Many tree insect and disease problems such as Anthracnose, Hemlock Adelgid and Emerald Ash Borer can be controlled through targetted treatment. Additionally, tree trimming may be required to remove diseased or dead limbs. If the tree is deemed hazardous, tree removal may be the only solution.
Early detection is the key to successful insect and disease control.

Insects damage plants by chewing leaves, sucking sap, or boring into wood. Careful monitoring and targeted treatment are essential to controlling harmful pests and a key part of our tree service program.
Treatment options depend on the pest. In all cases, treatment should only be applied to the specific plant that has a problem. Blanket sprays of all plants is bad practice that kills beneficial insects and promotes unnecessary chemical usage.
Timing is everything in controlling harmful pests. Treatments must be applied at the most vulnerable time in a pest’s lifecycle. Giroud Arborists monitor pest and weather reports to determine the best time each year to treat each insect.
Bacteria, fungi, nematodes and viruses are infectious diseases that can damage and in some cases kill a tree. The first step to controlling or curing a disease is professional confirmation of the problem. While symptoms of certain diseases such as Anthracnose and Bacterial Leaf Scorch can be similar, the treatment is different for each disease.
Your Giroud Arborist will evaluate the tree to determine what is causing the problem and the best tree service options for treatment.
