Preventing and treating pests and diseases before they cause serious damage
Insect and disease management is a key and often over-looked element to a healthy landscape. Hartney Greymont plant healthcare technicians have a broad understanding of not only specific, relevant pests and how they affect your plants, but how ecosystems interact as a whole. Our experience will help you discover how treating or declining to treat insects and pathogens can impact your entire landscape.
Our team of Massachusetts certified arborists look for the earliest signs of disease and insect infestation. And we’ll keep monitoring your trees every time we work on your grounds for the first signs of trouble.
When we visit your property, we’ll monitor your trees for disease and insect damage such as:
- Tree cankers
- Entry/exit holes
- Spotted or discolored leaves and leaf drop
- Chewed or distorted leaves
- Dead or discolored needles
- Bacterial ooze, honeydew-like substance, or mold
- Spongy moth egg masses (formerly gypsy moth)
- Stunting or canopy dieback and dead branches
- Fruiting bodies
Once our arborists have diagnosed the problem, they provide a plan for an effective treatment strategy that may include simply increasing irrigation frequency, doing a root crown excavation with an air tool, or applying a soil injection product.
We work with our clients to come up with the best solution for each particular plant, environment, and situation.
