Spring has Sprung

Winter is gone and Spring is here. Be careful though, it will be gone in the blink of an eye and Summer will bear done on us with vengeance, so enjoy these cool mornings and pleasant afternoons.

They're everywhere, they're everywhere. Caterpillars are invading the trees and Lubbers are already hatching, so be on the lookout for chewed leaves and webbing in the trees. Mature trees can handle most outbreaks, but young trees can defoliate with some degree of harm.

Laurel and other Oak trees have tasseled and are putting out new growth, but the Live Oaks are just now dropping their leaves. One more month of sneezing and watering eyes for those who suffer.

Mistletoe can still be easily seen now and should be removed if possible. Moss should be treated now if so desired. Remember, moss is not a parasite and does not feed on the tree.
