Here, we have a really wonderful talk from Mike Raupp at Barcham Trees’ Big Barn Conference from 2015. Looking at invasive species of pests and pathogens, he explores the relationship between trees and such pests, and gives us food for thought about how to approach biosecurity and landscaping / forestry operations. How this video has only 15 views in a little over one month is astonishing, so hopefully this video will gain more traction if it is shared (as it should be!).
“The plant that is naive is simply going to be crushed“. Sad, but true.
Enjoy, and please share the video (and the other ones from the conference found here)!
