June 11: Further threats to trees and shrubs. Stone and Kathy Smith, also of OSU Extension, will cover gypsy moth, viburnum leaf beetle and hemlock woolly adelgid -- non-native insects that damage or kill their respective host plants -- and looming thousand cankers disease, which is fatal to walnut trees.
June 18: Threats to woodlands and wildlife. Marne Titchenell and Eric McConnell, both of OSU Extension, and Craig Hicks of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service will detail deadly white-nose syndrome in bats; the harm done by invasive plants to wildlife and to Ohio's $22 billion-a-year forest industry; and the literal and figurative deep impact of feral pigs, which are now in southern Ohio.
June 25: Invasive plants in the landscape. Smith will look at the problems caused by buckthorn, garlic-mustard, autumn olive, bush honeysuckle and more, and will show how to identify and control them.
