Many native and exotic insect and pathogen pests already affect Michigan trees and forests. Other serious pests are not yet here but are certainly on the horizon. If you work with trees in urban or forested settings, this workshop is for you. Up to date information on current and emerging forest pest issues will be presented by scientists and forest health specialists from Michigan, Ohio and Minnesota.
