Onsite Fungi ID Skills – Mycorhizzae:
Basic ecology and field ID of mycorhizzal fungi for practicing arborists.
As client expectations grow for arborists, we need to keep up. This means having the confidence to correctly identify the organisms that interact with trees on a daily basis. As much as competent ID of trees is expected for arborists in the field, so should ID skills related to PHC and climber safety. This lecture is meant to review the parts of a mushroom, and teach the nature of mycorhizzal interaction with roots and soil. ID and habit of three (3) fruiting bodies will be discussed in detail. By the end of this webinar you should be comfortable discussing mycorhizzal fungi and their role in the urban environment with clients.
Kyle McLoughlin has delivered numerous workshops and lectures on plant pathology and the relationship between trees and fungus. He is the City of Burlington’s Supervisor of Forest Planning and Health and owner and principle arborist of Ironwood Arboricultural Solutions. He has practiced arboriculture in Canada, the United States, and Australia. Before becoming an arborist, Kyle was a wilderness guide specializing in edible wilds.
