A pest infestation can lead to the decline and eventual death of your trees. Often, an infestation from common tree pests can become widespread before you even notice them. However, a few initial signs that a pest infestation might be occurring are leaf damage or chew holes, holes in the bark, stunted leaf growth, and white spots. For the most part, many pests are invasive species and thus have few to no natural predators in our area. Therefore, the population of pests grows exponentially, quickly to infest the trees on your property. We’ve highlighted some of the most common tree pests we see in Connecticut:
