This Thursday, August 27, at noon-time, Dr. Kelby Fite of Bartlett Tree Experts will present a webinar on soil diagnostics and management. Dr. Fite is a Vice President at Bartlett and is Director of the Bartlett Research Lab in North Carolina. His research has focused on the interrelationship between soils and roots and how various tree planting strategies influence the long-term health of trees.
This webinar will be the third in the series that CTPA has organized as the virtual replacement of its Summer Meeting. There will be one more following this Thursday’s presentation. On September 3rd, Dr. Robert Marra of the CT Agricultural Experiment Station will talk about beech leaf disease. This is a newly emerging disease in Connecticut that Dr. Marra has been tracking closely.

Receipt of credits is dependent on successfully taking a quiz. A link to this quiz will be posted at the end of the webinar.
