ForestConnect - Beech Bark Disease and Understory Interference
The Legacy of Beech Bark Disease and Understory Interference in Today’s Northern Hardwoods. Presented by Dr. Kimberly Bohn, Penn State University Cooperative Extension.

Beech bark disease has afflicted North America for more than a century. As the disease syndrome moved in waves of death from the Maritime Provinces, it left behind a forest with characteristics that have become known as the “aftermath forest.” Join Dr. Kimberly Bohn with this presentation describing the progression of the “aftermath forest” following beech bark disease infestations. Learn also of the variety of treatment options to control interfering understory beech thickets. Mechanical and chemical options will be presented for varying densities and sizes of beech stems, including appropriate herbicide application rates and timing.
