Arborist Care Demistified- Somewhat!

Now you have a new yard- sipping tea on the patio looking at your beautiful trees, gorgeous flowers backed by vibrant shrubs- but what’s this!  Holes in my leaves?  And this one over here is bronzing  with spider webs!  Oh wait! Why is the top of my evergreen dying?  Don’t panic!  These are all treatable and preventable.

Your new yard needs some time to get use to it’s new life.  The stress of planting can last up to 5 years depending on the plant, size and location.  We recommend having an arborist to assess your property if you have a large investment in trees and shrubs.

We can get an estimate for you that will include many of the following treatment for corresponding pests. They will use timing and proper identification as a key in successfully stopping or preventing pest damage.
