Our Urban Forest
Wednesday, September 207-9 p.m.
Dimond Library, 3565 Fruitvale Ave., Oakland

Urban and park trees provide many benefits to wildlife and humans alike. At the same time, our trees are subject to a variety of factors that negatively impact the tree health and reduce their lifespan. Dr. Igor Lacan of University of California Cooperative Extension will discuss the most common insects, pathogens, and abiotic problems that affect trees in Oakland, and will note the “upcoming attractions” of the pest world (problems currently occurring elsewhere that may be coming our way). We will also briefly cover the appropriate management actions, including horticultural techniques, integrated pest management, and planning for the future, and we will get an overview of the research-based resources from the University of California and other academic and professional sources. This presentation takes place at the bimonthly FOSC meeting. All are welcome!
