  • For over a decade entomologists to the north have been monitoring a pest that has devastated ash tree populations. Michigan was the first see the drama unfold, and all told since active monitoring of the emerald ash borer, an estimated 40 million trees have been killed. 

    It was inevitable that the pest would move south despite active efforts to contain the pest through quarantines, voluntary and mandatory felling of ash trees and a campaign to prevent the movement of firewood out of infected areas.

  • The adult leafhopper is winged, pale green, wedge-shaped insect about 1/8 inch long. The pale green to yellow nymphs, are wingless, smaller than the adults, and very quick. Consequently they can remain unnoticed until the plants show “hopperburn.” Both stages feed on the undersides of leaves. They run when disturbed, moving quickly to the opposite side of the leaf or steam like a squirrel running around a tree trunk.

  • The most common form of plant propagation is digging and dividing which is best done in early spring before new growth or in the fall before plants go dormant.  Digging and dividing is great for herbaceous plants but those plants that are considered woody ornamentals do not divide as easily with a spade. In this case we can look to the technique of rooting out softwood cuttings from the mother plant.
