“OSU Lincoln County Extension Service is planning a workshop on April 10, 2012: Forest Health Workshop – what’s eating my trees?
Worried about insects and diseases in your trees? Not sure how to identify them? Don’t know what trees harboring Swiss Needle Cast look like? Then, this class is right for you. Learn how to diagnose some of the more common insects and diseases found in our woodlands. This is a great opportunity for you to learn about conks, root rots, bugs and other critters that might be either eating your trees or using them for a home or nursery.
Instructor for this workshop is Dave Shaw, OSU Extension Forest Health Specialist. There will be a 1-hour classroom session, informal luncheon discussion, and then head to the field for several hours in the afternoon – rain or shine.
Cost for the workshop is $25. Registration Deadline: April 5, 2012. You can register for this workshop by going to the following website: http://extension.oregonstate.edu/lincoln/forestry/news. Fill out the form and mail it to the Forest Health Workshop, OSU/Lincoln County Extension Service, 29 SE 2nd Street, Newport, OR 97365 or stop by the Extension Service office.
