CLEMSON, S.C. — Insects and diseases such as southern pine beetle and gypsy moth have been threats for some years, but a new invasive insect known as emerald ash borer may soon cause the mortality of all ash trees.
Understanding how these insects and diseases can impact the health of your woodland and what steps you can take to be proactive and minimize present and future impacts is critical. Fortunately, there are natural resource professionals that can help. This workshop will provide you knowledge about threats to forest health, strategies to minimize the impacts, and resources available to help you implement needed practices.
