Dallas-Fort Worth Tree Care
Healthy, robust trees are the highlights of your residence, provide cooling shade and add value to your property. The costs associated with treating sick trees and the removal and replacement of dead trees can be exorbitant. The following arbor care treatments aid in keeping the health of your trees protected.
- TREE HEALTH ASSESSMENT
By analyzing the health status of your tree, our certified arborist is able to make certain the tree’s immunity to disease is strong and that the tree receives adequate nutrients.
- DEEP ROOT FERTILIZATION
The tree’s required nutrients and oxygen are injected directly into the root zone. This ensures the tree’s health is robust and aerates compacted soil.
- ROOT PRUNING
Roots can wrap around trees that are planted in confined spaces, resulting in girdled roots that damage the tree. Root pruning eliminates this problem and prevents stunted growth.
- TREE GROWTH REGULATORS
Trees often grow taller than their roots can adequately support. Tree growth regulators increase root density, strengthening the tree and boosting its immunity to disease.
- SICK TREES
Maintaining the health of your trees is the best preventative measure regarding battling serious tree ailments. Sick trees recover the quickest when early treatment is administered.
- TREE PESTS AND DISEASE
Our tree experts are highly familiar with the numerous insect pests and tree diseases common throughout our area. We will administer whatever treatment is determined necessary to battle and eliminate these bothersome issues.
Deep Root Fertilization
Homes in urban and suburban neighborhoods often have yards with compacted soil from construction activities and soil lacking in proper nutrients. With this key treatment, an arbor care expert injects the tree’s required nutrients directly into its root zone. Oxygen is injected to eliminate soil compaction. Trees that receive this treatment annually have strong root systems, optimum health and are 95% less likely to develop tree diseases.
Tree Disease Treatment
Although strong, healthful trees have natural immunity against disease, when a tree becomes stressed and weak it is then more vulnerable to disease. Stress can be caused by many factors such as insufficient light, poor soil quality or drought conditions. There are many common tree diseases that our tree care doctors and certified arborists frequently encounter.
- Seiridium Canker Leyland cypress and other fire varieties are the targets of this serious pathogen that causes branches to turn brown randomly amongst green branches within the same tree.
- Sudden Oak Death This water mold pathogen spreads rapidly via winds and splashing rain. Oak trees die quickly when infected with sudden oak death.
- Bacterial Slime Flux This disease infects tree wounds, creating a rancid- smelling liquid that seeps down the tree’s bark and kills grass and plants at the tree’s baseline.
- Ganoderma Considered the deadliest fungal tree disease, its also known as heart rot because it destroys the tree from the inside out. A seriously infected tree can topple over and endanger life and property.
- Bacterial Leaf Scorch Dried brown edges and burnt-looking areas on leaves are caused by this destructed nemesis. Learn the causes of Bacterial Leaf Scorch.
- Chlorosis Frequently due to iron-deficient soil, this disease causes leaves to turn pale yellow due to the lack of chlorophyll. Learn more about cause/treatment of Chlorosis.
- Hypoxylon Canker Manifesting during hot weather, this serious fungal pathogen targets oaks and shade tree varieties that have been subjected to drought-like conditions and suffered stress.
- Leaf Spot Unsightly black spots covering foliage are caused by many bacterial and fungal pathogens.
- Fire Blight Branch tips that turn black and develop hooked ends are the result of infection by this fungal disease that targets pome fruit trees.
Oak Wilt Treatment
This quick-spreading deadly fungal pathogen has killed millions of oak trees in Texas alone. Its tree of choice is the lofty Shumard red oak, although all oak varieties are susceptible to this tree assailant. This disease disables the tree’s vascular system and infected oaks can die within six months. Contact a doctor that treats sick trees immediately if you observe you have a declining tree or desire a tree and plant health care plan to prevent oak wilt from invading your residential grounds.
Insect infestations are not only an irritating eyesore, but they can cause premature defoliation, dead branches, declining trees, and dead trees. Many insects reproduce swiftly and can eventually destroy the trees and plants they infest if treatment is not applied. Our tree doctors and certified arborists treat many of the common insect pests that are prevalent throughout our area.
These tiny pests reproduce at an alarming rate and siphon nutritional fluids from foliage and plant leaves.
- BAG WORMS
Primarily targeting fir tree varieties, these deceptive worms form small cones laced with leaves and bark around them and severely weaken the infested tree.
- WOOD BORERS
Larvae enter through the tree’s bark and then eat elaborate maze-like tunnels throughout the tree’s core wood.
- LACE BUGS
Emerging in spring, these 1/4″ long-winged insects cause unsightly damage to ash, willow and oak trees as well as many popular tree varieties.
These worms spin white webbed bags throughout tree branches to hide within and protect themselves while they eat tree foliage.
- EMERALD ASH BORER
Holes in the tree’s bark and thinning foliage are indicative of this bright green beetle that infests only ash trees and destroys the tree’s vascular system.
