Pest Management

Like any living thing, plants are susceptible to attack from insects and disease. Limited populations of pathogenic organisms are normal in any landscape, but, in some cases, they must be controlled by the application of materials designed for this purpose. The most common plant pest problems that we treat for are:

  • european winter moth caterpillar
  • gypsy moth caterpillar
  • hemlock woolly adelgid
  • spider mites
  • scale insects
  • fungal diseases of fruit trees, elm, beech, and dogwoods

Tick Management

Protect yourself, your family, and your pets with our tick management program.

Tree Specialists utilizes the latest class of spray materials called bio-rationals. These are the most effective and least toxic materials available for pest management. In fact, most are less toxic than common household cleaning agents. Whenever practical, we recommend removal of insect or disease prone plants and replacement with resistant cultivars.

Thank you so much for the great job you did spraying our trees for caterpillars this year! You saved our spring and summer — we can actually sit on our deck and patio and enjoy our home under our big trees. I barely see any in our yard where I previously had seen lots of newly hatched ones.— Julie H.
