Michael came out to evaluate some trees I had with a questionable fungus on them, and ultimately the course of action was removal for a select few. He got me an estimate for the removal within a matter of days. They had the most competitive prices out of the other estimates I got. Michael is a very knowledgeable Arborist and you can tell he is passionate about his work. He wasn't pushy at all about the removal like some of the other companies I had come out, and he advised me on doing it in "phases" to fit my budget. The actual tree removal and stump grinding itself was so smooth and all the workers that came with the crane and stump service were very professional and communicative about what the process was going to be.

We called to have two large pine trees removed since they were in the way of where we needed to put our fence. We are slackers and always wait until the last minute to do anything so of course, we tried to find someone that could take these out quickly as we needed it done ASAP. These guys came out the same day I called and were able to get them out the next day. I was so impressed by how nice and professional they are, it’s nearly impossible to get anyone to come out and/or follow up with anything so it was extremely refreshing that they did both without me having to call and ask what the hold up was. I will forever use this company for future needs. Thank you again!!

5 Common Tree Disease Treatments

Trees are vital for our environment, providing shade, oxygen, and beauty. However, trees are susceptible to diseases that can compromise their health and longevity. As a reputable tree care company, Driscoll Tree Service provides proper care and timely treatment to ensure the well-being of your trees and prevent the spread of infections. Identifying telltale signs of infection or damage can help mitigate nasty surprises and tree removal emergencies. If you suspect a problem with your trees, here are five common tree disease treatments to help you maintain healthy trees.

Pruning or Removing Damaged Parts

Tree trimming or eliminating damaged parts through tree pruning is a crucial step in managing diseases. Diseased or dead branches can provide entry points for pathogens, allowing diseases to spread rapidly throughout the tree. When you remove affected parts quickly, you can prevent further spread of infection and promote the tree’s overall health. Certified tree service professionals use proper tree pruning techniques to ensure minimal stress and damage.

Chemical Tree Treatment

Chemical tree treatments involve using fungicides, insecticides, or other chemicals to treat tree diseases. These synthetic solutions are usually administered by certified arborists with the knowledge and expertise to identify the specific disease affecting the tree and prescribe the proper treatment. Chemical treatments can effectively control certain tree diseases, but they should be used prudently to minimize environmental effects and ensure the safety of nearby plants, animals, and humans.

Tree Removal

secondary

Sometimes, tree removal may be necessary to prevent the spread of disease to other nearby trees or structures. Severely diseased trees pose a safety hazard because of their weak state, prompting removal to protect the surrounding environment and prevent further damage. Tree removal should be done by trained experts from a trusted tree care company using proper equipment and techniques to ensure safety and minimize disruption to your premises.

Loose Planting for Air Circulation

Proper planting techniques, such as spacing trees appropriately and avoiding overcrowding, can improve air circulation and reduce disease risk. If you plant trees too close to each other, they may compete for resources, creating a favorable environment for the spread of pathogens. Besides promoting good airflow, loose planting allows simple maintenance tasks, such as tree trimming and pruning. Before planting trees in your backyard, consult a professional tree service provider to enhance disease resistance and promote overall health.

Improving Plant Irrigation

Last, proper irrigation is essential for maintaining healthy trees and preventing disease. Overwatering or underwatering can stress trees, increasing susceptibility to infections. By ensuring trees receive the right amount of water at the correct times, you can help them thrive and resist disease. We recommend drip irrigation or soaker hoses to deliver water directly to the tree’s roots, minimizing water waste and promoting efficient water uptake.

Proactive management and timely treatment are vital to preserving the health and vitality of your trees. By implementing these common tree disease treatments, you can help protect your trees from infections and ensure their long-term survival. Contact us at the Driscoll Tree Service and schedule a consultation with our arborists for guidance and help to manage tree diseases effectively.
