Throughout the year there are many insects that can affect, damage, or even kill your trees and shrubs. Our Tree Care RX division has ISA-certified arborists on staff and available to help you to put your worry to rest. Our arborists will make sure you get the latest information and treatment options available to ensure that you are making informed decisions.
Our ISA certified arborists have been treating insects in the Chicagoland area for over 20 years and are familiar with the commonly occurring pests as well as the new varieties. Our green team will be able to diagnose your insects and provide a course of action to keep your pests under control and keep your trees & shrubs healthy.
Treating & Protecting Your Trees
Our applications are individualized and performed at the best times of the year to either prevent or control specific insect pests. We use past history, indicator plants, and growing degree days to help us know when to anticipate these pests. As we all know, Mother nature is not on the same calendar as we are. Indicator plants and growing degree days shed light on the specific timing of certain pests and diseases showing up on your property. For example, March 1st this year might have completely different problems occurring than March 1st last year because of many different contributors. Our treatment schedule is based on a combination of all this information.
Constant Protection from Insects & Pests
Once your insect issues are resolved, we recommend inquiring about our Tree Care Treatment Programs. One of the many benefits of our programs is that we provide fertilization to supply the nutrients your trees and shrubs are lacking. Our 100% organic fertilizers will supplement your soils to provide better conditions for your plants to thrive. Proper nutrition gives your plants the building blocks needed to develop their own natural defenses against many types of insects. Strong, healthy plants have a better chance of recovering after insect and disease attacks.
