    Possible Mite Damage?

    Rhabdocline or Swiss Needlecast are the most common on Abies. Pretty much the same thing as Rhizo Needlecast on Spruce.

    EAB treatment pricing

    I used to charge by the ml and am now charging $15 per inch for Em Ben injections. Works out to be a little higher on the smaller trees and a little lower on the bigger trees price wise.

    Hey Look at My Crud...

    Back at that property today. There’s little worms almost like nematodes living in the sooty mold. Should have got a pic but didn’t. It gets weirder and weirder....

    ISA Arborist certification

    First step is buy the study guide. Second step is read it. Third step is to take the test and pass it. It’s terribly easy and a good read through the guide over the weekend and you’ll pass with flying colors. Then come the CEU’s. And the money you spend on them.......

    Possible Mite Damage?

    Swiss Needlecast and Rhabdocline needlecast are a big problem with Dough Fir but this tree is not presenting like either of them. I like the water/possible chlorine line the op is going down. Phytophthora maybe?

    Hey Look at My Crud...

    Never seen wetwood produce sooty mold like that though. Usually the sugars have fermented. Weird.

    Can you tell if this is needle cast from this picture?

    Needle cast will generally have purple needles with spores running along the stomata on the underside of the needle. Check for swollen black canker near the branch collars, could also be cytospora.
