Urban Tree Conference: Exotic, Emerging, and Endemic Oak Diseases in the Midwest

Trees are a valuable asset to nature, but their value is often overlooked in urban settings. The six-day, 18 session virtual Urban Tree Conference for industry professionals and avid gardeners will cover all aspects of urban tree planning, implementation and management. 

This presentation by Plant Diagnostic Outreach Specialist Diane Plewa covers common and rare oak diseases of importance to the Midwest region, including those that rarely cause lasting damage to diseases that can kill mature trees in just a few seasons. A brief history, introduction to the pathogen, symptomology, and management will be discussed for each disease.

Registration opens November 13, 2020.
