Protecting oak trees for future generations in Europe and Central Asia

November 26 @ 11:00 - 13:00 CET

FAO presents   


Protecting oak trees for future generations in

Europe and Central Asia

Forests face new threats from both native pest species with changing biology and behaviour, and also non-native, sometimes even invasive, pest species; the latter of which are often very difficult to manage.Recognizing this issue, the countries of Europe and Central Asia established the Forest Invasive Species Network for Europe and Central Asia (REUFIS) where scientists, forest managers and policy-makers can share information and coordinate activities related to forest invasive species.

Oaks are one of the dominating tree species in many forest types across the region, and  play an important  economic, societal and ecological role.  Protection of the oak species from pests and diseases is pivotal for future of regional forests and forest ecosystems.

The webinar will

  • Raise awareness and preparedness for future pest and disease outbreaks in oak forests;
  • Share experiences on good practises on Integrated Pest Management for pests and diseases of oak tree species;
  • Contribute to the goals of the International Year of Plant Health 2020.
