2019 Webinar: Oak Wilt: Biology, Distribution, and Management Approaches


Oak wilt is an important disease affecting primarily red oaks throughout the region. Recent apparent range expansion to the north and west has caused concern among foresters in recent years. A variety of treatment options are available to manage oak wilt outbreaks in forested settings. At this webinar we’ll hear first from Jenny Juzwik, a research pathologist with the USFS Northern Research Station on the state of knowledge about oak wilt in Minnesota. We’ll then hear from Laura Reuling of the UMN Department of Forest Resources (formerly of Wisconsin DNR) and Ben Walker of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest about forest-based treatment options they have tested and described on the Great Lakes Silviculture Library.

Date:  Tuesday July 16, 2019 from noon-1pm central
Speakers: Jennifer Juzwik, USFS-NRS, Laura Reuling, UMN-Forest Resources, and Ben Walker, Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest
