Walk and Talk: What’s Wrong With My Tree?

Poulsbo Tree Board members and Bess Bronstein, ISA Certified Arborist. Why is your tree’s foliage turning red in July? And what are those bugs coating the leaves and stems? Why does it look like the tree foliage is wilting? Learn how to examine trees for signs to help identify problems due to insects and diseases versus those caused by poor plant management or climate issues. We will meet in Poulsbo, site to be announced.
