Did you know trees, plants and shrubs imported into the United States can have harmful hitchhikers, such as beetles buried in the wood of a sapling, or tiny mites on the leaves of a flowering plant. Learn more about how you can help prevent the spread of invasive insects and diseases at http://www.plantsmart.org/index.php.
