Join Nick Brazee, UMass Extension Plant Pathologist, for this workshop where participants will gain hands-on experience with many important landscape and forest diseases of trees and shrubs. The UMass-Amherst campus offers a wide variety of ornamental and forest trees and shrubs of all ages. Selected diseases will range from leaf spots, needle casts, root rot, stem cankers, rusts, anthracnose and more. An introductory lecture will review the basics of diagnostic plant pathology followed by a walking tour of campus. The day will end with a laboratory session using microscopy to view prepared slides. The class will be kept small for plenty of one-on-one interaction. Lunch is on your own; morning coffee will be provided.
