Trees in Your Backyard - Invasive Pests

  • Brighton Memorial Library 2300 Elmwood Ave Rochester, NY, 14618 United States (map)

Join certified arborist Jason Beardsley at Brighton Memorial Library to address a number of invasive insects and diseases that are threatening trees in our landscapes and local habitats. He will discuss Spotted Lanternfly, Emerald Ash Borer, Hemlock Woolly Adelgid, Oak Wilt, and Boxwood Blight and the potential for each pest. While being educated, aware, and vigilant about these pests, it is very important to note the many cultural, environmental, and physiological aspects of your trees' care that are being overlooked.

The presentation will also discuss some key factors in caring for your trees, including often undervalued tips and techniques for improving tree health. Please bring your questions, concerns, pictures, and interest for this important discussion!
