How to Manage Pests
Pests in Gardens and Landscapes
The bark of young tree trunks and exposed limbs on older trees may be sensitive to sunburn. Sunburned
bark is cracked, somewhat sunken, and is susceptible to attack by wood borers and wood-rot fungi.
Use tree wrap or paint trunks of young trees with whitewash or a white, interior water-based paint to
protect them against sunburn.
