Protect Your Elms from Damaging Elm Leaf Beetles

Stately and magnificent, Elms with their leafy canopies are a welcome sign that spring has arrived.

But spring also brings a threat to Elm trees, a threat that is currently advancing across Melbourne’s gardens – the Elm leaf beetle.

These pests feed on the Elm’s canopy, creating tiny holes in the leaves. They not only destroy the tree’s foliage but, if left untreated, can weaken the tree and ultimately kill it.

At Taylors, we use only state-of-the-art stem injection techniques to rid your Elms of Elm leaf beetles. This has the following advantages:

  • Cutting-edge equipment that targets the insects
  • Safest method, with least effect on the surrounding ecosystem
  • Little or no visual impact on the tree.
