Integrated Pest and Disease Management

If your trees or shrubs have an insect or disease, our Arborists will create an integrated pest management plan. With millions of insects, diseases and fungi that attack throughout the season, we can help control these pests. For a free analysis, schedule an appointment with one of our certified Arborists.

Disease Control

Spring is the most common time for disease activity, typically March through June. In many cases you will not see the damage until it is too late to control the disease. In order to get the best control preventative treatments are recommended. To find out if your plants are at risk contact one of our certified Arborists for a diagnosis and plan.

Some common disease problems in our area are listed below.

  • Blights
  • Foliar Fungi
  • Rusts
  • Scabs
  • Mildew
  • Leaf Spotting
  • Dutch Elm Disease – Dutch Trig Injection

Insect Control

Insects are only active during certain times during the growing season (typically March through September), furthermore, we can only control them when they are susceptible to our methods. This makes the timing of our application very important and an integral part of our insect control programs. Some of the insects we see most often are listed below.

  • Borers (including Emerald Ash Borer)
  • Moths/Caterpillars
  • Scales
  • Beetles
  • Mites
  • Weevils

Growth Reduction and Fibrous Root Generation Enhancement Applications

We have a variety of tree care application programs. Our Fibrous Root Generation Enhancement care program is perfect for mature trees that have been stressed by drought, construction, soil compaction, infestation, and any root damage.

Deep Root Fertilization of trees and shrubs

We offer a 12 months slow release fertilization. We typically apply between
April and November. This is one of the easiest ways to improve the root
health of your plants. In turn, the top of the plant reaps the
rewards: you can’t have a healthy plant without healthy roots!

Dormant/Horticultural Oil Applications

These applications are done in the early spring and late fall in order to
smother over-wintering insects and their egg masses.

Herbicide Application

To control Invasive woody Species
