We’ve found that the right mixture of spraying, tree fertilization, and pruning will help trees and shrubs live to their expected lifespan. Obviously, your neighborhood, the existing conditions of the greenery, and regulations can play a factor in how we care for your species of tree.

Also look into our deep root fertilization, which increases tree health and vitality by injecting the tree zone with key nutrients in a time-release method (one treatment can last up to a year in length). All work is guaranteed by the ArborScape Tree Service Parker and Castle Rock team.

The proper plant health care plan includes:

  • Preventive spraying
  • Systemic injections into the bark
  • Cultural controls such as adding nutrients and winter watering

Insect and Disease Control Options

The most effective method to prevent aphids and other defoliating insects is to spray the tree with a pesticide or fungicide as a contact preventive agent.

Injections are a good option if you have environmental concerns about pesticide spraying or for insects that have several generations that attack the target tree each year.  Systemic injections have almost no chance of entering the groundwater supply.

Application of fertilizer is sometimes a good solution to promote the vigor of the tree allowing it to better fight off insects & diseases as well.  Adding water and nutrients to the soil will bolster the tree’s natural defense system.
