Shorewood EAB Readiness Plan
Like its water, sewer, or road systems, Shorewood's urban forest is an asset that must be carefully managed to maximize both its lifespan and its economic and ecological benefit to the community. Unlike other capital infrastructure, the value of the urban forest appreciates over time.
In 2009, the Village of Shorewood Forestry Division developed an Emerald Ash Borer Readiness Plan to outline the impacts of an EAB infestation in the village and to identify the essential personnel, procedures, and resources - both human and fiscal - to combat the beetle. An update of the original plan is currently in progress.
The goal of the plan is to minimize the economic, aesthetic, and ecological impacts of the Emerald Ash Borer on the Village of Shorewood. Please access a copy of Shorewood's EAB Readiness Plan (PDF).
