Many insect borers, pruners, and girdlers attack, damage, and kill pecan and hickory trees. By using the information contained in this publication, resource managers, landowners, and other interested people should be better able to identify and manage these pests. Yellow-bellied sapsuckers are also discussed because damage caused by these birds is often confused with that of insect borers. Class, order, and family names of these pests are listed in the Appendix as additional information for the reader.
