Telluride's Wilkinson Public Library to host forest health workshop, Friday, May 8

Forest health 8.5x11 Poet Ogden Nash wrote poems that amounted to bite size op ed pieces inveighing against society's shortsightedness. The one about loss of trees due to commercialism goes like this:

"I think that I shall never see
A billboard lovely as a tree.
Perhaps, unless the billboards fall,
I'll never see a tree at all.
(from "Song of the Open Road," 1933)

Telluride's tree problem is different, but no less daunting: bark beetles and other creepy crawlies are on the march – or is it munch? Sudden Aspen Decline (SADS) and Magnesium Chloride also enter into the picture, which is not pretty.

For the Big Picture on what amounts to a big and growing problem,  the place to be is the Program Room, Wilkinson Public Library, Friday, May 8, 12 – 3:30 p.m., when The New Community Coalition, the San Miguel River Basin/Colorado State University Extension, and Wilkinson Public Library and a panel of experts present a forest health workshop aptly themed "See the Forest and the Trees!"
