Unfortunately, pests and diseases can attack and create havoc on your trees. It’s important to diagnose a tree pest or tree disease problem correctly before attempting any form of treatment. Although specific trees tend to have specific pests and diseases that assault them, many of these problems affect a variety of species. Effective treatment targets particular pests detected on the specific species affected by our team of certified tree arborists.

Beneficial predators keep a pest in check and must have a minimum level of that pest available in order to maintain its food supply. If the pest is completely eradicated, the predators disappear for lack of food. Often the pest will come back in much higher levels because their natural predators are no longer present. So, proper pest removal must be done by an a tree care expert.
Ultimately, the goal with disease and pest control is to know the proper methods and treatments available without threatening the health and structure of the tree. To have your tree’s condition diagnosed by a certified arborist, contact Growing Earth today.
