Cicadas are gone, but they left tree scars!

As the cicadas retreat, you might start noticing the aftermath of their presence. One clear sign of cicada damage is “flagging,” where young branch tips die off, marked by the slits where female cicadas laid their eggs. While this damage can kill small branch tips, rest assured that your plants are likely to recover in the long run. For younger trees, you can prune out any affected or dead branch tips.
