Thursday, October 25, 2018. 1:00PM. Webinar: Leaf Spots, Scorches, & Wilts Affecting Southeastern US Deciduous Trees. Jean Williams-Woodward, University of Georgia. Sponsored by Southern Regional Extension Forestry. More information here.

Abstract:

Foliage and vascular wilt diseases affecting deciduous trees in urban landscapes, including anthracnose, fungal leaf spots, bacterial leaf scorch, Verticillium wilt, and more will be covered with a focus on identification and management.  Leaf spot diseases can ruin the look of deciduous trees in urban landscapes; however, they rarely are life-threatening for deciduous trees. On the other hand, vascular wilts and leaf scorch diseases will kill trees over time. Their symptoms can be confusing, so proper identification is needed to know which disease is affecting the trees. Often disease management options for urban trees are limited. In this webinar, Extension Agents will learn about disease management options for each disease.
