Cooperators: D.D. O’Brien , S. Tracy, Department of Plant Pathology, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY; D. Gilrein, Long Island Horticultural Research Station; G. Couch, IPM Program

Abstract: Eleven issues of Volume 13 of Branching Out - An Integrated Pest Management Newsletter for Trees and Shrubs were published in 2006. The newsletter was sent to 558 subscribers and an additional 79 cooperators. Readers received timely information for identifying and managing a wide array of insect and disease problems on trees and shrubs. With more counties throughout the state adopting the New York State Neighbor Notification Law, timely information about pests and pest management options has become essential for the industry, and Branching Out is one of the few sources of such information.
