Join us as we continue our forest health leture series with Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station Forest Entomologist, Dr. Carole Cheah, for a conversation focusing on the threat that Hemlock Wooly Adelgid has on our beautiful hemlock trees and our forests as a whole. Dr. Cheah will dive into past treatment measures,  research on biocontrols from other parts of the country, and her work with Sasajiscymnus tsugae (Japanese lady beetle) as a biocontrol. She will discuss the efficacy of these beetle releases, why they work, and investigate efforts taken from all ranges of management levels. Don’t miss this opportunity to understand how we, as landowners and professionals, can alleviate these stressors to our forests.

Forestry professionals will be awarded 1.0 CEU for this event.

Join us as we kick off our forest health lecture series with a conversation with Dr. Jeffrey Ward, Chief Scientist in the Department of Forestry and Horticulture at The Connecticut Agricultural Experimental Station. Dr. Ward will discuss the threats of herbivory and invasive vegetation on the health of our forest ecosystems. Topics will range from stressors to forest regeneration, links between invasives and the risk of tick-borne diseases, and management implications of a range of control options. Come learn about the threats to our beloved forests and what can be done to mitigate these stressors.
