Invasive Tree Pests Workshops 2019

2019 Invasive Tree Pests Workshops


There are considerable concerns for Southern California landscapes due to the Goldspotted Oak Borer (GSOB), Invasive Shot Hole Borers/Fusarium Dieback Disease (ISHB/FD), and South American Palm Weevil (SAPW). These invasive pests have attacked and killed hundreds of thousands of trees in Southern California, encouraging San Diegans to prepare for their possible arrival. Due to the ever-growing dispersion of these invasive pests, this workshop was designed to update land managers, tree-care professionals, and pesticide applicators on the latest invasive pest findings in San Diego.
 ***Due to the structure of this event, we will not be able to accommodate walk-up's. Pre-registration is required. 
Both workshop dates/locations are full. We are no longer accepting registrations/walk-up's for these dates.
