My trees look healthy, why should I treat them for insects or disease?
Your trees may seem healthy now, but we are seeing a rise in fatal insects and diseases across the Rocky Mountain region, negatively impacting our trees and landscape investments. With years of drought on record and drastic temperature swings coming in and out of winter; our trees are unable to mount their own defenses and are beginning to deplete their reserves. Healthy and well managed trees are succumbing to this pressure, at unprecedented rates.
As with most living things, the best treatments are preventative treatments!
Treating your trees when they are still healthy, means they’ll stay healthy and beautiful for years to come!
Why is injecting a better option than traditional spray pesticides?
In humans and animals, an injection is the fastest mode of delivery for certain medications or treatments. The same is true for trees! Trunk injection is the most effective alternative to spraying or soil applied pesticides for tree insect or pest control.
Injections go directly into the trunk where it is quickly taken up by the vascular system and distributed throughout the tree. With over 10 years of research and development, our trunk injection system is proven to give the best results when protecting trees from pests.
Trunk injections are completely contained by the tree from the moment of delivery, and require no waiting period to access the area or enjoy your shade! For this same reason, trunk injections are environmentally safe and pet friendly!
How much does treatment cost?
Treatment costs are based on the size of the tree. The size of the tree determines how much product is administered. The cost of treating a tree is much less than the cost of pruning or removing damaged trees from your property. Tree retention is also about preserving your property’s value.
Injection allows an Arborist to fine tune the combinations and ingredients needed to treat each particular tree. Precision, means injection is a very cost-effective method with a higher success rate than any other method. Feel free to contact us for an estimate!
How long does an injection last?
By way of a pressurized trunk injection, our treatment specialist provides two years of protection for your tree with a success rate of 99%!
Is it safe for my pets and wildlife?
Unlike spraying or soil applications, our system injects directly into the tree, limiting any impact to your family, the applicator, and the environment around you.
When is the best time to treat trees?
Trees should be treated during their normal growing season while they are pulling water and nutrients up through their vascular system. Spring through fall, is the ideal time period for treatment.
