Tree care professionals and 5 invasive pests: Part 1

Tree care professionals and 5 invasive pests: Part 1

The Emerald Ash Borer has recently received the most attention in the United States. However, it is far from the only threat to trees.

State and federal authorities are monitoring 15 invasive pests that are considered to be the most damaging in the U.S. to agriculture and trees This federal data shows the large scope of the overall problem.

Forty of the 50 U.S. states have at least one of targeted pests under federal quarantine, according to www.hungrypests.com, which is run by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. All of the 50 states that are listed have suitable habitats for more than one of the pests.

European Gypsy moth

Egyptian Gypsy Month

The European Gypsy Moth is such a huge threat because its caterpillars feed on over 300 species of trees/shrubs and have ravenous appetites. The caterpillars defoliate trees, this makes the trees vulnerable to other diseases and pests. Some signs might include visible egg masses, caterpillars and adult moths, along with defoliated trees. The moth has been found in states such as Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin. Kentucky is considered to be at high risk.

Please contact an arborist if you have any concerns with these invasive pests.

what people say

  • Jared and his Team at Get-R-Cut did an excellent job removing two trees in our back yard and trimming 4 large oaks we had in our front yard. I have worked with Jared on other projects in the past and I will continue to call on Jared for future projects.

  • They took our two trims, did other trimming and cleaned up well. I am totally satisfied with their work and recommend them. They went beyond expectations.
    John Jack

  • 65 year old Willows, several pines and a few oaks that were damaged had to be removed, Jared and his team were thorough, on time, professional. Clean up was great, they didn't damage the yard which was very wet from major rain. The yard looked great and we hosted a wedding that summer. Over 10 trees and brush removed... it was a huge job. Took less than 5 days I believe. We will use them again.
