This winter has proven to be harsh on many plants, but especially so on Sweet Gum Trees. While most plants might have some leaf burn or browning or some dieback, it appears the Sweet Gum trees may have taken a severe hit. So far across the state, it's being noted by various Extension Educators that those trees are not coming out of dormancy.
Do you need to get your soil tested for nutrient levels or potential contaminates? There are a variety of resources out there and opportunities to get this done.
It has been reported that there are confirmed hits of Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) in Lake County. This insect ONLY affects ash trees, so all other species are safe. There are preventative treatments. If your tree is already affected, there are options to consider. If the tree's health has already started declining, it may be too late for treatment.
