2-2:45 – CMBS: Crapemyrtle Bark Scale Update

Middle Tennessee

10-10:45am – Tree Roots and Branches: Practical Points for Practitioners

  • Dr. David Mercker

David will be discussing both the characteristics and functions of roots and and branches for the life of the tree.

11-11:45am – Guidelines for Developing Effective Integrated Pest Management Programs

  • Josiah Lockard

Increasing concerns regarding the over use of pesticides, declining pollinator populations, and rising management costs has created the need to re-examine how we approach controlling pests in both the landscape and urban forest. This session will focus on the key components of Integrated Pest Management, and illustrate a step by step process to developing a site specific program. When implemented properly, IPM practitioners will be able to improve the ecological health of the urban forest, increase biodiversity, and reduce management costs over time.

1-1:45pm – Urban Tree Development Plans

  • Jennifer Smith

With the growth and development pressures Nashville is experiencing overall, this program will highlight the important strategies, tools, partners and community outreach being implemented to sustain a healthy tree canopy. The activities in Nashville will provide models for other cities looking to grow their urban forestry program.

2-2:45 – Threats to the Urban Forest and Landscapes

  • Dr. Frank Hale

Invasive insects, mites, weeds and pathogens have taken a heavy toll on the native ecology in North America and around the world.  Forests and landscapes have been hit particularly hard in the past and the onslaught continues.  Dr. Hale will discuss current invasive pests in Tennessee and some potential pests that could threaten our state in the future such as the spotted lanternfly.  Invasive pest surveys are conducted each year through a cooperative agreement between USDA APHIS PPQ and the University of Tennessee Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology called Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey.  The impact of this and other nationwide programs will be discussed.

3-3:45pm – ProAPAH- Filling the Gaps of Real Estate Appraisal

  • Marty Shaw

On its surface, the specialty practice of Professional Amenity Plant Appraisal may seem simple and easy, but those who get involved professionally know that this subject matter is anything but simple and easy. This session gets into the nuanced nuts and bolts of the subject matter and provides clarity to those challenging subject areas that can make plant appraisal difficult to defend. This session explains the three basic approaches to value by clearly identifying all the appraisal problem elements, and how to analyze the relevant characteristic data credibly and reliably. Because the professional plant appraiser’s opinion is important to users, it may be scrutinized in the extreme. The reward of being tested, however difficult the challenge, will certainly result in establishing more relevance and credibility, having gained greater clarity in the effort. It is increasingly important for professional plant appraisers (and others) to perceive the practice of professional plant appraisal as a worthwhile and credible endeavor.

East Tennessee

10-10:45am – Urban Forestry Workforce Development

  • Dr. Sharon Jean-Philippe

The demand for qualified individual filling positions in arboriculture, urban forestry and landscape management are growing every day. This talk will discuss successes and challenging to fill workforce demands. Specifically, developing external components of engagement such as internships, experiential opportunities and recruitment strategies. Lastly, this talk will review a recent research article public in the Journal of Forestry that analyzed job posting and interviews specific to urban forestry career ladder.

11-11:45am – Establishing Tree Ordinances

  • Jonathon Nessle

The program is a discussion of issues to consider when developing tree protection ordinances. Tree Board members, community activists, arborists – anyone who cares about the the urban forest will get information that will help you develop a tree protection ordinance effort in your town.

1-1:45pm – The Importance of Healthy Trees in our Environments

  • Tom Stebbins

Studies show trees play a huge role in our social, health and financial well-being. We discuss how to choose the best trees to achieve these objectives in our urban environment. Ideas will be presented on adding increased diversity, pest resistant choices, natives and great performing cultivars to our urban yards and neighborhoods.

2-2:45 – Timing and Effectiveness of Tree Systemics

  • Jim Cortese

Jim will be speaking specifically about bark spray applications of insecticides, fungicides and others. He will discuss how they work, and when are the best times to use them. I will also discuss their use in relation to sprays, soil treatments and injections.

3-3:45pm – Creative Choices for the Urban Forest

  • Gene Hyde

Gene will provide examples of how he was able to use imaginative thinking for solutions to problems he has encountered during his 28 years as the City Forester for Chattanooga. Time will be allotted at the end of the presentation for members of the audience to present their own creative solutions to unusual situations. The goal of this session is to encourage “out-of-the-box” thinking in order to solve difficult problems.
