Insect infestations of shade trees present complex problems. These infestations are best prevented and controlled when we carefully consider all of the factors involved. These factors include climate or weather, the conditions under which the trees were grown and are growing, and many features of insect behavior. Today, with the steady improvement in the work of the tree expert, as regards both knowledge and technic, it is important for members of this profession to have a broad view of their problems. They should strive toward the prevention of tree-insect troubles as well as their control and endeavor to aid in the accumulation of information on shade-tree insects that will be available to all. The means for this accumulation of data lie in the full study of all phases of every problem and the recording of the information thus obtained.
