White pine weevil
Looking for advice. Last week I had to remove and destroy three different terminal leaders as well as their lateral shoots on my white pines because of recent white pine weevil infestation. One of the trees in question had also been attacked two years ago but had since then nicely developed two competing terminal leaders. The two of those leaders are now both gone and I was wondering where things are headed with that tree. The third terminal leader attacked was on a totally different pine. My problem is that these trees were too tall for me to reach the cut-off area without the use of a pole saw/pruner. I wasn't able to make the cuts neatly right down to the whorl and there are 1 to 2 inch stubs remaining where the old leaders were. Is this going to cause me any future problems? Thank you.
