Insect Pests

How can you help stop the spread?

Our local forests are not only threatened by exotic plant species but also by non-native pests. These animals, most of which are insects, can wipe out an entire trees species in a matter of years. Some pests defoliate trees during the growing season, while others feed on the internal conducting tissues. Regardless of their method of operation, these invasive insects are detrimental to the health and growth of our forests. Please take a moment to learn more about the following species which may be found on your property. Call the village forester for further assistance on removal and prevention.
