What's New?
Japanese maples and a number of different tree species did not lose their leaves this fall? Deciduous trees go through a process referred to as "fall abscission". This is a living process where layers of cells form to separate the leaf at the petiole. This process was interrupted due to weather conditions. Contact us to set up a spring fertilization program.

Hemlock Woolly Adelgid

Hemlock Woolly Adelgid

A Canadian Hemlock infested with woolly adelgid pests (Adelges tsugae). These insects are deadly to Hemlocks and must be controlled quickly. without treatment, many specimen plants will be lost over the next decade. Contact our office for details on how ArborCare can help control these pests without the use of toxic chemicals.

Arbor Care employs a number of different methods of controlling the woolly adelgid.  Some control options are aerial sprays, micro-trunk injection, and soil systemics, all of which are performed with little to no impact on the environment.  Choosing the proper method of control will require site inspection by one of our arborists. Please call our office if you believe your hemlocks may be infested or simply to implement a preventive maintenance program.  More Info...

Winter Moth Caterpillars

Winter Moth

While oak, maple, and apple are preferred hosts, many other deciduous plants are susceptible to damage from winter moth caterpillars. These include but are not limited to: cherry, basswood, ash, white elm, crabapple, and blueberry. Winter moth caterpillars may also drop or ‘balloon’ onto nearby plants like roses, herbaceous perennials, annuals, etc. that may be found near or beneath infested trees. Winter moth caterpillars are not usually found feeding on evergreens or broad-leaved evergreens, although they have been found on certain spruces such as Sitka spruce (Europe), and heathers (Scotland). Partial defoliation can be the norm for this species. Damage to blueberry and apple crops is especially severe as the reproductive parts responsible for fruit can be destroyed before buds open fully.  More Info...

Asian Longhorned Beetle

Asian Longhorned Beetle

The Asian Longhorned Beetle (ALB) is a relatively new introduction into the United States. It is known to occur in five distinct geographic regions of New York City, several suburbs of Chicago and more recently areas of central and eastern Massachusetts. This pest was positively identified in a small area of Worcester, Massachusetts in August 2008 but is not known to occur in any other New England state. The ALB is a wood borer that attacks live, healthy trees; it’s presence usually leads to the death of the host tree. Homeowners and concerned citizens should be aware if its signs and report any suspicious findings immediately to the proper state, federal or Extension personnel.
