Talk to a Symmetree Arborist about our Disease and Pest Management Program
Our arborists will take a full detailed account of your trees history in order to obtain an accurate diagnoses for what treatments are necessary to be sure that we accomplish your trees health goals. From there we’ll prescribe a treatment that is right for you, along with any necessary fertilization treatments to reduce potential stressors.
Common Reasons for Pests and Disease
Your tree’s may be stressed. This causes weakness in the tree allowing pests and disease to spread easily and rapidly
Too much watering
Insufficient nutrients, vitamins, and minerals
Open wounds caused by storm damage, improper pruning and mechanical injuries such as lawn mower damage to the base of your tree. This provides pests and disease an opportunistic site to access the tree
Your trees soils drainage capacities may be too high or too low, meaning that water is not able to hold onto the water for long enough for the tree to access or the water is suffocating the roots by drowning them
Soil PH may be off
Imbalance in the ecosystem
Sometimes the tree may simply have poor genetics
How it Works
Our Certified Pesticide Technicians use ACECAP systemic insecticide and fungicide injections to treat your trees directly through their vascular system. It’s like giving your tree a small needle loaded with the necessary ingredients to eliminate particular disease and pest populations. We do this in tandem with our pruning program to mechanically remove any obvious disease within the canopy as well as our fertilization program to give the trees health a boost. Generally you want to put your tree on a two year insecticide/ fungicide program so that you can alternate the ingredients used in order to reduce the likelihood of disease and pest resistance.
