A half-day workshop on understanding beech bark disease (BBD) in Maine hardwood stands will be led by Maxwell McCormack, Maine Woodlands silvicultural columnist and retired research professor at the University of Maine. This is an opportunity to learn more about one of Maine’s most common hardwoods, but one whose presence in the forest now creates management dilemmas for landowners. Topics will include BBD impacts on forest stand dynamics, treatment options, types and application of herbicides, and what to expect for outcomes. There were be time for informal discussion during breaks and at the end of the session. Contact: Jeanne Siviski at 626-0005 or
