Management of Emerging Tree Pests In Southern California by Beatriz Nobua-Behrmann, Ph.D, University of California Cooperative Extension
In this seminar you will learn how to identify signs and symptoms of invasive bark and ambrosia beetle infestations. We will also discuss the principles of integrated pest management and how to implement an IPM program to combat these beetles. We will review the available management options for each pest and when is it appropriate to use each of them and we will cover new methodologies and tips to successfully manage these pests.
Recognize Tree Problems by Kevin Sims, Sims Tree Health Specialists
In this class Kevin will go over some common tree issues and how to spot them. These issues will range from biotic (living things like insects and fungus) to abiotic (things like nutrient deficiencies and mechanical damage). After going over some basic problems, Kevin will look at how to mitigate them. This will include treatment options and also look at things you can do before an issue starts.

Public policy is starting to limit the use of these chemicals, as 42 countries have banned or condemned a well-known and broadly-used herbicide. In reality, herbicides and pesticides were created for convenience and efficiency, so any alternative will need to also hold up to the same scrutiny, if it has any chance of being a successful substitution. Join Brandon as he discuss the realistic ways that chemical-free landscape maintenance can be implemented.

Drought, Heat, and Pest Resistant Landscape Trees for Southern California by Janet Hartin, Area Environmental Horticulturist with University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources
Janet will discuss uses and attributes of fifteen drought, heat, and insect and disease resistant tree species that are currently under-planted in Southern California. She will discuss what insects and diseases they are specifically resistant to and tree species that should no longer be planted due to their invasive characteristics negatively impacting the health of surrounding plants.
In this presentation Wister will discuss the basic biology for borers and mites, options for management including trunk injection and labels of some solutions for trees and soil. Recent wet weather has triggered many different pest and disease issues throughout California that may already be impacting your customers and landscapes.
