The UN General Assembly has declared 2020 the "International Year of Plant Health". For this reason this year's Tree Care Conference is focussing on questions of tree health and control of invasive pests in woody plants. The JKI-Institute for National and International Plant Health (AG) is a contributing partner of the conference and will present several lectures about pests in general and specifically quarantine pests in trees. Two of the most dreaded quarantine pests in Germany are the Asian Longhorn Beetle (ALB) and the Pine Wood Nematode.
Dr. Björn Hoppe of the Institute AG gave an interview about the ALB (in German), which can be watched here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MI0_rjo6q2g&feature=youtu.be
