BARK BEETLE MANAGEMENT IN PINES


Thursday, November 15, 2012 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Presenter: Dr. Bill Schaupp, Entomologist, USDA Forest Service, Forest Health Protection, Southwest Oregon.
Diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of bark beetle-infested ponderosa and sugar pine trees is a perennial issue in southwest Oregon, especially in years with dry conditions. Do my trees have beetles? Can I save them? Will they spread? How can I prevent beetles from attacking my other trees? Should I cut them down, burn or chip them? Can I use them for firewood? What about thinning and beetles?  Bill, a veteran forest entomologist and lots of experience with bark beetles in pines, will answer these and other questions during his presentation. Time permitting, he'll entertain other "bugs and trees" questions. 
Pre-registration requested.
