UMass Extension’s Landscape, Nursery, and Urban Forestry Program and the Extension Fruit Program will hold a series of free Tuesday webinars focusing on the impact, monitoring, and management of invasive insects in Massachusetts and elsewhere. Topics will include invasive forest pests, spotted lanternfly, the biological control of winter moth, Asian longhorned beetle updates, planned detection surveys in Massachusetts and New England, and more! There will also be an update about non-native earthworms, close relatives of the insects, which have attracted a lot of attention in recent years.
On Tuesday, January 19th, Nicole Keleher from the DCR Forest Health Program will hold a Forest Health Update webinar from 11:10 am to 12:10 pm.
Nicole will discuss what impacts to expect from our forest pests and diseases in 2021. She will talk about our common insects, new invaders to be on the lookout for, and the effect the drought will have on our trees.
