Save the Date! Oak Threats Workshop, Jan. 12
January 10, 2013 -
With the threat of emerging insects and diseases affecting oak trees, the Huntington Library is hosting a hands-on workshop on Jan. 12 to provide everyone interested in learning about the care and treatment of common and new threats to their oaks.
It is an opportunity to examine and learn to identify a variety of common, not so common and emerging insects and diseases that might affect oak trees in your yard.
Learn about new threats, including the Gold Spotted and Polyphagous Shot Hole Borers.
Mingle with professional arborists and pest control applicators to learn the best ways to avoid, treat, or repair tree damage.
Become a Citizen Scientist and contribute to the regional monitoring network that will help document and perhaps prevent spread of new insect threats.
The workshop runs from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., rain or shine, and CEU Credits will be available. For more information: http://ucanr.edu/sites/socaloakpests/ to register.
