Tree News

fall-webworm
- Over the past week we have received an increase in calls to the Urban Forest Management Division from residents who are concerned about large webby tents in tree branches. These webs are caused by fall webworm.
orange-striped-oakworm
- This caterpillar is black and hairless with eight narrow orange or yellow stripes on its back. It is among the caterpillar look-a-likes that are common to Fairfax County, often mistaken for the gypsy moth, and is a native pest that usually does not pose a threat to trees in Fairfax County.
Asian longhorned beetle
- Staff of the Urban Forest Management Division (UFMD) would like residents to keep an eye out for the Asian longhorned beetle (ALB) in their yards and when visiting county or state parks. Looking for ALB could be a fun game to be played with children who have been staying home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
