Our Tree Disease Identification and Management Process

01.

Tree Inspection

During an inspection, our certified arborist will look for signs of stress or damage, such as dead branches, cracks in the trunk, or signs of insect activity.

We will also examine the leaves, bark, and branches of the tree to identify any visual symptoms of disease, such as discoloration, wilting, or unusual growth patterns.

02.

Disease Diagnosis

Diagnosis is a critical step in the tree disease management process.

Accurately identifying the specific disease affecting the tree is important in developing an effective treatment plan. 

03.

Disease Treatment

We will develop a customized treatment plan that is tailored to the specific needs of the tree and the type of disease it is facing.

Our treatment plan may involve a combination of techniques, including pruning, fertilization, insecticide or fungicide application, or other measures.

04.

Monitoring the Tree

Our team will monitor the tree over time to ensure that the treatment is effective and that the disease does not recur.

Regular check-ups and preventative maintenance may be recommended to keep the tree healthy.

It’s important to note that different tree diseases require different treatment approaches and not all diseases can be cured. Early detection and timely intervention are key to managing tree diseases effectively.
