Consultation

As a full­service tree company led by certified arborists, we provide a thorough and accurate diagnosis of any health issues affecting your trees. We take the time to walk through your yard and discuss our findings with you, tree by tree.

After identifying any diseases or pests affecting your trees, we provide you with a Tree Health Assessment report.

This report, tailored specifically to your yard, summarizes:

  • Issues affecting each tree

Your Tree Health Assessment is like a prescription from the doctor, since it is expert advice from a certified arborist.

Treatment

In our experience, there are three common ways to improve tree health. See below for a comparison of current technologies available on the market.

Direct­inject treatments are specialized products used by certified applicators. These products are introduced to the tree’s sap system via a tiny hole drilled in the trunk. Once the treatment is installed, your yard is safe to enjoy ­ no need to wait! Direct injection affects the entire tree for 1­ – 3 years. A single application will remedy most common health concerns.

Typical sprays do not address the root cause of diseases and infestations, since:

  • sprays require external application
  • sprays only contact a small portion of the tree, even with repeat applications

Imagine trying to spray every leaf and branch of an 80ft oak tree! Insects and disease can thrive in each spot that a spray misses.

Since sprays can be washed off by rainwater and snow, applicators will prescribe multiple treatments. Costs and hassle can add up over time. Keep in mind that commercial spray pesticides are toxic products, often harmful to people and animals. That’s why they aren’t available for off­the­shelf purchase. Would you want toxic chemicals sprayed all over your yard? Or would you prefer precise application contained within the tree?

There are certain products, such as soap sprays, available for public purchase. While these sprays are less toxic, they usually fail to address tree health issues. In our experience, successful treatments are a customized mix designed by a certified arborist and applicator. If the wrong type of product is used (e.g. if an insecticide is used to treat fungus) the problem will only get worse.
