San Diego County, CA — The Palomar Mountain Fire Safe Council is inviting community members to a
screening of a new video and live Q&A about fighting the Goldspotted Oak Borer (GSOB), the invasive
bug that has killed many thousands of San Diego County’s signature oak trees. The event will be held
Saturday, September 10th at 10:00am, at San Diego County Fire Station 79, 21610 Crestline Road on
Palomar Mountain.

“Fighting the Goldspotted Oak Borer” is an instructional video guide that shows proven techniques for understanding, identifying, and treating GSOB. Oak Grove, a small San Diego backcountry community on the north slope of Palomar Mountain, is a success story in stopping an invasive, tree-killing pest from
attacking California’s beautiful native oaks. This film documents how they’ve done it and how California
oak woodland stakeholders can save the greatest number of oak trees at the least cost.

The video shows how to save our great oak trees by using the practical tools and techniques developed
by UC Wildlife Biologist Dr. Tom Scott and Certified Arborist Bret Hutchinson, two of the most
knowledgeable, experienced, boots-on-the-ground field scientists on the case. Dr. Scott and Mr.
Hutchinson will be available for a Q&A session after the video screening.

“We need to take more action now against the Goldspotted Oak Borer because it threatens hundreds of
thousands of acres of oaks with the potential for many millions in real estate loss,” said Dr. Scott.
The Oak Grove GSOB Project is supported as a California Department of Conservation Regional Forest
and Fire Capacity Demonstration Project through the Resource Conservation District of Greater San
Diego County.
