July 5-9th, 2015 Advanced insect and disease field session
This field session offers the most advanced and in-depth insect and disease training available in the Pacific Northwest. The attendees will spend one-on-one field time with top-level entomologists and pathologists from the Pacific Northwest region and gain real-life experience in developing management regimes and silvicultural measures. Each day will consist of site visits to infected stands for a first-hand look and discussion of particular insect and disease problems. Attendees will learn identification, biology, response to stand conditions and management options. Small group sessions will be used to develop management strategies and mock stand prescriptions. The region’s leading entomologists and pathologists will be on hand to provide assistance and advice as the prescriptions are developed.
