Michigan’s trees are under assault from a variety of sources. Some of the origins of these tree maladies are from lethal, invasive pests and diseases. Other causes of tree maladies are less destructive….unless we misdiagnose them and engage in inappropriate remediation efforts. Still other maladies are the direct result of human activities. Based upon past and new developments over the past several years, we can predict what issues will become prominent during 2017 and what steps we need to implement to thwart the declining health of our trees. Oak Wilt, Trellis Rust, Herbicide Toxicity, the Two-Lined Chestnut Borer, Tar Spot (yes, Tar Spot), and the Hemlock Wooly Adelgid will be a few of the topics discussed during this program.
