is Being Done to Save the North American Ash Trees

1584720740177.jpg

On This Green Earth, Mary Mason, a Forest Geneticist with the US Forest Service, comes on the show.

Mason discusses the issues that are facing the North American ash trees. The ash borer invasion that slipped into the US around the turn of the millennium, most likely on a container ship, is now in 35 states and responsible for the deaths of hundreds of millions of trees.

Mason shares what is being done to save our ash trees.
