Growing Green: Protect Your Trees from Winter Pests

Email

Many of my Spring calls concern trees damaged during the winter by voles.  Bark is chewed, tunnels abound and trees struggle to come back, if they are lucky.  Lawn damage caused by these varmints can be repaired, but trees and shrubs girdled by these gnawing rodents will not survive. By taking some simple steps now, you can protect and save many trees and shrubs next spring.
