Emerald Ash Borer Grant Funds When EAB is Confirmed in ND

Emerald Ash Borer Mitigation

In preparation for the arrival of emerald ash borer (EAB) in North Dakota, the North Dakota Forest Service requested state funding to assist communities with removal and replacement of trees.  This request was approved by the ND Legislature and is included in the NDFS 2011-2013 budget.  Funding will become available in the form of grants to eligible applicants once EAB is confirmed in North Dakota.  Confirmation of EAB must be made according to the protocol established by the ND Department of Agriculture and USDA. 

To Apply:  Applications for funding will be made available to impacted communities by contacting a member of the ND Community Forestry Team.  Upon approval of the ND Community Forestry Council and the State Forester, funding can be used for tree removals as well as replacement of trees, and will require a 1:1 match from the community.
