Advanced Insect and Disease Field Session:
Identification, Life Cycles, Control Measures and Silvicultural Regimes
July 8-11, 2013, Hood River, Oregon
Insect and disease conditions can complicate harvest plans and affect
silvicultural regimes. These pests can also cause economic and aesthetic damages with long-lasting consequences. Resource managers need a
solid understanding of pest biology and management options to make
informed silvicultural, harvest planning and management decisions.
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.
Transportation and box lunches are provided daily.
Note: After June 10, 2013, reduced rate rooms will be subject to availability. Please make your reservations early since the Hood River Inn will sell out over the field trip dates.
