Well spring is officially here and as the buds on the trees develop further we want you readers to be aware of the potential threats to your foliage. One of the more prominent threats is the winter moth. In early spring begins its quest to defoliate your tree before it matures. Even as it matures into an adult caterpillar it continues to wreak havoc on your trees. They typically feed off of Oaks, Maples, Basswood, Ash, and other fruiting trees. After mating the female scurries up the host tree and lays small barrel shaped eggs its entire way (up to 150). We here at Lynch Landscape & Tree Service, Inc. can help you identify the early signs of them and take care of them before they can have any impact on your property. For more information, or if you would like a representative to come take a look at any of your plants and trees, please call us immediately.
