“The Decline of the Big Leaf Maple” @ Olympic NaturalFResource Center
Jan 25 @ 7:00 pm

“The Decline of the Big Leaf Maple”

Our next Evening Talk is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 25th.  We are fortunate to have Dr. Daniel Omdal,                   Forest Pathologist for Washington State Department of Natural Resources Wildfire Division. Join us at 7:00 pm       in the ONRC’s Hemlock Forest Room for another great Evening Talk.

Title:  Western Washington Forest Health with a Focus on the Decline of Bigleaf Maple.

As of the end of 2018, there has been no sign of recovery of sick and dying Bigleaf Maple though Western Washington.   Forest pathologists at Washington’s DNR have been investigating the increase in symptoms and mortality in the Bigleaf Maple trees since 2011.   Dr. Omdal will discuss the results of a recently completed Masters Project from the University of Washington, which investigated the spatial patterns and environmental variable associated with the decline.   An update on Swiss Needle Cast Disease and its impacts on Douglas-fir will also be provided during the Evening Talk.

Please join us for our first Evening Talk of 2019!   Evening Talks at ONRC is funded through the Rosmond Forestry Education Fund, an endowment that honors the contributions of Fred Rosmond and his family to forestry and the Forks community.    Refreshments will be served and a potluck of your favorite dessert is encouraged.  For more information contact:  Frank Hanson at 374-4556 or fsh2@uw.edu.
