What is a Tree Disease?
Trees are very much like humans and animals in the fact that they can be susceptible to disease. There are many factors that can lead to a diseased tree to include planting location, weather, soil conditions, and insect carriers. Most tree diseases will not lead to tree mortality but if not treated can lead to added stress in the tree.
What are the Tree Diseases most common to our landscaped and native trees?
Even though some of the tree diseases we identify in our landscaped trees will not ultimately lead to tree mortality we take a more aggressive approach to help provide long term health and vigor for your trees. We treat every tree disease on a case by case basis as there are multiple treatment options for each disease. We continually monitor the trees health as well as implement good cultural practices to include proper fertility, soil quality, and supplemental watering to help keep disease to a minimum. In addition to consistent monitoring and applying good cultural practices we provide a range of treatment options to help fight against any type of tree disease.
