Question: Are hackberry trees resistant to Japanese beetles? Eileen Ostermeier Midland, OH
Answer: As far as I know, the common hackberry shouldn't have many problems woth Japanese beetles. It's in a different family from the plums, grapes and roses that tend to be very attractive to the beetles. Of course, if there are enough beetles around and not enough to eat, they'll go after anything..
