To the untrained eye, any living tree looks healthy. If it is mostly green, it’s easy enough to assume that a tree is doing well. However, trees are susceptible to disease just like any other living thing, so they need proper care to remain healthy over the long run. Insects pose a particularly serious threat to many tree species throughout the Jackson area. Contact TLC today to learn more about our tree insect and disease management services.
The epidemic scale population of bark beetles (Mountain Pine Beetle and Douglas Fir Beetle) has devastated landscapes and forests throughout much of North America. Other insects have had a significant impact, and you may not even know they have infested your trees until it is too late. Properly identifying insects and disease in our plants is critical to maintaining a healthy, beautiful, and safe landscape. By working with TLC, you may be able to spot these bark beetles before it is too late to save the tree.
If you fail to have your trees inspected and treated regularly, a dangerous situation may develop. A compromised tree could drop large branches onto the ground when the health of the tree is no longer sufficient to hold up those branches. Or the entire tree could even come down. Avoid putting your property and family at risk by checking in on the health of your trees so they can be treated appropriately.
The services we provide for your trees will depend entirely on what we find when we come out to your property and inspect their condition. For protection from Mountain Pine Beetles and Douglas Fir Beetles, we can use a tree spray and pheromone to limit the chance of an infestation. If Mountain Pine Beetles have already infested a tree, we can use a pesticide to kill the larvae. Any action that we take will be based on our in-depth knowledge of this topic and the many years of experience we have gained working with trees in and around Jackson, WY.
