SLAM, or SLow Ash Mortality, is a project that aims to track Emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire) populations and begin to outline a potential management strategy for slowing its spread. These populations are expanding both naturally and through artificial transport of infested ash material. Additional populations of emerald ash borer (EAB) will undoubtedly continue to be discovered. When a localized outlier site is found, there are currently few options to manage EAB or mitigate damage.
