The threat and impact of invasive tree insects and diseases is an on-going reality in San Diego County. These tree pests cause environmental, economic and in some cases, public safety challenges and can effect multiple landscapes, ownerships, and industries. UCCE San Diego staff work collaboratively with University and public/private cooperators to deliver education and outreach programming to various public and private land owners/land managers and industry professionals about invasive insects and diseases impacting trees in our urban and natural forests.
For more information on these pests and our programs, visit the individual pest-specific websites.
