Common Issues in the Landscape: Identification & Management 
Is it a disease? Is it an insect? Or is it a cultural problem? We've all been there - clients call us to their property and ask, "What is that problem and can you fix it?" Join Russell Norton as he reviews issues commonly encountered in the landscape this time of year, from winter injury to anthracnose to spider mites (and more!). Sharpen your diagnostic skills and learn management strategies to address a variety of landscape pests. 

CEUs: MCLP, Pesticide, NALP
If you require Pesticide credit, be sure to bring a photo ID and your pesticide license number with you to the meeting. Thank you.
