Hybrid WN@tL: “Diseased, Decayed, Defective, and Dangerous: When Good Trees Go Bad”

July 13, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Speaker:  Glen Stanosz, Forest & Wildlife Ecology

Description:  Trees provide a variety of benefits to society. But trees also lose branches or break when forces exceed their structural strength or the root-soil connection. Tree failure can cause severe damage to houses and other structures, deny access or use of infrastructure, and injure or kill people. Landowners have a legal “duty of care” for trees on their properties, including the responsibility to obtain expert assistance when appropriate. Learn how qualified arborists assess tree risk by estimating the likelihood of tree failure, impact, and consequences to property and people. Dr. Glen Stanosz is the UW-Madison emeritus tree and forest health professor and is also a certified arborist with additional qualifications in tree risk assessment.

Bio:  Glen Stanosz is a Wisconsin native and the Emeritus Professor of Tree and Forest Health at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  He studies the biology and management of tree diseases caused by fungi and is a Fellow of the American Phytopathological Society.  Glen is an award-winning teacher with students including university undergraduates and professionals in forestry and the green industry.
