Tree Insect & Disease Control

Trees provide the perfect environment for many insects while also being compromised by tree diseases. Insects and diseases can reduce the health of your tree or cause its loss. As with many detrimental issues, time is of the essence. Early identification can make all the difference. By focusing on prevention, you’ll avoid spending time and money on trying to get your tree back to life.

In order to have healthy and vibrant trees, it’s imperative to put measures in place to protect your tree, which can be a difficult task. When prevention methods aren’t properly done, such as by overwatering and excessive pruning, you can actually create an environment that favors disease and tree insects, thereby weakening the overall health of the tree. Our certified arborists are trained in this area and can help put a plan together for insect and disease management.

When our team evaluates your tree for these issues, we may take soil and foliage samples because tree health problems can develop from a lack of soil nutrients and water drainage. Furthermore, proper insect identification is important since some insects are beneficial to the tree. The best biological controls are beneficial insects, which can consume insect pests in huge numbers. However, proper identification is the first step to preserving beneficial insects.
