Conifer Conundrum   January 28, 2021   6:30-7:30pm   Speaker: Curtis Young  It is always disheartening to see a prized conifer (pine, spruce, fir, etc.) turning brown, loosing needles, or outright dying.  When one becomes aware of their conifer declining in condition, they want to know why.  This is the conifer conundrum, why is my conifer dying?  There are multiple possibilities as to what might be killing a conifer.  Some of the causes are abiotic and some are biotic.  This program will look at some of the more common reasons for the decline and death of conifers and management suggestions.       Flyer    Registration
