Purple Beech Trees Have White Bugs And Brown Shriveled Leaves
Question From: Romulus, Michigan, United States
Q: I have 2 purple beech trees. The top layer of leaves has a sprinkling of white bugs on the under side of the leaves. A sprinkling of brown shreveled leaves and a new layer of green leaves on the bottom layer. Any ideas as to my problem. Thanks for responding.
Could be several. After last year's heat and drought trees are badly stressed. I suggest you have an onsite inspection from a local certified arborist. A mis-diagnosis could cost you your trees. Purple beeches are treasures. Get them a checkup from a trained tree doctor. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
