Sudden Oak Death was first reported in California around 1995 and since has spread considerably. A two hour workshop at the Vet’s Hall in Garberville last Thursday, June 30, 2011, focused on issues surrounding the plant disease and was presented by Yana Valachovic, Forest Advisor, and Chris Lee, Sudden Oak Death Project Coordinator, both from the UC Cooperative Extension.
