Tree Diversity and Exotic Threats: The 5% Solution    

IF you missed Dr. Ball's talk this year at our February Conference, you're in luck! He is speaking May 05 at noon (Eastern) for the Urban Forestry Today' Noonhour FREE Webcast. Dr. John Ball from South Dakota State University, will discuss on “Tree Diversity and Exotic Threats: The 5% Solution ”.   By all accounts, and EXCELLENT talk when he delivered it at the ISA Ontario Conference in February 2016.

With increased international trade our urban forests continue to experience a plethora of stress-factors that include a continuing assault from exotic pest threats. Diversification related to urban tree selection is one important component of plant health care. Dr. John Ball will outline proper steps to choosing urban trees, with emphasis for diversity being at the genera, not species, level. This presentation will explain why the old "10-20-30 rule" needs to become simply "the 5% solution."
