Keeping Trees Healthy
The most effective way to keep a tree disease free is to keep the tree healthy and vigorous. This is accomplished by providing a healthy root environment. A healthy root environment consists of adequate growing space for the root system, sufficient water, fertilizer, pH., and oxygen. Long, deep watering over the entire root system with time for the soil to dry between watering is better for trees than frequent light watering.

Recommended Yearly Treatment:
Every year, I recommend giving trees a deep root feeding with a systemic insecticide. This treatment provides trees with the required nutrients they need to grow, and the treatment also protects trees from insects for at least the entire growing season. Seven years ago, I was hired by Tom’s Tree Place to provide this treatment to a set of newly planted trees. For the past seven years, I fertilized the trees on a prescribed schedule (similar to yearly yard plan but for trees), and these trees were watered consistently, and pruned with an educated eye. At the same time but across the street, another row of trees were planted. I did not treat these trees. Look at the difference between the healthy growth of the trees that I treated compared to the trees I did not treat.
