Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum and I'm looking forward to learning from you're all and contributing as much as possible to this great forum.
I was wondering if anyone knows if cankerworms defoliate Acer palmatum Ã¢â‚¬ËœBloodgoodÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and Prunus yeodonis Ã¢â‚¬ËœYoshinoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ trees?
The reason for my concern is that we just built a house on a lot that has several mature Norway maples around the perimeter of the property and they are badly eaten by cankerworms this year.
I would love to plant an Acer palmatum Ã¢â‚¬ËœBloodgoodÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and a Prunus yeodonis Ã¢â‚¬ËœYoshinoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, but I don't know what to do about our cankerworm problem.
Are these trees on their menu, if so, is there any natural enemies or chemical control I should look into?
