Disease Control

Prevention is the Best Medicine

Why is disease control necessary?

Residential landscapes subject trees to different stresses than they experience in nature. These environmental conditions can weaken trees and make them vulnerable to disease.

All too often, disease is well established by the time a tree service
is called.

Plants suffer from infectious and non-infectious diseases. In urban settings, moisture or nutrient deficiencies are a leading factor.

Insects can also weaken trees, making them vulnerable to disease. They can even carry disease from tree to tree.

So as you can see, disease control and insect control often go hand in hand.

Since there are hundreds of potential diseases, a certified arborist should make an on-site evaluation to determine proper treatment.
