When is the last time you saw your tree doctor? It's time for a tree check-up!
Pests, Diseases, Disorders... Oh' My!
Do you ever wonder what is causing holes in the leaves of your rose bushes or why your ash tree has so few leaves compared to last year? There are hundreds of insects and diseases that plague your landscape. Today, there is an increasing threat of invasive species from other parts of the globe. Sadly, our native trees lack natural resistance which puts them at risk. How do you keep up with these concerns when you have your own life to run? Knowing how to properly control pests requires in-depth knowledge of a pest's habits and the accepted measures used to control them. Some common services we provide include:
Sampling, diagnosis, and evaluation of the problem.
Once a positive diagnosis has been made we develop a plan to protect your tree. We utilize a multi-facited approach called Integrated Pest Management which is just a fancy term for managing pests without unnecesarily throwing a bunch of chemicals at them. Sometimes as in the case of scale infested hollies and yews, proper thinning is all that is needed to prevent ugly, damaging populations.
If you suspect you have a pest problem contact us today. We love pictures, so send us some pics of the the symptoms or the suspect itself.
If a pesticide application is necessary we use products that are safe for your family, pets, and the environment.
Arborjet trunk-injection represents the new "Green" way to administer pesticides safely. Pesticides, fungicides or nutrients can be injected directly into your tree's vascular system where its needed.
Fetilization and deep root feeding is used to reduce environmental stress in trees and increase plant vigor.
