Pine Tree Mistletoe
Mistletoe is a parasitic flower plant that attacks pines common in Evergreen. It attacks ponderosa, lodgepole, limber and piñon pines. Mistletoe sinks its roots into an infected pine and robs the tree of water and nutrients. The tree looks swollen. In dry mountain soils, mistletoe can wreak havoc and kill pine trees. However, aggressive pruning can save pine trees infected with mistletoe. Severely infected trees should be removed and replaced with pines less susceptible to mistletoe. Call DLC Arbor for treatment options.
Mountain Pine Beetle
Although the mountain pine beetle has destroyed tens of thousands of acres of trees in Colorado, most people have never seen one for themselves. This is due to the fact that this destructive insect lives most of its life underneath the bark of infested pine trees. The mountain pine beetle feeds on lodgepole, ponderosa, limber, bristlecone and Scotch and Austrian pines planted around or in Evergreen yards. Managing the pines found on acreages around mountain homes is strongly recommended. Call DLC Arbor to create a woodlot management plan to slow the spread of the Mountain Pine Beetle to your surrounding neighbors.
