Learn more about forest pests

Trees have been hit hard by recent years of drought and last winter’s harsh weather. And it’s not just weather affecting our forests.

Invasive pests like emerald ash borer, Asian longhorned beetle and thousand canker disease of walnut threaten urban and rural trees. Purdue University and the Indiana Urban Forest Council are hosting an early detector training for people who want to be able to identify invasive forest pests and the damage they cause and then report their findings. The training is scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 12 at the Jeffersonville Township Public Library, 211 E. Court Ave., Jeffersonville.

The all-day workshop will include a morning classroom session and an afternoon field workshop. Cost to attend is $20, which covers lunch and refreshments. Register online at or contact Adam Witte in the Purdue Entomology Department at 765-494-0822 or
