What’s All the Stress About? Could Be Aphids!

This month, we’re noticing many new insect infestations on trees around the DFW area. Because many of our urban trees are stressed from heat, improper watering and lack of fertilization, they are more susceptible to pest problems. Aphids are one of those pests invading trees right now, as seen on the leaves of the post oak (in photo) that we recently inspected.

Feed your trees properly year-round

For many, trees seem like self-sufficient, permanent fixtures in the landscape. It's easy to forget that they need to be cared for and fertilized just like smaller ornamentals in your garden. The urban environment can be very tough on our trees. If you have a well-kept yard, neatly mowed and manicured, you probably have hungry trees.
