Emerald ash borer turns forest into wetlands


By Great Lakes Echo

The invasive emerald ash borer has the potential to destroy over 3 million acres of black ash wetlands across the region, according to a recent study published in the journal Ecological Applications

Although black ash mortality may lead to initial increases in species richness, the conversion from forest to wetland will cause significant shifts in what species can survive.

In our newest TikTok, Echo reporter Brooklyn Peppo takes a closer look at the study and talks about potential management strategies for the region.
