2016 Chatham Landscape Conference Resource Page

The theme for the 2016 Chatham Landscape Conference was “Growing Greener.” All sessions focused on practices and methods landscape, nursery and turf professionals can implement to minimize negative impacts on the environment, wildlife and human health.


Turfgrass Integrated Pest Management Strategies, Dr. Charles Peacock, NC State University Crop Science

Assessing and Managing Tree Risk to Scale Insect  Infestations, Dr. Steve Frank, NCSU Entomology

Alternatives to Traditional Herbicides for Landscape Weed  Management, Dr. Joe Neal, NCSU Horticulture


Landscape professionals have a tremendous opportunity to protect and sustain native pollinators and honey bees. Managed landscapes can provide vital foraging habitat for pollinators if the right plants are planted and pesticides are used carefully and thoughtfully. Attend this session to learn how you can minimize pesticide impacts and create valuable foraging habitat for pollinators within urban landscapes.
