The Polyphagous Shot Hole Borer (Euwallacea sp) is an invasive beetle that attacks dozens of common natives and landscape trees.

FD is caused by Fusarium Euwallacea, a fungus that disrupts the transportation of water and nutrients in the tree, therefore causing the tree to die from the tip of its leaves or roots backwards.
