Event Details

Diagnosing and Detecting Woody Plant Disorders

Date: February 23, 2017
Location: Morris Arboretum, Philadelphia, PA, UNITED STATES
Organizer: Jan McFarlan
Description: Dr. Neil Hendrickson
Northeast Technical Support, Bartlett Tree
Research Laboratories
In this class, we will cover key diagnostic tools and
techniques, as well as treatments for both plants
and soil to help promote plant health and create
sustainable landscapes. We will also discuss some
of the most common cultural mistakes we see in
the landscape and how they can be corrected.
Accurate diagnosis of plant disorders is key when
managing woody plants in the built landscape.
Possible plant health problems include insect or
mite infestations, diseases including those spread
by insect vectors, environmental problems like soil compaction, or a combination of all of these
factors. Being able to observe and think in a systematic fashion that will help to pinpoint the
problem is an important part of the process. In this presentation, Neil will present some of the
diagnostic tools and techniques that he has learned in his over 35 years of experience as an arborist.
He will help us understand how we can continue to preserve the health and beauty of our landscape
trees and preserve biodiversity in the landscapes in our care. This course carries 5.75 CEUs for
ISA certified arborists (S=2, P=1.75, M=2).
