Landscaping for Healthier Lakes, Ponds, Streams, and Rivers
F20/07
Rain gardens and waterside buffer gardens are a joy to see, but beauty is only where their benefits begin. If properly designed, these landscapes protect water bodies from polluted runoff and help control erosion. When designed with native flowers, grasses, shrubs, and trees, waterside gardens can also provide extraordinary support for native birds, butterflies, bees, and other wildlife. This presentation offers an introduction to how we can manage stormwater to the benefit of ourselves, our communities, and wildlife. More

Weather Extremes & Their Impacts on Tree Diseases
S20/09
This online presentation will begin with a discussion on the changes in regional weather patterns that have increased the likelihood of tropical storms and the intensity and duration of periods of drought. Using lessons learned from distant (1938) and more recent tropical storms (Irene and Sandy), and recent periods of drought, we’ll discuss the short-term and long-term impacts of these extremes on tree health, and how trees respond, particularly in terms of tree physiology. We will then discuss three tree diseases threatening the landscaped and natural forests of southern New England: oak wilt, caused by the fungus, Ceratocystis fagacearum, a disease that has caused widespread loss of oaks in Texas, the Midwest, and southeast, and which has recently turned up in New York state bacterial leaf scorch, caused by the xylem-limited bacterium, Xylella fastidiosa, which has been causing disease in a variety of deciduous hosts, particularly oaks, from Texas to New Jersey and beech leaf disease, caused by the foliar nematode, Litylenchus crenatae, and already found as of 2019 in Fairfield County. In each case, we will discuss the symptoms, the means of dispersal and spread, and, if applicable, the prognosis for treatment. If time permits, I will also touch on diseases that may not be new to New England, but which are increasing in severity in response to climate change, such as Caliciopsis canker, and the “white pine needle disease complex.” More
