While working on helping the beauty and health of the trees over seven weeks, we noticed a considerable amount of trees stressed from beetles. I found one of the beetles and gave it to Jan. Here is an article from Arborage Magazine that explains the current problem. Our estimation is that 25% of the cedar trees are infected. Due to the amount of time the beetles have had to spread, treatment may be futile and removal of all infected trees may be best solution. Doing nothing will allow the beetle to continue to spread.
