Cicadas and Newly Planted Trees

last month
last modified: last month

The news is sounding the alarm about the coming cicada-mageddon and the damage they do to small trees. The three lines of defense discussed are netting the tree, wrapping the trunk with sticky material or wrapping the trunk with slippery material.

I just planted several japanese maples, a redbud and two tri-color beech last year. The media is also saying to avoid planting trees within a few years of a cicada emergence (yeah sure).

Any thoughts or experience?
