Tonight: Portola Valley workshop on preventing sudden oak death

 

In a bit of positive news about the extended drought, there's been an upside for oak trees in that the moisture-loving pathogen that causes sudden oak death has been less of a threat.

But with a wet winter predicted, the Forest Pathology Lab at the University of California at Berkeley is holding a series of SOD prevention workshops in the Bay Area, including one in Portola Valley at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 24, at the Town Center at 765 Portola Road.

The workshop, intended for professionals and a lay audience, will include information on areas at greatest risk for the disease, the most effective treatments , determining which trees should be treated, and how to care for oak trees during a drought.

Go to suddenoakdeath.org for more information, or call Katie Harrell at (510) 847-5482 or write to her at kpalmieri@berkeley.edu.
