NYSA Annual Winter Conference
Our keynote speaker will be Philip van Wassenaer with an opening presentation on “Tree Risk Assessment, from Simple to Complex” following up later in the conference with “Reduce the Crown, Retain the Tree.”
We will offer sessions in the “Tree Academy” and “DEC” tracks. Here is a sneak peek at some of the speakers you can expect at this year’s conference:
- Beth Brantley will talk about “The Conifer Conundrum”: the prevalence of foliar pathogens, environmental conditions, soils, what is happening across the eastern seaboard to our conifers.
- Greg Packman will discuss ground-based scouting for Massaria Fungus in London Planetrees, and managing Massaria infected London Planetrees after diagnosis.
- Mike Tilford will talk safety regarding Personal Protective Equipment provided by the employer, and inspecting your gear and remaining safe.
- Mark Duntemann will cover parts of his BCMA preparation course.
