Our Paper Birch tree had a infestation and had to be trimmed today. Massive webbing strangling the high limbs. Last year another of our trees was similarly infested and had to be pruned.
The problem lies in the fact that many years ago this poor birch split in half during an ice storm and has limped on ever since. Each additional disaster like this wrecks havoc and makes it look terrible. The drought is also taking a huge toll. The ladder wasn’t high enough to get the job done so I had to scurry through the high limbs tentatively seeking out limbs thick enough and strong enough to support my weight. #TheWorldISee
