Street Trees – Black Sooty Mould August 2020

You may have noticed that some of the street trees (Tuckeroo) in the estate have developed a black sooty mould.

Sooty mould grows on the sugar secretion from aphids and scale.

This issue has been reported to MBRC and a treatment program will commence in August to attend to the matter.

Firstly the pest will be treated and then a follow up with eco oil will break down the mould cover.
