Preparing for Emerald Ash Borer Mobile App

The purpose of the Preparing for Emerald Ash Borer mobile app is to assist communities with planning for the eventual arrival of the emerald ash borer and managing its impact on their community trees. This is not an actual plan but rather a guide to identify the major issues confronting communities. The topics listed in this checklist will serve as the building blocks of a community preparedness plan. You can tell that an application has been saved on your device (if it's not completed) because on the app listing screen seen there will be an asterisk in front of the app name.
