Sugar maple is one of the most iconic and economically important trees in our forests. This webinar will address some of the most important current and potential insect pests and stressors that may accentuate their impacts. Insects (and other pests) tend to target specific parts of trees. By understanding these parts, and their interaction with pests, owners, producers and managers can better understand and utilize methods of control. Join Mark Whitmore of the Cornell University Department of Natural Resources to learn general principles of forest entomology, and the ecology and management of a variety of invasive and native insects of sugar maple.
Armillaria may predispose some maple to greater damage by insects
