Diagnosing and Managing Abiotic Disorders of Trees
What’s wrong with my tree? Why is my tree sick, but my neighbor’s looks great? Why did my tree die? Simple questions with complex answers. We will get to the root of the problem by discussing the diagnostic process and focusing our attention on abiotic factors. Understanding the underlying cause of tree declines will help us implement proper PHC strategies to recover trees and promote long term tree

Understand the diagnostic process, Manion’s Disease Spiral, and explore examples of abiotic disorders of trees.
