Forest and Tree Health in the San Juan Islands
Dead and dying trees have proliferated throughout the San Juan Islands, especially western red cedars, causing concern for many property owners. Learn why so many trees are dying right now and what property owners can do. Learn what makes forests healthy or unhealthy and how to recognize when there’s a problem on your property. Topics include insects, diseases, and drought, including their environmental roles and the important interactions between them. Learn about what property owners should do (and not do) to increase tree resilience and mitigate impacts.
Kevin Zobrist is a professor with Washington State University. He coordinates the Extension Forestry program in the Puget Sound area, working with people who own forested property. Kevin has two forestry degrees from the University of Washington. His research interests include forestry education and outreach methodology, using technology in forestry education, forest ecology, and native trees. He is based in Everett and is the author of the book Native Trees of Western Washington.
