We are very fortunate to be in the redwood region, as redwood trees are remarkably disease resistant. Unfortunately, that is not the case for every tree in the Central Coast. Sudden Oak Death (Phytophthora ramorum) is prevalent and has had damaging to devastating effects on our tanoak and oak stands. Pitch Canker (Phytophthora ramorum) plagues local pines, especially Monterey Pine. Insects threats, such as the Golden Spotted Oak Borer detected near San Diego last year also offer threats to the health and welfare of our forests.
In this page, we will publish the latest findings and theories about how these diseases are transmitted and how we can mitigate their effects on our lands.
