The Edible Figs Trees At UKM Bangi Are all Dying !!!

(A very sick Figs Tree Attacked by Parasitic coint leaves crawlers) 

(It Used To Be)

I was on my way to Denkil and passed these edible figs trees inside UKM Bangi fencing.

I was shocked with that those healthy trees are now very sick and dying.

One was already taken down by the road builders and the other two are on drips.

Have a look at the pictures taken and judge for your self.

It used to be three healthy trees and now all the threes are dying (one already dead).

A very sad thing to happen and I parked my car beside the road to take a good look at the two still alive trees.

The bigger one was under severe attack from a parasitic coin leaves crawlers.

(The culprit might be these coin leaves crawler)

The coin leaves crawlers seems to grip onto the tree branches and will suck the tree nuitrients until the branch dies of.

So one by one the branches will die and rot away while the coin leave crawler will keep attacking those branches that are still alive.

If these crawlers are not remove the whole tree will be dead.  More like your lungs being attacked by cancer.

Very sad while the other partially alive tree looks like the original plant was long dead but from the base stem there is a new branch from it.

It was too closed to a new drain concrete and I think during digging it branches were affected.

The third, used to be the biggest and the healthiest, now is down and rotting away.

The place where she used to grow are now all covered with tall grasses.

It was unfortunate that it was too closed to the road construction.

Now the two still alive need some emergency treatment.

I am thinking of air layered those branches that are healthy and hopefully can transplant to another location.

Those who would like to have one air layered branch please call me at 017 7551318.
