Tree infestation with white sticky growth
I have a white sticky growth on my young Dogwood tree and wondered if it is going to damage the tree and if so how can I remove it. I have tried a spray and scraping it off but very difficult
west central Scotland
The pic isn't good enough, but it looks like scale insects.
If you get them quick enough, you can usually scrape/scrub them off with a brush, but if that'snot possible, you can dab them with meths on a cotton bud.
It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
Thanks, I have some meths so I will give it a go
