Thriving and healthy trees are a great indicator of a functioning residential and commercial property. However, the wellbeing of your trees and shrubs can be impacted by pests and diseases that eat away at leaves, branches, and trunks, threatening the overall ecosystem of your yard or landscape. The most common solution for such problems is to spray the trees with chemicals aimed at pest control.
It is important to note that excessive and mistimed tree-spraying can harm your trees and shrubbery more than it will help them. After all, pests are not the only critters likely to make a home in your trees—there are many beneficial insects and animals that contribute to the overall well-being of the tree and the associated ecosystem. Furthermore, the spraying efforts must be done in a timely manner and in the correct environmental conditions to ensure the best outcome. As a result, tree-spraying is best left to professionals with the experience and knowledge to ensure the healthiest outcome for your yard and landscape.
Other options for pest and disease management in trees and shrubberies include:
- Tree implants use water-soluble chemicals at or inside the cambium of the tree, allowing the chemicals to then move into the tree itself and travel via the xylem sap from the trunk to the leaves.
- Tree injections allow us to inject the proper chemicals into the tree itself, without having to worry about impacting the surrounding environment and beneficial insects while managing common tree health issues. We use BioForest Green injections.
- Soil drenching allows the tree to absorb the chemicals in liquid form through the roots, and then travel through the rest of the tree, again via the xylem.
