  1. Sorry for category, didnt know where to post. I was hanging tree stands and trimming some branches and found this. The branch is covered in snowlike "things". Up close they have a little black center dot and they are wiggling. Really strange. [​IMG]

  2. Beech blight aphids Grylloprociphilus imbricator. They feed on the sap of beech trees.

  13. There is also another disease that is endangering beech trees.

    "Pogacnik fears that within 10 years Northeast Ohio will have no beech tress left.
    Beech Leaf Disease has spread as far south as Stark County already but it’s moved particularly far east, into Pennsylvania, almost to New York State. That leads to speculation it’s carried by insects that get blown in the wind."
