Observations in the Field:

Mimosa Webworm in Concord, MA

October 2, 2019 – The mimosa webworm can infest a locust tree very quickly and do significant damage. Homadaula anisocentra, also known as the mimosa webworm, is a species of moth in the family Galacticidae. It is considered a pest of ornamental plants. They attack the leaves of mimosa and honeylocust. This species was introduced into the United States from China in the 1940s. If you need treatment for pests like this, contact SavATree right away!

Funnel Weavers

Acton, MA Lawn Care

October 2, 2019 – I thought this was a pretty cool site. While showing my crew their work for the day, I walked upon this funnel spider web.The notorious grass spider funnel web weavers construct funnel-shaped webs near to the ground in which to trap their prey. Once the prey is trapped, the grass spider can quickly crawl over and inject it with venom. If you see one don’t step on it! Spiders need to eat too. 

Crimson King Maple in Lincoln, MA

Lincoln, MA Tree Service

October 2, 2019 – This treatment is known as Arbor balance. It is a plant growth regulator, stunting the overall growth on the outside, while enhancing the overall size of the root system. History hasn’t been pruned in 3 years. This is a great treatment when you’re trying to make your Ornamental Shade Tree fit where you would like it in your urban environment! Contact SavATree today for great advice on caring for your property.

Crabapples in Chelmsford, MA

Chelmsford, MA Tree Care

October 2, 2019 – It’s not common that it happens, but this warm trend in New England appears to have this crabapple tree confused. Nevertheless, it’s pretty to see a crabapple tree blooming in October!

Sawfly Spotting

September 19, 2018 – This was a cool find. I’ve been In the tree care industry for a pretty long time and I’ve only seen these Dogwood Sawflies a few times. In large numbers, they can do significant damage. However, in the Northeast they are hardly seen due to the harsh winters. Sawfly larvae have chewing mouth parts that leave holes in the leaves. Some species of Sawfly leave a very characteristic feeding damage called windowpaning. Basically, they eat the green part of the leaf, leaving a fine layer of clear leaf tissue. Older damage browns and can sometimes look like a disease lesion. The Dogwood Sawfly, Macremphytus sp., is an interesting Sawfly because the second larval instar (stage in the larval development between molts) is covered in a white waxy covering and the last larval instar is yellow and black. The female Sawfly inserts her eggs into the leaf in rows along the leaf veins. The eggs hatch into the caterpillar-like larvae that feed on the leaves.
