Trees and Drought



Workshop Description:

May 20, 2016
9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
4955 Energy Way in Reno
Via videoconference statewide

Prolonged drought can have severe and long-lasting effects on trees. Trees may exhibit visible damage in the short-term. In the long-term, they may reduce flower and fruit production and eventually die if damage is severe. Drought-stressed trees are also less able to protect themselves and become more susceptible to invasion by insects or disease.

This workshop will provide information on current threats to our trees, how trees respond to water stress and strategies to make our community trees more drought-resilient.

Workshop fees include certificates of attendance, refreshments and International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Funding for Keeping Your Trees Alive During a Drought is provided by USDA Forest Service through the Nevada Division of Forestry.
