Webinar on invasive pest coming up

Find out more about polyphagous shot-hole borer (PSHB) at an industry webinar. The pest is having a devastating effect on trees in and around Perth and is a focus for the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development and the nursery industry in Western Australia.

NGIWA Executive Officer and HMAA member Lisa Passmore says it is of significant concern for the industry particularly with the loss of precious urban canopy and in the midst of a heatwave! We need more trees… not less she said.

For more information on the borer see agric.wa.gov.au/borer. Keep up to date with the pest through the upcoming webinar on February 23 from 3.30pm-5.00pm (WA time) and register using this link: https://events.teams.microsoft.com/event/758d32.
