    What is this all over my Chinese Elm?

    This kinda just appeared over the past couple days and I have no idea what this is but it’s all over my Chinese Elm. We’ve been getting a lot of rain so I’d be surprised if it’s aphids, but looks similar.

    White Tips on Shimpaku Juniper

    This is my first year seeing this on my juniper, but I’m still fairly new to all of this and constantly learning. I have a feeling these are either flowers forming or some sort of insect damage from either spider mites, aphids, or something of the like eating new growth as it emerges. I could...

    Little Bug that I can’t identify

    Anyone know what this is? Found them all on a dying juniper in my garden about two weeks ago and sprayed some neem oil. Then two days ago a potted up a Dawn redwood sapling that I just got and when I went out today I saw the same bugs so I snapped a pic real quick. Are they pests or are they...

    Japanese Pagoda Holly Fungus/Pest ID

    I picked up this little pagoda Japanese holly at a small local nursery while we were up in North Carolina. They’re very hard to find locally back at home and online they are small sticks in a pot for $30+. I haven’t had the chance to do anything with him yet and he’s just been chillin on the...

    Visual Books that Show Pest/Fungal Issues with Trees

    Curious if anyone has recommendations on books that show common pests/fungal issues based on tree species, hopefully with visual guides. The issue I’m thinking is the sheer amount of volume of stuff that would hold. I imagine it may have to be region specific, so if it’s just native N. American...

    Cedar Elm - Pest/Fungal Issue?

    Started noticing some browning on my cedar elm. Not sure if it’s fungal or pest related. It’s still been fairly warm here and feels a little early for color change. Highs in the mid 80s, lows in mid 50s. I treated it with Bayer Rose and Flower 3 in 1 about a week ago. I’m wondering if that only...

    Juniper Help Sick

    I need some help identifying what’s going on with my juniper’s. I had organic soil and changed to akadama but it looks like I have a pest on them but I can’t identify to be able to treat if I even still can. It looks like maybe scale? Any thoughts?

    Newer to Pine and Just Wanted to Check

    I just wanted to make sure this wasn't a fungal or pest problem and just sap. I'm still fairly new to pines so wanna be sure.

    White Uniform Dotting on Ficus Leaves

    Hadn't noticed this before, but it's only on one ficus. One of those hardware store ginseng ficus graft trees that I got when I was first starting the hobby. Anyway, the other day I noticed these white uniform dots all along the leaves. Any idea what this might be?

    Pest on Crepe Myrtle

    Trying to get an ID on what this might be on a crepe myrtle I have. I don't see them on any other trees, but I'm gonna separate him and probably spray him down with some insecticidal soap and Neem oil unless there's something better you guys recommend.

    ID on What Might Be Going on Crepe Myrtle?

    Having a pest issue on several trees similar to the picture. This is my first summer and Texas can be difficult with pests I'm told, especially aphids. Any idea what this might be and best course of action to deal with it?
