Invasive species, climate change and timber trade are changing our forests. North America is losing entire tree species (avocado, redbays, ash, hemlocks, elms) and industries to pests and diseases from overseas. Join this event to learn what researchers, regulators and the industries are doing to prevent it. United Nations-Food and Agriculture Organization officer for Forest Protection Shiroma Sathyapala, visiting from the FAO headquarters in Rome, will present this lecture, which will be followed by a panel discussion among representatives of institutions responsible for forest health research, funding and practice.
