Preventing And Treating Pests & Diseases Before They Cause Serious Damage

Service Boston, Needham, Concord, Danvers, Cape Cod & the surrounding areas.

Insect and disease management is a key and often overlooked 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 looks 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.

Ticks near Boston and Cape Cod

Tick Treatment

The CDC identifies 4 species of ticks that are a concern in our area: blacklegged tick, brown dog tick, American dog tick, and most recently the arrival of the more aggressive lone star tick. All species may carry bacteria that when transferred through a bite to humans or pets, can lead to serious diseases such as Lyme, babesiosis, and anaplasmosis.  These diseases are often difficult to diagnosis and can lead to long-term health problems.
