Tree Health in the Aftermath & Turf: What We Learned from 2011 to Help in 2012 iCal

Monday, March 26 2012 5:15 PM - 7:45 PM

Seneca County Cornell Cooperative Extension (SCCCE) will be hosting a timely update for green industry professionals and the general public on the tree health and turf.  This webinar is part of the 2012 Cornell University Cooperative Extension Landscape Webinar Series and will take place Monday March 26th from 5:15 PM–7:45 PM in the SCCCE conference room at 308 Main Street Shop Centre, Third Floor, Waterloo.
 
The program will consist of transplanting & aftercare for trees and how to help your turf in 2012.   Following the storms of 2011 many professionals will be establishing and maintaining new specimens in the urban environment. Nina Bassuk, Ph.D., Professor and Director of Cornell’s Urban Horticulture Institute will discuss best management practices relative to the transplanting, establishment and maintenance of trees so they can perform optimally and remain vigorous, pest-free and aesthetically pleasing throughout the 2012 growing season.
 
Cornell University Associate Professor & NYS Turfgrass Extension Specialist Frank Rossi, Ph.D., will review the major pests and environmental stress factors that lead to significant pesticide use last season that may be avoided in the future. Particular emphasis will be placed on disease and weed pests, turfgrass selection, irrigation and soil conditions.
 
Two NYS DEC credits in category 3a,10 or 25 and one credit for category 3b as well as 2 ISA CEU’s and CNLP credits will be available.  Please call 315-539-9251 for more information or to register.  The program is free of charge but advanced registration is appreciated for planning purposes.
