      Ash Trees: A Story of Relationships, Loss, and Hope

      The emerald ash borer, an invasive wood-boring insect, has killed millions of ash (Fraxinus spp.) trees in North America since the insect arrived in the United States in 2002. This exhibit, created by Cornell graduate student Bailee Hopkins-Hensley, showcases how this invasive pest has upset the intricate relationships ash trees have with the world around them, how the loss of these trees has impacted Haudenosaunee communities, Indigenous people to this area, and the efforts to prevent further loss of ash trees. Learn about the pest, its destructive path, the ecology of ash, and how it is used for basket making.
