NC Community Tree Webinar: Introduction to Decay in Trees

Nov 09, 2022

11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Getting to the Root of Decay- What causes it, how does it work in the plant, and what can you do about it?

Presenter:  Dr. Barb Fair of NC State University, Associate Professor and Extension Specialist for Landscaping, Arboriculture and Urban Greening

Decomposition is a normal process in the life cycle of trees.  Urban foresters, however, can take steps to prolong the life of trees and delay when tree decompositon occurs.  During this webinar Dr. Fair will identify which organisms facilitate tree decay and in what manner.  Additionally, she will explain how you can protect trees from infection and treat trees that display wood rot.  If you worry about the health of your community's trees, this is a webinar you don't want to miss!
