Forestry Lunch Breaks – Root Rot Signs and Disease Cycles

February 14 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm PST

Western Washington is home to some of the most productive forestland in the world, but that doesn’t mean our trees are “out of the woods” when it comes to pests and disease.  Root rots are the most common biotic killers of trees in this region.  If you’re a landowner, the chances are you’ve dealt with a root rot fungus at some point or will in the future.  In this series, we’ll discuss the life cycles, hosts, identification, and management of the most common root rot fungi in Washington.

All sessions will be presented by Rachel Brooks, Ph.D., a forest pathologist with the WDNR Forest Health Division.


  • Monday (2/13): Symptoms of Common Root Rots
  • Tuesday (2/14): Root Rot Signs and Disease Cycles
  • Wednesday (2/15):  Root Rot Management
  • Thursday (2/16):  Lesser Known Root Rots

When and Where: February 13-16, 2023 – 12-12:30PM (Online)
