Emerald Ash Borer

WIND AND COLD WEATHER can lead to winter burn, browning and leaf drop. To reduce the moisture loss from your evergreens, our GREENWatch program recommends an anti-desiccant treatment right now on species such as boxwoods, hollies, laurels, magnolias and rhododendrons. This application will close pores to withstand the winter and will slowly wear away for them to reopen in the spring.
