Why Are My Trees Growing So Poorly?
We have been increasingly noticing tree collapse in New York orchards over the past several years. There are a number of causal factors, both biotic and abiotic, that can cause tree death. In this webinar, Cornell and Penn State experts will provide a quick summary of some of the common agents of tree collapse typical of northeast apple orchards. Hosted by CCE-ENYCHP and CCE-LOFP.
