This workshop will help landowners and users, landscape and forest professionals, and all residents of the state to identify current and potential invasive forest pests and their host species, understand the threats to our forests and woodlands posed by these pests, and learn how to report suspected pest sightings or damage to trees that may be a result of pest infestations.

All participants will receive an information packet with fact sheets about the major pest species, a list of host trees that the species may be found on, and other relevant information.
