Leaf Spots, Scorches, and Wilts Affecting Southeastern US Deciduous Trees

Leaf spot diseases can ruin the look of deciduous trees in urban landscapes; however, they rarely are life-threatening for deciduous trees. On the other hand, vascular wilts and leaf scorch diseases will kill trees over time. Their symptoms can be confusing, so proper identification is needed to know which disease is affecting the trees. Often disease management options for urban trees are limited. In this webinar, Extension Agents will learn about disease management options for each disease.

Speakers: Dr. Jean Williams-Woodward - Associate Professor and Extension Plant Pathologist, University of Georgia

About the Extension Foundation

The Extension Foundation was formed in 2006 by Extension Directors and Administrators. Today, the Foundation partners with Cooperative Extension through liaison roles and a formal plan of work with the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) to increase system capacity while providing programmatic services, and helping Extension programs scale and investigate new methods and models for implementing programs. The Foundation provides professional development to Cooperative Extension professionals and offers exclusive services to its members. In 2020 and 2021, the Extension Foundation has awarded 85% of its direct funding back to the Cooperative Extension System, 100% of funds are used to support Cooperative Extension initiatives.
