Disease And Insect Treatment Plans

Insects and disease wreak havoc on trees and plants throughout Minneapolis. The emerald ash borer, bronze birch borer, and Japanese beetles are just a few of the over one hundred insects that prey upon trees. Some of the diseases include Dutch elm disease and oak wilt disease. The list can go on and on.

When a tree or shrub on your property has become sick with disease or infested with insects, it is important to take action as soon as possible. Not only do you want to restore the health of the sick trees, but you also want to make sure healthy trees remain that way.

Establishing A Plan

An arborist will find all sick trees and plants in your yard and will determine the exact cause of the illness. Once that cause is identified, a treatment plan can begin. Our Minneapolis tree service uses environmentally friendly methods to treat the sick trees and maintain the rest of the trees and plants on your property. But before we begin a treatment method, we will discuss all options with you and provide you with a free quote so you know what the cost will be. Once everything is ready, the plan will be implemented.

Treatment Timing

It should be known, however, that there is a schedule in which treatment needs to be performed. There are some times that are better than others at targeting a problem. For instance, a tree may need to be pruned in order to combat all or part of the problem. If it is not a good time of year to prune the tree, we may inject the tree with the proper treatment and then prune it later when it is safe. Pruning causes open wounds that, if open the wrong time of year, can speed up infestation or expose the tree to additional bugs and diseases. When done at the right time, it is a great way to trim away stressed and dead parts of the tree so new growth is encouraged. We will put together a comprehensive plan that tells you what needs to be done and when it will be done.
