Austin Stippler Management Specialists

Have you noticed leaves that appear to be bronzed or bleached on your trees? Have you found unexplained dark tar on tree limbs? If so, your tree may be affected by stipplers. Stipplers feed on the underside of leaves, causing them to rot and fall. These pests cause trees a great deal of stress and damage. The harm caused by stipplers combined with air pollution and unhealthy soil that trees face in cities can be enough to greatly compromise your trees’ health. If you think your trees may be affected by stipplers, be sure to call Hamlin Tree Care, Inc at (512) 484-0252. Our certified Austin stippler management specialists can provide a thorough assessment of the problem and manage the stipplers without damaging your trees in the process.

Do I Need a Tree Care Specialist?

Hiring a qualified and experienced team of tree specialists is important for a number of reasons. Without experience, tree pruning, tree removal, and pest management can be very dangerous. Our specialists are certified arborists with years of expertise in treating damaged trees. Furthermore, our team has extensive knowledge of Austin’s trees, insects, and soil. We remove pests and prune trees carefully to do as little damage to your tree as possible. Without this knowledge about the proper way to tackle a problem, it is easy to end up causing more health problems for your trees in the long run. Safety and experience aside, our service works so that your trees can be healed without disrupting your schedule. No need to waste a weekend in the front yard; Hamlin Tree Care, Inc has you covered.

What Are Stipplers?

Stipplers are a common tree pest. Throughout central Texas, there are two main types of stipplers. The first is the lace bug, which can be found on Sycamore, Hackberry, Oak, and Walnut trees. These can be identified by their flat, lacy wings. They leave behind dark tar excrement on trees while feeding.

The second type of stippler is the spider mite, which is very small and hard to spot. If you notice telltale webbing in the small branches and leaves of your tree, it may be evidence of their activity. Spider mites most commonly feed on Oaks, Italian Cyprus, and Arborvitae trees, but they can infect other trees as well.

Trees affected by stipplers will often have bronzed or bleached leaves with small holes in them. Stippler damage causes leaves to fall and results in trees that are unable to absorb a healthy amount of sunlight. In the long run, this causes stunted growth in trees and can greatly reduce your tree’s lifespan. Combine the effects of stipplers with other stresses present in cities, and your tree could face life-threatening damage. If you see these critters crawling around on your trees, be sure to contact Hamlin Tree Care, Inc immediately to prevent further damage.
