Insects and diseases can threaten the health of a tree, as well as entire tree populations. If trees are kept in optimal condition – with sufficient water, nutrients and light – they are less susceptible to pest problems and disease.
If your tree develops any abnormality or isn't thriving as it once was, consider having a certified arborist assess it to correctly diagnose the problem. An Arborwood expert will look at the tree type, abnormality patterns in roots, leaves and trunk, as well as surrounding factors to determine the nature of the problem. It is essential to distinguish between an infestation, an infectious disease and a non-infectious disorder to determine the treatment that will be effective.
Arborwood tree experts are trained and licensed to diagnose and treat insect and disease problems and it is our policy to use the least toxic methods and products.
