Protect Your Tree
The best thing you can do to protect your trees from disease is to employ proper care and fertilization. If your trees become diseased, immediately get in touch with professionals who can apply the proper treatment.
When trees are threatened by environmental factors and become vulnerable to infection, fertilization is a vital step in tree care that may save the tree from premature death. Trees may be planted too close to a sidewalk or a house, limiting their root area. There may be one lone tree in a yard that a homeowner wants to protect. Or, environmental factors such as insects or lack of nutrients in an area, make it hard for a tree to thrive. Nourishing trees on a regular basis will encourage growth and the ability to stave off disease.
Treating Tree Diseases
Tree care is essential to fight against common tree diseases in Minnesota. Fungi, insects, and pests are common tree killers - and we can spot them a mile away. In the Minneapolis St. Paul area, Dutch Elm disease, Emerald Ash Borer disease, and Oak Wilt are among the most common diseases that can kill your trees. “Flagging”, a small part of the tree dying off, is a key indicator that your tree is diseased. When this occurs, seek safe, tested, chemical treatment options from experts who know how to apply them.
Just like humans, certain trees are susceptible to certain diseases. We know the best way to treat each disease, whether it's applying treatment to the leaves, spraying the tree, or injecting a treatment into the tree system. Our certified arborists are trained in chemical applications.
