LA011: New - Fungamentals 1: The Basics of Tree and Fungi Interactions
In the urban environment trees and fungi are inseparable. The role fungi play in keeping trees alive, and on the other hand shortening their life, is not only critical to arborists and clients, but also those of us who maintain and build landscapes around these trees.
As professionals, we can bring this world to life for our clients, protect their assets from needless damage during construction, and bring immense value through deeper understanding.
This seminar will cover ID skills for decay fungi, introduce ecology of mycorrhizal fungi, fungal pathogens and how cankers form, techniques for preventing the effects of harmful fungi during and after construction, as well as management techniques for both young and old trees that play host to cankers and other common fungi.
Participants will leave with confidence in field ID, explaining fungal pathology to clients, and understanding the cost management and prevention of issues.
