This invasive insect, native to Asia, has recently spread across the northeastern United States. Feeding on more than 70 species of plants and trees including wild and cultivated grape, hops, tree of heaven, walnut, maple, and birch; Spotted Lanternfly attacks attract other insects to feed, and cause tree mortality over a short period of time.
Emerald Ash Borer
This metallic wood boring beetle was found in Detroit, Michigan and Ontario, Canada in 2002, and has continued to spread into neighboring states and eventually across the U.S. and Canada.
This condition, if allowed to progress, will cause slow growth, leaf loss, and eventually tree death. Chlorosis is often caused by deficiencies of the micro-elements iron and manganese, and is particularly prevalent in oak.
