Yosemite article still educates
Thank you for locating May-June 1999 editions with the article “Past forest management promoted root disease in Yosemite Valley” (authored by myself and Dave Rizzo). I give talks in Yosemite Valley to various professional groups. The latest example was a small group of U.S. Forest Service pathologists and entomologists from Sonora who were interested in the historical-to-present-day root disease/bark beetle/tree hazard/ecology story in Yosemite Valley. I also plan to talk at the International Union of Forest Research Organizations on root and butt rots in Yosemite in August. People at these meeting often find the story interesting, and wish to read more. The California Agriculture article is ideal for handing out to these folks. I have given talks to the general public (including my own family), and have handed out copies. I have sent it to media workers, both TV and written, when the need arises.
