Why proactive tree pest control and management is a must!
We all enjoy trees for the shade, flowers, colorful foliage and fruit that they provide. But, when it comes to caring for trees, a solid understanding of arboricultural science and safety comes in handy because maintaining healthy trees is one of the primary defenses against pests and other problems.
Minor vs. Major Problems
The majority of our landscape and tree problems are minor – certain insects and disease problems always threaten plant health and often, no action is needed. But trees under stress from drought, poor soil, improper pruning and pollution tend to be more susceptible to damage from insects and disease. If pest problems become severe, the result could be serious diseases and disorders that can impact the vitality and growth of your trees. The resulting tree loss could diminish the value of your landscape.
Fungal problems, bacterial diseases, insects and fruit control vary from region to region. Trained tree care professionals and ISA certified arborists understand the needs of each tree, their unique characteristics and the role they play in your landscape. Tree care professionals can help property owners become aware of the types of problems that may plague their favorite trees and how to proactively treat them.
Fruit Tree Spraying
Fruit-bearing trees include those that produce edible fruit, such as olive, and those that produce ornamental fruit including the pods from sycamores and liquid ambers. Both types can generate more problems than benefits; messy fruits and seed pods can create potential liability for safety and are a difficult mess to clean. Using properly timed fruit-control sprays will greatly reduce the problems and hazards caused by fruit drop in your landscape, sidewalks and parking lots.
Urban trees and palms can be deprived of necessary nutrients that occur naturally in forested areas. To increase vigor and prolong life, many urban trees require supplemental nourishment. A custom fertilizer and soil amendment program can be useful for trees or palms where deficiencies are difficult to control and has the added benefit of stimulating new growth and regenerating tissue damaged by stresses of all kinds.
