Product questions

    Our once wooded property has been decimated by the ash borer. We have cut down almost 70 trees in the last two years. We are also seeing problems now with our blue spruce trees. We are spraying for bag worms and mites because we have diagnosed those problems but they continue to decline. We are now hearing about a fungus that is infecting them. We would like to start replanting but since we are in our 60"s we would like to replace with varieties that are fast growing and as disease free as possible. What do you suggest? We live in OHIO zone 6. Thank you for any suggestions.

    Hello Jenny, we are sorry to hear about your wooded property, we hear this regularly, and have experienced the destruction of the Ash Borer in our area as well. The key when replanting is diversity. Without it, when the next unforeseen pest or disease comes to your area, all will be lost. We recommend planting many different varieties so that if one variety is affected, it will only be a small percentage of your trees. Some good alternatives to the Blue Spruce for your area would be White Spruce, White Pine, Norway Spruce and Concolor Fir. Good alternatives for your other trees would be Quaking Aspen, Paper Birch, Red Maple, Silver Maple and American Sycamore. There are many others that would grow in your area, but these would be the fastest growing hardwoods. If you have any other questions, please drop us an email to [email protected] or call us at 800-367-9254. Thanks, CRN
