Check your trees for ALB damage!

With spring having officially sprung last week, it will not be long before the trees start leafing out. That means this is your last prime opportunity to check your trees for damage caused by the Asian longhorned beetle before the leaves make it harder to see the trunks and branches. For more information, including tips on what signs to look for, check this note from the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources. You can also download a printable ALB damage detection sheet here.
