Washington State University Extension Forestry is offering Forest Stewardship Webinars. They offer periodic live webinars on various forest stewardship topics. The webinars are free, but pre-registration is required. Each webinar is offered twice: one from 12:05-12:55 pm, and again from 7:05-7:55 pm.
Due to increased security, you must have your own Zoom account to participate. You can easily create a free Zoom account if you do not already have one. Important: you must have your Zoom account set up and be registered for the webinar at least two hours before the webinar start time.
If you are interested in a webinar but will be unable to attend, please register anyway so that you can receive a link to the recording.
Another one bites the dust – Why so many trees have been dying in western WA
Dead and dying trees have proliferated throughout the region, especially with cedars and hemlocks, causing concern for many property owners. This webinar will talk about why so many trees are dying right now and how to recognize when there’s a problem on your property. Topics include insects, diseases, and drought, and what property owners should do (and not do) to increase tree resilience and mitigate impacts.
Instructor: Kevin Zobrist, Extension Forestry Professor, Washington State University.
