• Preventive Care
• Disease Detection
• Tree & Stump Removal
Trees and shrubs can be destroyed by insects
and disease. The control of insect pests and diseases
requires correct diagnosis followed by timely application
of the proper treatment. Conserv-A-Tree experts can
often detect evidence of disease or insect damage
in early stages when control is relatively easy. We
offer both systemic and foliar treatments in a year
round program to protect your trees. Each approach
has its advantages, depending on the pest being treated
and other factors that are evaluated.
Systemic applications of insecticides and fungicides
work from the inside out. Granular pesticide is applied
to the soil and is absorbed by the plant roots. The
trees vascular system carries the material to infected
part of the tree. Commonly treated by systemics are
lacebugs, leaf miners and many other hard-to-control
insects on birch trees, hollies, azalea and andromeda.
SUMMER OIL SPRAY
A non-toxic, water soluble oil that smothers insects
before they become a problem. It controls a wide range
of pests including aphids, mites scale and mealybugs.
This includes our special Gypsy Moth Spray Program.
These foliage sprays are scheduled throughout May and
June to control not only Gypsy Moths but other leaf
chewing insects as well.
