Forest.Health Tree Protection Workshop Proceedings
November 28 – 29, 2018, Washington D.C.
The Forest.Health Tree Protection Workshop assembled a wide range of expertise and perspectives on the challenge of identifying the state of knowledge in novel tree protection technologies. The outcomes of the workshop reflected the broad range of participant viewpoints presented.
The workshop objectives were: (1) to identify the state of knowledge in novel tree protection technologies with a focus on North American ash as a current genus under threat and using American chestnut as an example of how an intervention strategy can be implemented; (2) to identify research gaps in tree protection focusing on the host tree; and (3) to set recommendations for research priorities and next steps.
