Emerald Ash Borer Treatments
August 15, 2018 – It is always challenging to convince a person into treating a tree in an effort to save it when there are so many trees around it beginning to die. I have numerous clients that are taking the route of treating their ash trees for Emerald Ash Borer infestations. One of the more frequently asked questions I get is “what if my neighbor does nothing to their trees?” The photo below was taken in Blue Bell, PA. It shows an ash tree that we began treating when I found EAB on the neighbor’s trees. We applied a trunk injection treatment last year and you can see how well the tree is doing in comparison to the neighbor’s tree, which may not leaf out next year. This is a true testament to the viability of the treatment being used.
June 15, 2018 – In the northern end of Montgomery County, PA, we have spotted lantern fly becoming a major issue for a wide variety of trees. These insects affect an array of trees including fruit trees, ornamental flowering trees, as well as large oak, maple and ash trees. Because of the array of trees they attack, the treatment methods must also range. The younger instars (black with white spots) on ornamental trees are easily controlled with horticultural oil treatments, whereas the older insects on fruit trees need to be controlled in a different way to allow the fruit to be consumed. Larger trees require a material that the tree absorbs systemically to control feeding in the parts of the canopy that can’t be reached with foliar applications. This is an example of what makes this work interesting. Some tree problems require a different solution even if it is being affected by the same pest.
Checking for Ticks
June 15, 2018 – My kids and I spend a lot of time outdoors hiking in the woods. I try to be as vigilant as I can looking for ticks on them afterwards. Having personally dealt with Lyme disease when I was younger, it is important to stay on top of this. It becomes a bit daunting when you consider the size of the tick that causes the problem. The photo of the tick in question gives you an idea of the scale, as well as the chore, that comes with trying to find them. This was found in Valley Forge National Park, but frankly could be “Anywhere,” PA as cases of Lyme disease are being reported in every county in our state. Good to know SavATree has an organic method of controlling these things that is the most effective I have seen.
