6:50am - 7:00am Welcome and Introduction

7:00am - 8:00am Monitoring and Identification: key components of successful PHC and IPM programs | Kirti Mathura

Knowing whether a harmful insect or disease is present within a tree’s system requires frequent monitoring of the tree and it’s surroundings, and proper identification of the situation. This will lead to appropriate control methods to keep trees (and shrubs) healthy.

8:00am - 9:00am Climate change and landscape pests | Shakunthala Nair

Insects and arthropods, being cold-blooded animals, are profoundly affected by weather parameters; of which temperature, CO2 and humidity might be the three most important. Integrated pest management is the best strategy to manage pest populations in trees under these circumstances. Close monitoring of pest incidence and keeping records will prove invaluable to evaluate the economics and environmental impact of pest control methods for urban forests.


9:00am - 9:15am Break

9:15am - 10:15am 2022 Trees Talk with their Leaves | Rebecca Senior

As practitioners of plant health care our “patients” cannot tell us where it hurts. But we can learn to listen to a way they do communicate, primarily through their leaves. We will look at trees leaves to help with one of the most important first questions when evaluating a tree in decline, is the cause abiotic or biotic. Misdiagnosis of the cause of tree decline can lead to misuse of chemicals or other mitigation procedures. The incorrect treatment can often increase harm to the Tree “patient”, applicator, and environment.
