Forest Health- Pests and Diseases

The Forest Pest Management section of the Maryland Department of Agriculture surveys for numerous invasive and established forest pests throughout the state. Based upon these surveys, treatments for hemlock woolly adelgid, gypsy moth, and emerald ash borer are proposed and implemented. Our survey results and treatment methods, both chemical and biological, will be discussed. Surveys for exotic Asian defoliators, oak decline, beech leaf disease, walnut twig beetle, saltwater intrusion, and southern pine beetle will also be discussed.
