Trees like all plants are at times susceptible to insect and plant pathogen pests.  New pests are arriving with increasing frequency. These can be dangerous to both native and ornamental shade trees.  The first step in fighting tree pests is recognizing their damage and the signs and symptoms associated with their presence. Once identified, a control program can be developed to reduce the impact of tree pest on tree performance.
