Part 1- Foliage and Branch Tip Diseases
Part 2- Diseases of Woody Tissues, the Vascular System, and Roots
Diseases of trees in the urban forest carry a wide range of health implications for each specimen. Many diseases have a spectacular visual impact, but are inconsequential to overall tree health, while others sneak up on the arborist and cause great harm to the tree. This three-hour program covers most of the common shade tree diseases found in the mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions. The program will be presented in two sessions that focus on the plant part affected--working from the foliage down to the root system and everything in between. Find out what diseases to celebrate and which ones to be concerned about and what you can do about it. Field identification, diagnostics, and control options will be covered within the context of a proper Plant Health Management program.
This course carries 1.5 CEUs for each session for ISA certified arborists (S=0.5, P=1, M=0).
