I once saw over 200 trees destroyed by one insect in a month. Just read about a field trial of a Geneva stock where there was heavy snapping at the graft due to storm. Have seen OLD trees snap at the graft due to rootstock/scion incompatibility. Even back in the 1700's trees were sprayed. I have yet to see a totally spray free approach not have some problems over time.
