Event Details

There are considerable concerns for Southern Californian landscapes due to the Goldspotted Oak Borer (GSOB) and Invasive Shot Hole Borers/Fusarium Dieback Disease (ISHB/FD). These non-native wood borers have attacked and killed hundreds of thousands of trees in Southern California costing landowners and government agencies millions of dollars. This training series will provide helpful information to those concerned about the stewardship of these landscapes. Our goal is to inform as many people possible of the threats posed by these invasive pests, identifying their damage, how to diagnose a dying tree, and what to do to avoid the spread of these pests. This series is designed for land managers, tree-care professionals, and other stake-holder, but is open to anyone interested.
This training series will consist of 3 components, 2-hours each: 2 online webinars and 1 field training (2 location/date options). We are offering two separate field trainings: one in San Diego County and one in Orange County. For dates, locations, and times please see below. 
Part 1: Webinar 1 will be held at 10am March 27, 2018
Part 2: Webinar 2 will be held at 10am April 3, 2018
