The DNR Forest Health team recently updated its factsheet on common forms of abiotic (non-living, chemical and environmental) damage to trees in Wisconsin.
The factsheet provides a brief overview of the following topics:
- Storm damage (wind, lightning, hail)
- Winter damage (ice and heavy snow, frost, sunscald, salt spray, winter desiccation)
- Soil (compaction, improper pH and nutrient deficiencies)
- Pesticides (improper use, drift)
