Insect populations and diseases go through natural cycles that maintain the balance in our ecosystems. In urban settings these natural cycles are disturbed causing infestations and outbreaks to get out of control.
Pests and disease attack a tree’s natural immune system causing damage and shortening its life span. An Advanced Tree Care expert will assess your tree to accurately identify the problem and determine the right care plan.
As an environmentally responsible company, Advanced Tree Care promotes using non-chemical controls as the first line of defense. Allowing a tree to fight problems naturally improves its overall health and vigor. In extreme cases however, the tree may be unable to fight the problem on its own and pesticides would be recommended to speed recovery.
If left untreated, pests like Gypsy Moths, Eastern Tent Caterpillars, Spring & Fall Cankerworm or more exotic insects like the Asian Long-Horned Beetle and Emerald Ash Borer, can fatally impair not only your tree but entire tree populations. Diseases such as Oak Wilt, Verticillium Wilt, Fireblight and Nectria Canker, if left unmanaged, threaten to do the same.
