Resident Alert: Willow Oaks Scale Treatment
It is of the utmost importance that you have your Willow Oaks treated for Lecanium scale! We have a scale infection of our Willow Oak Trees throughout our neighborhood.
Scale is a parasite that produces small dark ladybug-like nodules on the tree branches. It saps and kills the new-growth leaves, darkening mail boxes and driveways with its residual mold droppings and residue. Scale is highly infectious and will spread from tree to tree if left untreated and can re-infect trees that have been treated. Eventually the parasite will kill the tree. Trees need to be treated in the fall or early spring when the parasite is dormant and not crawling.
The Willow Oak trees are foundation trees and it is the Home Owner’s Responsibility to replace the tree with a substantial Willow Oak if the tree dies. The removal of the dead tree and replacement of a 5-to-6 Ft. Willow Oak would cost approximately $500.00 or more. Many of your neighbors have already had their trees treated. So please be responsible and have your trees treated.
Here are several options for treatment:
- Do it yourself- Bayer Advanced 128 –oz. 12 month Tree & Shrub Protect & Feed Gal Concentrate Liquid- $ 69.79 sold at Lowes
- Scotts Lawn Care- Call Rodney at 513-615-5353 (cell), $50.00/ tree
