Urban Tree Pest Update - Insects that Harm Trees

  • June 16, 2021
  • 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Zoom (free)

As new pests such as Spotted Lanternfly and Emerald Ash Borer or common pests such as caterpillars, aphids, scales, and borers attack our urban trees, it is critical to properly identify the pest and then develop management strategies. Join us for Community Forestry Webinars: Urban Tree Pest Update - Insects that Harm Trees and learn which insects are primed to cause damage to our community trees and how to effectively manage those insect pests. Commercial Horticulture Educator with the Green Industry Team, Tim Abbey, will present this session on how to effectively manage these invasive insects.


About the Series

The trees that line our streets and roads, shade our yards, beautify our parks and playgrounds, and protect our streams are all part of the community forest that provides a wealth of benefits to each of us. Over the years, the number of trees (or tree cover) in our communities have been declining for various reasons including attack from invasive pests, injury from construction activities or deicing salts, improper tree care practices, unwarranted removals by some and lack of funding for replacement of declining trees. Each month the Community Forestry Webinars will explore topics related to the planting, care, and management of our community trees.
