#56: Help Stop Insect Disease and Invasion

In the western mountain ranges, vast acreages of forests are turning brown as bark beetles spread across the once-green landscape. In the East, the American chestnut was almost annihilated by a fungus from a foreign land. Although dealing with these kinds of epidemics is mostly the purview of professional foresters, urban trees that are attacked by insects and diseases are everyone’s responsibility. We all play a role in stopping the spread of invasive insects and diseases, and this bulletin discusses how to do our part.

#15: Tree Risk Assessment — Recognizing & Preventing Hazard Trees

Worrying about hazards has resulted in the unnecessary removal of many trees. Although the problem of hazard trees needs to be addressed by every landowner and land manager, removal should be an act of last resort.

In this bulletin, some of the signs that warn about dangerous trees are presented, as well as a reminder that those of us who own or manage trees are, indeed, responsible for the safety of people and property in the vicinity of our trees.
