A wide variety of native and non-native insects and disease agents are all agents of change in the Minnesota woods. Their activity level and the consequences of their activity are, in many cases, influenced by drought, variable winter conditions, and other climate-related factors. This presentation, targeted to woodland owners but of interest to loggers and natural resource professionals as well, will provide an up-to-date review of this year’s most pressing forest health threats and what landowners can do to stay on top of them. Before this live presentation, consider watching Jana’s 2011 forest health overview at http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2011/03/webinar-forest-health-insects-and-disease-in-minnesota/ .
