Abstract

Tree stability evaluation is an important issue with great practical implications. In the recent years, tree potential to cause harm has been increasing in consequence of climate change effects, mainly related to windstorms and tree diseases that represent the main tree failure causes. A tree owner ...

Abstract

At the time when the 2019 plant protection trials for controlling fire blight were being conducted by Agroscope at the Stone Fruit Centre Breitenhof (canton of Basel-Landschaft), 40% of the flower buds of the untreated trees displayed symptoms. Despite this heavy pressure, high levels of efficacy...

Abstract

Climate change will have profound deleterious effects on many trees in urban environments; however, as in any biological system undergoing change, there will be benefits. On 7 February 2009, the Australian city of Melbourne experienced its hottest day on record (46.4°C [115.5°F]) after a heat wave. ...

Abstract

Street- and park-planted ash (Fraxinus spp.) trees infested with emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire) ranging in size from 30 to 55 cm (11.8 to 21.7 in) dbh and 10 to 20 m (32.8 to 65.6 feet) in height were measured over two sites. The first group was treated with an emamectin benzoate ...

Abstract

Municipalities are setting targets for increasing street tree species diversity to support resilience and enhance the supply of ecosystem services from the urban forest. Assessments of street tree composition and structure, and consequent vulnerability to the stresses of urban climate change, ...

Abstract

This study on investigating change in the material properties of ash trees after infestation by emerald ash borer (EAB) (Agrilus planipennis) occurred at two locations in northeast Ohio in the summer of 2013. The trees at either site were divided into three groups based on % canopy lost from EAB...

Abstract

Cities contain dozens of street tree species each with multiple arthropod pests. Developing and implementing integrated pest management (IPM) tactics, such as scouting protocols and thresholds, for all of them is untenable. A survey of university research and extension personnel and tree care...
