Have you ever wondered why the leaves on your maple trees seem to turn white each summer? Or what causes the strange black growths on your cherry tree? Join University of British Columbia researcher Andy Gougherty in this webinar to learn about common tree pests and diseases in the Vancouver area.  Discover how to distinguish between different types of tree ailments (caused by bacteria, fungi, and insects), as well as learn about some you are likely to encounter around town. After this webinar, you won’t look at your local trees the same way again!

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and work is the unceded and unsurrendered territories of the Coast Salish peoples, including the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. For thousands of years, Coast Salish people have walked this land and walked with it in a good way, harvesting foods and medicines and made good ceremony here. The abundance that these lands and waters provide us to live, work and play is due to the reciprocal relationships by which Coast Salish people lived and live today.
