Trees and Shrubs:
Continue to scout for weed, insect and disease problems. Only treat problems that are causing significant damage. During hot periods aphids, scale insects, and mites populate rapidly. Remember that the presence of insects does not necessarily indicate a need to spray. Provide water for newly planted trees and shrubs as needed. Established plantings should be watered if season has been dry. Use at least one inch of water per week in one application.
An additional application of pre-emergence herbicide in planting beds will extend weed control. Weed beds as needed.
