What's New - Fall 2013
Another Beetle found in Colorado
Emerald ash borer, an invasive insect responsible for the death or decline of tens of millions of ash trees in 21 states, has been recently found in Colorado. This small, green metallic beetle, found on September 23rd in Boulder County, attacks all ash species. Some signs of infestation are: a general decline in the appearance of the tree, thinning of upper branches and twigs, loss of leaves, and S-shaped tunneling under the bark. Earth-Wise will continue to monitor the situation for our customers. For additional information, visit www.colorado.gov/ag/dpi and click on "Emerald Ash Borer".
'Tis the Season for Needle Drop
Every fall Earth-Wise receives phone calls from customers concerned about the browning needles on their pine, spruce and fir trees. Not to worry, this is a normal process. Depending on species, location and overall health of the tree, conifers typically hold on to needles for 3 – 7 years. Older needles become less efficient at photosynthesis due to shading from new growth and excess wax buildup. Thus, these older needles are no longer productive for the tree and they are shed in the fall.
