April 8 –Integrating Interdisciplinary Tools for Urban Tree Management

Francisco Escobedo, research social scientist with the Los Angeles Center for Urban Natural Resources Sustainability, USDA Forest Service

Today, urban tree management requires more than planting and pruning trees. For better planning and management in the medium and long term, multiple tools and disciplines are also required. This presentation will show how tools based on ecology, economics, and other disciplines can contribute to the sustainability of trees. Examples of applied ecology and economics will be presented and how they can provide tools, guidelines and policies to promote the benefits of urban forests.

Integrated pest management or IPM is the use of multiple pest management tactics when pest populations reach above the action threshold. The action threshold is simply the level of pest populations when control should be implemented to avoid damage to the crop. Action thresholds help determine both the need for control actions and the proper timing of such actions.

Alabama Extension’s recommendations include products by active ingredients and labeled use rates for the primary diseases of turfgrass. Before using an insecticide, it is important to properly identify the pest. Alabama Extension has information describing the identification, biology, and management of many of the important pests of turfgrass. If an insecticide is needed, read the labeled instructions even if you have previously used the product. There have been changes in insecticide labeling recently, especially related to location and timing.
