Preventative Care Reduces Costs!

Declining tree health eventually leads to greater defoliation and eventual tree demise. All of our preventative care is based on insect or disease life cycles for optimally effective timing, rather than a seasonal cover spray (spray everything) approach. Our approach restricts spraying, preserving beneficial insects (that naturally suppress pest populations), by targeting treatments at the time when control of a particular pest or disease can be most effective. Our treatments are customized to your particular tree(s), determining which therapy would prove most beneficial and least stressful: whether biological, injection, chemical, or if site modifications or even possibly removal to protect neighboring trees is necessary. We offer an array of treatments from systemic soil insecticides, targeted spraying (beetles, borers, caterpillars, moths, Oakworms & inchworms, mites, and weevils, etc.), to trunk injections, to site amelioration. If you think you might have an insect or disease problem, then give us a call.
