Pest Scene Investigator Tour Series

We have four great forest health tours planned for this upcoming year. Even if you don’t live in the area, walking in the forest with Dave Shaw and Paul Oester is guaranteed to be informative.

These tours will feature locally important forest pests, including bark beetles, root diseases, dwarf mistletoe, needle diseases, stem rots and others. The goal is to help participants improve their diagnosis skills and learn how to identify and manage forest pests they might encounter on their property, and will give you an opportunity to learn about specific insects and disease affecting different areas around the state. Carpooling is encouraged!
