Many efforts have taken place in Michigan to find more value in ash and
other dead urban trees following the outbreak of the emerald ash borer.  The
Southeast Michigan RC&D Council is now hosting "EAB & Beyond: Finding Value
in Urban Trees," a conference to showcase wood recycling opportunities for
communities and industries.  

This event will give participants the chance to learn more about wood
utilization options for municipalities and businesses by providing in-depth
discussion on successful uses, developing markets, technology, regulatory
issues, and planning.  Presentations will feature both national experts in
urban wood reclamation and local success stories.

Community leaders, urban foresters, wood industries, resource professionals,
conservation organizations, & other interested groups.
