Thank you for providing details re the number of branches examined. Be careful of those white lines, they can be found on other trees.


You made great observations. Thank you for working on tracking the Wooly Adelgid.

Nice work soilsavages!

You have three great pieces of evidence and I am sure happy you didn't find wooly adelgid. Keep looking and keep up the great work.

I love the name
