As with people, you have to treat diseases with the proper medicine. To do that
you have to know two things: Your patient and the disease.
To blindly treat a tree without knowing what is wrong can only make things worse.
Do you know what the tree is? What variety? What is normal for the plant?
It may not be sick after all, what you see may just be a part of its normal life cycle.
Now that you have decided that the tree is diseased, do you know what diseases are common (or not so common) for this species of tree?
Are you able to determine how healthy the tree appears, or able to determine proper surrounding conditions?
For instance, is it planted at the proper height, or is it set in the correct sun exposure?
We at Arbor Doctor have the experience and the knowledge to answer all the questions and give your tree the proper care.
It has been discovered that certain plants, known as indicator plants,
can be used as a referrence point to insect and pest activity.
Observing the life cycle patterns of these plants, and the insects and
pests associated with them has revealed that certain lifecycle stages
of these organisms correspond to certain Growing Degree-Day
values. Growing Degree-Day is a measurement of the growth and
development of plants and insects which is directly related to the
daily maximum and minimum temperature.
Trees provide so many benefits that we either take for
granted and just aren't aware of. The Tree Benefit
Calculator allows you to calculate an approximation of the
benefits your landscape trees can provide for your
property. With minimal inputs of location, species and tree
size, you can get an understanding of the environmental
and economic value your trees provide on an annual basis.
