Deer, voles, mice and now Asian pests threaten the tree canopies we've been trying so hard to replenish in the past 20 years.
A group of foresters meeting Thursday at the Bishop Claggett Center in Buckeystown discussed the problem, which is expected to get worse. The Maryland-Delaware chapter of the Society of American Foresters had its fall meeting at the center to discuss the latest challenges facing forestry.
