Host Richard Hentschel discusses several updates to spring disease spread and insects that are ahead of schedule. Cedar Apple Rust is done putting spores into the air. Pine sawfly and other sawfly larvae are out and have been feeding. Another newer insect is the Viburnum Leaf Beetle. Also noted has been the thinner foliage on certain maples.
