Gardening is so much fun and can bring joy to everyone who passes by your garden. It is also a great way to get outside and be active. If you are one who enjoys gardening and would like to learn more about it you might be interested in the Extension Master Gardener program.

So what are some of the tree problems? This year traveling across southeast Nebraska I have noticed oak trees and other deciduous trees that have dead branches and leaves scattered throughout the tree. There have been several trees with these symptoms over the years. There is a good chance this is the oak twig girdler that is causing the problem. We usually see a problem with this insect every other year. The good thing is it generally doesn’t harm the trees. The bad thing is there is really nothing you can do about it.
