Birch Leaf Miner
Birch Leaf Miner(BLM) is one of the most wide spread insects on the island. BLM feeds on the inner leaf tissue. Although a season or two of defoliation may not kill the tree, continuous annual defoliation will weaken the tree to a point that other pests and diseases can infect the tree. Any of these situations will reduce the trees life considerably.

The first signs of infestation is that the center of the leaves appear to be lighter green than on the edges. As the leaf miner continues eating, brown sections become very apparent. Damage occurs usually in June. A healthy tree is your best defense against BLM. Call Laird Tree Care for your personal Plant Health Care Program or at the first signs of a discolored leaf to minimize damage to your Birch tree.
