California trees are constantly fighting a wide variety of invasive insect pests. Particularly, several species of invasive beetles are causing severe damage -and even death- to thousands of trees, both in the urban forest and in natural areas. How do these invasive beetles arrive to our urban forests? Why are they such a big problem? What can we do to protect our trees from these relentless pests? In this webinar we’ll explore theses questions, with emphasis in some of the species of invasive beetles that are causing the biggest impact in the urban forests of California.
