Beech Leaf Disease: How Community Scientists Can Help

June 5, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

American Beech (Fagus grandifolia) is one of the most common and important trees in New York forests and has already been decimated by Beech Bark Disease over the past several decades. Beech Leaf Disease (BLD) is a relatively newly discovered pathogen that has been wreaking havoc on beech trees (native and ornamental) throughout the state. There is much we still don’t know, and we need communities all over the state to help us monitor its spread.

This webinar will include information on what BLD is, why beech trees are so important, how to identify BLD, and how YOU can help monitor the spread of BLD in your favorite areas!

This event is in observance of New York’s annual Invasive Species Awareness Week NYISAW a state-wide invasive species outreach campaign.
