The soil we grow the plants in is very similar to what is found in the Lehigh Valley (shale), so the plants are adapted to the soil as well as the weather conditions experienced in the valley. Schochary Ridge Nursery is family-owned and operated. Established in 1986 and located on a 3rd-generation family farm in New Tripoli, Pennsylvania. </FONT><BR><BR><BR></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE> <TABLE border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=208> <TBODY> <TR> <TD background=images/index_title.gif width=208> <TABLE border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width="100%"> <TBODY> <TR> <TD width="4%"><IMG src="images/blank.gif" width=8 height=20></TD> <TD class=verdana_login width="34%">OUR HOURS...</TD> <TD width="62%">&nbsp;</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE> <TABLE border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=208> <TBODY> <TR> <TD vAlign=top background=images/index_title_body.gif> <TABLE border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width="100%"> <TBODY> <TR> <TD width=9>&nbsp;</TD> <TD class=verdana_title_body vAlign=top width="96%"><BR> <P><FONT color=#ccffcc size=4 face="Arial, Arial"><FONT color=#808000>SPRING 2014 HOURS</FONT></FONT></P><FONT size=2> <P><FONT color=#00ff00>SATURDAY<br> <FONT color=#ffffff>March 29, 2014 thru Saturday April 26, 2014</font><BR><BR><FONT color=#00ff00>SATURDAYS</FONT><BR><font color=#ffffff>9AM - 4PM</P> <P><FONT color=#00ff00>SUNDAYS</FONT> - <FONT color=#FFFFFF> CLOSED</FONT><BR><BR><FONT size=2><FONT color=#00ff00>After April 26, 2014, the new growth on the trees has emerged and we can no longer safely dig plants in the nursery.

They are very hard to detect during the summer because their home is green needles and can be hard to see until fall when they stop feeding and the needles turn brown. Should you find them on a tree, they can be picked off and put in the trash or burned; however, should you miss a few, there may be a few hundred eggs in each of the bags that will attack the tree in spring. They also can balloon from a thread and be blown from one property to another. </LI></UL> <DIV align=center><IMG border=2 alt="Bag Worm" src="photos/smbagworm1.jpg" width=307 height=231></DIV> <HR> <B> <P>Rhabodocline Needle Cast</P></B> <UL type=square> <LI>This is a disease that affects the Douglas Fir trees by browning the needles and thinning the plant. It occurs when we have a very wet spring and summer and the needles remain wet. This can spread from tree to tree and yet I have noticed several plants near infected ones with a "resistance" to the disease. This requires that the Douglas Fir trees be sprayed a minimum of 3 times at 10 day intervals in the spring as the new growth emerges. </LI></UL> <DIV align=center><IMG border=2 alt="Rhabodocline Needle Cast" src="photos/rhabdocline1.JPG" width=227 height=261></DIV> <HR> <B>White Pine Weevil</B> This insect affects many evergreen trees by killing the tops of the evergreens (leaders). Plants that are affected ate White Pine, Serbian Spruce, Colorado Blue Spruce, and Norway Spruce. Spray control should be done in late March or April to control the adult female which lays eggs in the tops of the plants and as the eggs hatch, the larvae feed on the new young leaders and cause a "shepherd's crook" in the leader and kill the terminal. This distorts the shape of the tree and causes the tree to form a new leader which is not straight. <BR><BR></FONT></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE> <TABLE border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width="100%"> <TBODY> <TR></TR></TBODY></TABLE> <TABLE border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width="100%"> <TBODY> <TR> <TD bgColor=#808080 br=""> <TABLE border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width="100%"> <TBODY> <TR> <TD>&nbsp;</TD> <TD></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE> <TABLE border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0> <TBODY> <TR align=left> <TD class=verdana_body_black_small width="14%"></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE> <TABLE border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=741> <TBODY> <TR> <TD height=29 vAlign=center background=images/index_1_px_white_bottom.gif align=middle><A href="index.html">Home</A> | <A href="plant problems.html"><B>PLANT PROBLEMS</B></A> | <A href="services.html">Services</A> | <A href="sale.html">Sale Page</A> | <A href="plant.html">Plant Specials</A> | <A href="faq.html">F.
