Aphids are a common insect found on a wide range of trees and shrubs. These insects can be found feeding on the underside of plants, sucking sap from the tender new growth of leaves. Aphids don’t cause serious damage to plants they are feeding on, however the ‘honeydew’ (a sticky substance they excrete) can become a nuisance when sidewalks, vehicles, and outdoor seating is impacted. In addition, the honeydew attracts a fungus (called sooty mold) which brings a whole host of other issues. Lady bugs are natural predators and help with controlling aphid populations. Treating aphids should be considered when tree health or aesthetic impact is a concern. https://www.rainbowtreecare.com/fact-sheets/Aphids-Fact-Sheet.pdf

Protecting local pollinators through teamwork! Rainbow Treecare brought in the Pest Experts division to eliminate what was initially thought to be a wasp’s nest in a tree before pruning. It turned out to be a honey bee hive, so Rainbow Pest Experts contacted a local bee keeper to relocate the nest. The bees were safely extracted and relocated from the cavity of this tree, and the pruning was able to be done sting-free. No pollinators were harmed in the making of this video.

Red thread is currently popping up all over the Metro Area due to the recent waves of hot and humid weather. It is a fungal disease and presents itself as blighted patches throughout the lawn that develop pinkish-red fungal tips of the affected plants. Maintaining adequate nitrogen levels through fertilization is the best way to combat the disease; however, some more severe cases may require a fungicide application to minimize damage.

The whitespire birch is a cultivar of the gray birch and native to North America. This species tolerates a wide variety of soils including poor, drier, sandy or rocky soils; however this species does best in the cooler northern climates with cooler, moist soils. Although the bark of the whitespire birch doesn’t provide the same papery, flaky bark that the paper and river birch sports, it still provides winter interest with its white bark even as it ages. An additional characteristic that the whitespire birch has that makes it a great addition to anyone’s yard is that it requires very little structural maintenance.
