The trees in your yard provide you with much-needed shade from the hot Tucson sun, and contribute to the overall aesthetic appeal of your property. In order to make sure your trees are hardy and healthy, work with a Tucson landscaping company with experience caring for all types of trees. You may have trees that are native to the area, or that have been transplanted from other regions. Either way, your trees are vulnerable to a variety of different types of threats. If your trees are not adapted to the climate, they could be at risk of drought. There are also pests that can harm your trees if they are not cared for. Read on to learn about common threats to Tucson trees.
Though their name may make them sound delicate, these pests can do serious damage to your trees. Lace bugs favor broad-leaf evergreens, leaving behind yellowish-silver marks on leaves. If you notice signs of lace bugs, take action quickly, as this can increase your chances of beating the infestation.
Mites attack a wide variety of plants, and thrive in climates that are warm and dry like Tucson. These pests pose a serious risk to your trees, and will make a significant impact on the way your trees look. To keep up the curb appeal of your home, have your landscaping company look for signs of mites.
Certain types of pests target trees that are already weak or unhealthy, which is just another reason that regular tree maintenance is essential. Borers burrow into the tree trunk and lay eggs, making it even more difficult for your trees to bounce back and recover from being unhealthy.
Weevils are common pests that typically reside around fruits and flowers. One type of weevil specifically attacks palm trees, causing damage to the trees and even death. Leaves of affected plants may have notches around the edges, a sure sign of weevils at work.
