Forest Updates: Current Issues Affecting the Health of our Trees, Lecture by John Nissen

November 16, 2023 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Have you noticed sick Ash or Beech trees in your neighborhood or local parks? Unfortunately, like much of the rest of North America, northern Chester County hasn’t been spared by the devastating impacts of Beech Leaf Disease and the Emerald Ash Borer.

Join us for an evening with John Nissen, a Service Forester with the Pennsylvania Bureau of Forestry, as he explores and discusses issues currently transforming the health and future of northern Chester County’s forests and steps being taken to combat effects.

John Nissen graduated from Pennsylvania College of Technology with a A.A.S. in Forest Technology in 1996. From 1998 to 2014, John worked in the private industry for various companies holding titles of Field Forester, Utility Forester and Consulting Forester. Since 2014, John has been with DCNR’s Bureau of Forestry based out of French Creek State Park. He currently serves as Service Forester for Lancaster, Berks, Northampton Counties and the western half of Chester County.

Doors open at The Washington at 6:30 PM. Emcee is Bill Gladden, Executive Director of French & Pickering.

Advance registration required. This lecture is being offered in-person and broadcasted virtually.
