Christmas Tree Pest Manual

The newly published third edition of the Christmas Tree Pest Manual is now available. The first edition was published in 1983 and soon became the go-to guide for insects and mites that attack conifers in the Midwestern and northeastern U.S. It also addresses diseases and environmental problems. The new third edition is likely to continue that excellence.

Although its title is addresses Christmas trees, it is a tremendous resource for nurseries, arborists, landscapers, and any professional who grows or maintains pines, spruces, and firs. It is profusely illustrated with color photos and useful graphs. The pest information is easy to read and very informative.

To receive a printed copy of this USDA publication, send your mailing address to  Doreen Deutsch or call 651-649-5244. It is also available as a pdf on the Internet. (Phil Nixon)
