Integrated Pest Management (IPM) for Community Trees Webinar
May 14, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Trees provide many benefits – they reduce greenhouse gases, act as natural air conditioners, and serve as homes for wildlife. Keeping trees healthy and free from pests using integrated pest management (IPM) is a delicate science of both understanding tree species and the pests that are harming them. Join EPA on May 14, 2019, for a webinar that will provide information on common symptoms of unhealthy trees and IPM-based options for treating the issues and managing the various pests. Pamela Zipse of Rutgers University and Dr. Marcia Anderson of EPA’s Center for IPM will discuss strategies specifically geared to protecting trees against pests including gypsy moth, codling moth, eastern tent caterpillar, and spruce spider mites.
