    I have a weeping cherry tree that has been dying over the past month from a peach borer infestation. I was planning to take the tree down but the customer wants to wait until the winter because he wants to hang christmas lights from the tree this year.

    Is the borer infestation going to spread to the surrounding trees during this time of the year?

    My location is south central Pennsylvania, more specifically Lancaster county.

    If the tree must be taken down... say, this week, am I still at risk of having another infestation in the surrounding trees?:confused:

    Fill me in here please...Thx
