We concur.  Unfortunately, both the Asian scale and citrus canker have invaded central Florida; it remains far worse in south Florida as we understand from our inspector.  We’ve not heard of the physical abuse but see on the news regularly that another neighborhood has been notified and they are scheduling removal with residents. That does not mean it does not happen; we’ve just not heard of it until reading in Aroid-l.


You can, with persistent usage of Volk oil or bifenthrin (Talstar) will treat the cycads; there is no apparent ‘treatment’ other than removal for the tress with citrus canker…Christian

Wait a minute! I'm no fan of government powers but things don't operate quite as depicted in

that E-mail. First, the state constitution gives the Department of Agriculture and its agents the right of trespass and when denied access an official warrant is served. Compensation is awarded ($100 for 1st tree or replacement with some plant other than citrus). Because there is no way to prove a negative all trees within a proscribed area are considered suspect and for the safety of other citrus are removed. I know of no instances of any state worker being involved in any physical altercations with property owners and there are laws to remedy abuse of this nature. One essential roll of government is to protect the health of its citizens and threats to economic structures. Citrus canker is a real threat to Florida's second largest industry and the state is responding in a sensible and legal manner.
