Insect & Disease Management
Professional Tree & Plant Health Care Experts
Trees are living things, and like all living things, they are susceptible to disease, infection, and wounds. Many homeowners may not be able to spot the symptoms of disease or insect infestation—it may just appear that your tree has fewer leaves than usual or that fall has “come early” for your tree. To an experienced plant healthcare specialist, however, these could be early indicators of an underlying problem.
The common ailments that affect trees include:
- Poor soil composition or pH
- Too much mulch
- Poor planting
- Too much/too little water
- Poor plant placement
All of these could invite insects and/or disease to make homes of your trees or shrubs.
That’s why it’s essential to hire a professional like Monster Tree Service. Our highly-trained plant healthcare specialists have the knowledge to spot worrisome signs of disease and prescribe a plan to deal with it effectively. Our treatments are based on updated research and most effective products and application methods that are the most environmentally friendly methods of application. We prefer to address any underlying conditions and recommend treatments that encourage overall tree health, not just spray for insects and disease every year.
How We Can Help
Despite how much people love how they look, trees are often taken for granted. Few people understand how vulnerable trees can be without taking the proper steps to care for them. Simple but effective practices like tree trimming, corrective pruning, or thinning can prevent infections from taking hold or spreading through your tree.
A few of our most common treatments include:
Additionally, fertilization can boost a tree’s overall health, giving it a healthy strength that can help minimize insect and disease pressure away. Our state-of-the-art trunk injections can protect trees from insects and parasites for years.
