This session will focus on fungal decay diseases, prevalent in the damp fall season, that affect many of our native tree species in the Pacific Northwest. Recognizing these pathogens is essential when assessing tree health and structure. We will examine samples in the classroom and scout for examples in the field. Plant Health Care (PHC) approaches to management, including acceptable Integrated Pest Management (IPM) methods will be covered. We will also do diagnosis practice in the lab. If some of your plant problem samples have you stymied, let’s figure out what’s wrong with your plant! Students are encouraged to bring pest and disease samples to class for discussion and diagnosis.
