Signs of an Insect or Pest Infestation

Trees are honest folk. To a tree expert, there is no hiding the signs of distress or infestation. Some signs include: 
  • Curled or discolored leaves
  • Visible holes in the bark 
  • Tree rotting or decay in the wood
  • Tree blight caused by fungus
  • Blights
  • Sap being secreted and dripping, causing spots to appear around the tree

If you have a bark beetle, maple bug, box elder bug, aphid, or tent caterpillar infestation on your large trees, it’s time to call in an arbor care tree service immediately for treatment to fix your tree! An infestation is a sure sign that your tree is in distress, and whether it’s for an emerald ash borer or sick tree, having someone come in to spray your trees for insects and pests is critical to preserving the tree.  However, once we have the infestation under control, proper fertilization and soil improvement is critical to the tree's resistance against future insect infestations.

Affordable Arbor Tree Care to Prevent Infestation

The best way to prevent an infestation of insects is to use a holistic approach to keeping your trees healthy and strong.  This approach includes soil improvement and tree fertilization services. Healthy Trees for Life is a tree care company that advocates for ensuring that trees are vibrant, healthy, and resistant to infestation, but we also understand that even with the best intentions, diseased or dying trees are a part of the circle of life. We offer all aspects of tree care, and we treat infestations with pesticide as needed on commercial properties as part of our follow-up visits. Because overuse of pesticides can actually be harmful to the tree and its environment, we ensure the tree has thriving conditions (good soil and nutrients from fertilization) and then spray for insects as needed.  We treat the whole tree, not just the symptoms.  We also offer natural and organic remedies on request.
