2014 Programs: Michigan Trees, their Past, Present, and Future
During 2014, we will be presenting a series of programs and field trips focused on the charismatic mega-flora of our region, the trees. We will be providing opportunities to learn about tree identification, the communities or habitats they form, threats they are facing, and much more. Speakers will include:
Dr. Donald Dickmann, Professor Emeritus, MSU. Dr. Dickmann will provide a broad overview of the forest communities of Michigan – where they occur, which species they support, and how we can manage and conserve them. He wrote the book on the subject.
Dr. Michael Walters, Professor of Forestry, MSU. Dr. Walters will provide a perspective on the past, present, and future of trees and tree communities of Michigan.
Dr. Josh Springer, Research Associate, MSU. Dr. Springer will discuss the diversity of pests that plague our diversity of trees, with a special emphasis on his research regarding the chestnut blight.
