I've been thinking about trees recently (and not just because I work for TreeHugger). A magnificent magnolia on my property has become diseased this summer, infected with a white scale that covers the underside of every branch. Apparently, this scale houses an insect that feeds on the tree's sap and leaks honeydew onto the ground below.
