ROSCOMMON–Oak wilt and forest invasive pests have the potential to disrupt natural forest ecosystem processes and affect timber values.
There will be a workshop April 11 from 6 to 8 p.m. in Room 151 at the CRAF Center, 606 Lake Street, Roscommon. It will begin with an overview of oak wilt, including how it spreads and how you can best prevent the pathogen from affecting the oaks on your property.
<span “=””>The second half of the workshop will focus on how to identify three potential devastating forest pests and the symptoms they cause in their host trees.
<span “=””>You will also learn how you can get involved in the early detection and rapid response team to help ensure these pests do not have the opportunity to establish populations in our native forest ecosystems.
<span “=””>This workshop is presented in partnership by Diane Bomer, Forestry Assistance Program forester for the Otsego and Crawford-Roscommon Conservation Districts and Julie Crick, MSU Extension Natural Resources Educator in Roscommon.
<span “=””>There is a $5.00 cost for the workshop. Please register to attend by contacting Diane Bomer at <span “=””>firstname.lastname@example.org<span “=””> or by calling 989-732-4021.
