Tree Disease Control & Treatment

Trees, shrubs and other ornamental plantings represent a sizeable investment and asset to most homeowners.

Keeping trees, shrubs and other woody plants healthy is the job of professional arborists. Deciding when to use fungicides and other plant health improvement techniques should be left to professionals with the knowledge and training to do the job safely and effectively.

Things To Look For

  • Crown showing signs of wilting or scorching
  • Leaves smaller than normal in one section or the tree
  • Early fall color in one section of the tree or the whole tree
  • Dieback of twigs and limbs
  • Reduced shoot growth
  • Leaf discoloration
  • Stress-induced production of numerous small cones or fruit of poor quality
  • Heavy resin or gum flows
  • Girdling roots

Diseases of trees and shrubs may be caused by harmful bacteria, fungi and viruses.
