What begins as a small issue can turn into a major problem that threatens your property. Left unchecked, insects and tree diseases can quickly turn your tree and shrub assets into liabilities.
As a licensed, professional tree service, your local Davey team will periodically monitor your trees for some of these common signs of an infestation or disease thinning canopy, undersized or discolored leaves, sawdust-like material, and small holes in tree bark.
And these are just a few of the signs your arborists will look out for!
Once there is a diagnosis, your arborist will provide treatment and/or management options to restore your green assets back to good health.
As the weather warms up, tree pests (insects) also start emerging.
Damage to tree leaves and stems is often the first sign of a bigger tree problem, and possibly an insect infestation.
Signs of a tree pest will vary from tree-to-tree and the type of infestation.
