This course will be a resource for anyone interested in tree identification, wood diseases, and particularly anyone conducting a risk assessment of trees with the decay. Arborists, foresters, landscape architects, master gardeners and green industry professionals conducting tree risk assessments need to know and understand:

Wood decay fungi affecting trees show considerable variability in form and their ability to cause decay. Part of that variability is driven by the species of tree and fungus, the age and vigor of the tree, the extent of the fungal attack and associated decay, and the ability of the tree to compartmentalize the invading pathogens. Understanding the CODIT process is integral to understanding where decay may be within the tree. Minimizing bark scaring from park or forest management activities reduces the creation of fungal infection courts that threaten long-term tree health.

Improve your tree identification and disease field assessment skills in this 2-hour class. This is a walking hands-on lecture that will cover visual assessment techniques for tree identification, disease, using a combination of signs and symptoms of common diseases in native Midwest trees.
