Project 1

The purpose of this study is to determine the cause of the dead branches on the side of the tree which was observed. A possible cause could be the bronze birch borer parasite, because the branches on the tree exhibit severe crown dieback. Other trees in the area do not have the same damage, and if the cause is indeed the parasite, they could be at risk.
