At Deep Roots Tree Care we take a natural and holistic view of disease management. Many pests can be treated using non-chemical methods that do not disperse dangerous chemicals throughout our community. There certainly are some insects that are best treated with chemicals, such as the Western Bark Beetle, but correct diagnosis and careful consideration must be made before any chemicals should be applied. Many times trees can be come infected by disease or infested by insects because of natural stresses on the tree itself. When the tree does not have the energy to uses its natural defenses the diseases and insects can take hold. There are numerous reasons for a tree to become stressed and identification and mediation of these factors are some of the best disease mitigation techniques. If a disease is treated without addressing what is stressing the tree it is most likely that the disease will return. At Deep Roots Tree Care we are concerned for the health and safety of your trees while also taking into consideration the environmental impact of irresponsible pesticide use.
