Snapshot: New manual gives land managers a variety of options for beetle-killed trees
Summary:

Forest Service researchers and their partners have developed a user-friendly guide that focuses on how best to use wood obtained from trees that were infected by invasive species, especially the emerald ash borer. Assessing Wood Utilization Options for Urban Trees Infected by Invasive Species is a comprehensive manual that can be used by professionals when assessing use options for bug-killed trees.

The publication includes a summary of the technical viability of using these materials for value-added products in a variety of applications, and will be useful to urban foresters, municipalities, and local industries looking for ways to use beetle-killed trees.
