Abstract: Eleven issues of Volume 8 of Branching Out - An Integrated Pest Management Newsletter for Trees and Shrubs were published in 2001. The newsletter was sent to 712 subscribers and an additional 80 cooperators. Readers received timely information for identifying and managing a wide array of insect and disease problems on trees and shrubs. With this the first year of implementation of the New York State Neighbor Notification Law for pesticide applicators on Long Island and in several upstate counties, timely information about pests and pest management options was especially valuable.
