The City of Charlottetown recently hosted the Atlantic Canada Forest Health Workshop that was held at Murphy’s Community Centre this week (January 17-19). The workshop was an opportunity to share information, raise awareness, and discuss ways to improve the management of factors that are detrimental to forest health in Atlantic Canada.
Some of the topics included: the status of invasive species, discussion of forest health issues, and pest management.
Attendees included university representatives, forest pest managers from Provincial governments, arborists / city foresters from several municipalities in Atlantic Canada and representatives of Federal agencies, including the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, Canadian Forest Service and Parks Canada.
