Common Diseases and Pests

Trees generally manifest common symptoms when they have been overtaken by a disease or insect predators. Wilted leaves or noticeable early leaf loss are cause for alert. 

  • Does it have an overall thinning appearance to its foliage and branches? 
  • Does the tree have a weak, sick appearance? 

Common problems that many people have with their trees include:

  • TREE HEALTH DIAGNOSIS 
    The tree is thoroughly examined by an ISA certified arborist to determine if the tree’s health is weakened and establish the essential nutrients the tree requires to maintain robust health and vitality.
  • DEEP ROOT FERTILIZATION 
    The specific minerals and nutrients the tree is in need of are injected directly into its root system.  This increases the tree’s immunity to diseases.
  • ROOT PRUNING 
    Tree roots can begin curling when trees are planted in containers or small spaces. Root pruning eliminates this problem and prevents girdled roots from damaging the tree and stunting its growth.
  • SICK TREES 
    Ailing trees are most apt to recover successfully when treatment is administered in the early stages of disease infection. This prevents the disease from progressing and possibly destroying the tree.
  • TREE PEST AND DISEASES 
    Maintaining the health of your trees is always the best defense against tree diseases and insect infestations.  Administering treatment in the beginning will halt disease and destruction from insect infestation.
  • TREE GROWTH REGULATORS 
    Mature and fast-growing trees need strong roots to support their size.  This treatment increases root density and greatly boosts its disease resistance.

Deep Root Fertilization

Deep root fertilization ensures the tree receives the specific nutrients that it requires to maintain a hearty root structure and keep its health robust.  A healthy tree with a strong immune system wards off unwanted diseases and pests!
