In addition to EAB, there are other potential disorders to be mindful of as it pertains to your trees and shrubs:

Magnolia Scale

Outbreaks are more common during July and August. Symptoms include white, pink-orange or brown bumps on the branches that later leave behind a chalky substance that has the potential to kill or severely disfigure magnolias.


This disorder changes tree leaf color to yellow or light green and happens when a tree is not manufacturing enough chlorophyll because of a nutrient deficiency. Heavy clay soil, compacted soil and high pH soil are some of the contributing factors.

Verticillium Wilt

This fungal disease is a soil-borne pathogen that infects tree and plant tissue below ground, causing water vessels to become blocked. The first sign of infection? When individual branches wilt and die.
