Common Tree Pests and Diseases
Pests and diseases can be quite frustrating when they attack our trees. Time, energy and money have been invested into each tree, and it's our goal to keep the urban forest as healthy as possible.
To date, there is only one disease in town that is a major pest: Dutch Elm Disease. Additionally, we are on constant watch for a new pest, the emerald ash borer. EAB has not been found in the State of North Dakota but has been found in other parts of the Midwest. Seasonally, there are numerous other maladies that affect our trees, but most can be managed in a reasonable way.
