We believe in being proactive in preventing insect infestations and disease outbreaks in our customer’s trees and shrubs. This starts with identifying the pest risk for plants before it becomes an overwhelming issue. Carefully monitoring and assessing the new or existing pest situation ensures action is taken as soon as possible to prevent further outbreak.
 
Above all, prevention is the best medicine and the ideal option when it comes to proactive insect and disease prevention. To help minimize any damage to your trees and shrubs due to insect or disease, we work to ensure the landscape is healthy and that the direct environment around the plant is not stressed. This means that the primary stress contributors (soil, water and nutrient levels) of a plant are effectively managed and kept in balance. When this is accomplished, risk of pest and disease infestation is reduced, as is the need for traditional pesticide use over time.

Identify and Treat

Our Certified Arborists know what insects and diseases affect which trees and shrubs and can prescribe the safest and most effective treatments for controlling those insects and diseases. We focus our treatments to control problem insects and address diseases that are likely to cause health issues with your landscape plants. We strive to stay ahead of new threats to your landscape and provide cutting edge treatments that keep maintain our mission to use organic and natural services.
 
We utilize advanced technology to focus our treatments and produce the most effective results possible. We can do this through soil injections and direct tree injections, through these processes only the effected tree gets treated and avoids unnecessary treating of other flora and fauna.
