What’s new in the Eos March 2018 Issue? Forestry.
An hour north of the US border, Montreal is known for its treescape. But in 2011, the emerald ash borer put the city’s 200,000 ash trees at risk. Legacy technology (e.g., paper maps, handwritten field notes) caused delays, location errors, and overpayment of pesticide contractors.
Today, the city can treat more than 30,000 trees per year, allowing it to execute a long-term reforestation process that’s expected to be completed over several decades.
