READ ABSTRACT

Abstract

Stress factors affecting oak trees in eastern CT including drought, defoliation due to gypsy moth caterpillars, and impacts of native opportunistic pathogens have caused the deaths of oak trees on tens of thousands of woodland acres in eastern Connecticut. In some places canopy loss is severe and in many the potential success of desirable regrowth is questionable. This webinar will explain the causes of the issue, describe the degree and extent of the problem and present several potential management scenarios. Information about opportunities for technical and possible financial assistance for private woodland owners through USDA-NRCS programs will also be provided.
