American beech have been declining in the presence of beech leaf disease (BLD) over the past eight years. BLD was first found in Lake County, Ohio in 2012 but has now been seen in more than 40 counties across multiple states as of 2019. In this webinar, you'll learn about the short history of BLD and what we're doing to combat this devastating issue. The presentation will be given by Daniel Volk from the Cleveland Metroparks. Continuing education credits will be available for ISA and SAF.
