Tree & Shrub Treatments
The mission of our Tree and Shrub Division is to provide you with a program of quality and timely applications to control certain insects and diseases that can mar the beauty of your trees and shrubs. Insects such as Japanese Beetles and tent caterpillars and diseases like leaf spot fungus and shot hole disease can be common problems in this area. We control other insects preventively throughout the year by targeting the times they are most active and the shrubs they are most likely to attack.
During late fall and spring we apply horticultural oil products to control insect eggs and larvae. These applications are like applying a "Pre-emergent" to your trees and shrubs. We can significantly reduce insect damage to your landscape by controlling the insects before they mature into adults and begin to reproduce.
Insect season in Georgia is normally during late spring through early fall. During this time we apply contact and systemic insect and disease control to target your ornamental trees and shrubs at least four times. This again, reduces the damage caused by insects and disease to your trees and shrubs.
We also make sure we take care of the parts of your trees and shrubs that you don't see by injecting slow release fertilizer into the ground around your trees and shrubs. This fertilizer not only feeds your plants the necessary nutrients to allow them to bloom, but also helps to relieve soil compaction.
