The enemy of healthy trees and shrubs has arrived. With Spring, comes the inevitable invasion of insect and disease problems. While Emerald Ash Borer and Hemlock Woolly Adelgid are a major concern, there are many other destructive issues to worry about. Check out Giroud’s list of top warning signs then head out to your yard and see how your plants are doing. Early detection is key. If you spot problems, let us know.
Below are Before and After photos of a “Rose of Sharon” that uprooted in Yardley. Erik Rodgers, Giroud Arborist, inspected the tree and found the root system was still intact with a good root ball making it possible to save it with staking. After staking, the “Rose of Sharon” is once again upright. The tree will need these stakes for a least a year to give the root system time to get re-established. Giroud Crew Leader, Luigi Vargas, snapped both photos and commented that this was one of the nicest “Rose of Sharon’s” he had ever seen.
Giroud donates removal of dangerous limbs over playground at a shelter for homeless families in Doylestown, PA. The donation is part of the Giroud Treework for Charity program which was established in 1997 to help local non-profits care for their irreplaceable trees.
