Recently we have become aware of diseased maple trees in our community. Specifically the maple trees in the median on Piper Way and near the doggie poop station have been diagnosed with Gloomy Scale and Sooty Mold. Per the experts, this is unusual for Central Virginia although it is prevalent in Northern and Southern Virginia. We are in the process of treating the trees in hopes of saving them. 

Please keep an eye on your trees and contact an arborist if you see anything similar.
