I'm a specialist in pests, diseases, and invasive plants that impact forests and shade trees. My primary background is in entomology, ecology, and forestry. I also have general knowledge of other forest/tree diseases and disorders.

Due to my work in this field, I take a lot of microscope pictures of bark beetles and other tiny insects that usually aren't noticed. This means that many observations of these obscure insects never get confirmed as "research grade." But if you're a fellow weirdo who is familiar with these bugs, please chime in! I appreciate confirmations, but I especially encourage corrections (if you think I'm wrong).
