Beech Bleeding Canker scripted presentation

A scripted presentation that will introduce one to beech bleeding canker, Phytophthora kernoviae, a disease not known to be in the United States that may pose a serious risk to US plants should it be introduced. USDA has been and continues to survey for this disease but we ask that members of the Sentinel Plant Network keep their eyes out for it as well. Monitoring for Phytophthoras is difficult because symptoms on foliar plants look like those caused by other, less serious diseases and various abiotic disorders. **This pest is not known to be in North America and is intended for public garden and other green industry professionals working on the front lines.
