Tree Disease Control

Tree Service Acworth

Did you know that just one tree can absorb 50lbs. of carbon dioxide a year? That same one tree may produce up to 250-260lbs. of oxygen! Everyone knows trees are important to the environment, but realizing just how vital they are is a sobering thought. Trees in our urban and suburban areas are out of their natural habitat. In the forest, trees are provided with all the nutrients they require from all the decomposing matter on the forest ground. This is where their "cycle of life" is at its purest. When trees are moved into our neighborhoods and cities, they become quite dependent on us in several crucial areas., which they often do not get. One particular instance is where they are planted. Trees planted too close to other trees or to structures, such as your home, are going to have problems. When their roots have nowhere to spread out and reach for vital nutrients and water, the tree naturally will begin to weaken. A weak tree is very susceptible to disease and insect infestation.
Also, trees have to compete for available nutrients and moisture with large, thirsty lawns and many other trees and plants. Items we take for granted in our yards can take a toll on our trees, and vice versa. When tree roots meet your foundation of your home, some very costly repairs result. Sidewalks, driveways, streets, etc. all are serious impediments to a tree. Unless we take very good care of our trees, getting them in the best location, ensuring proper nutrients are available, and there is sufficient room for growth, our trees will not thrive. Therefore, by having a company you can trust to care for your Landscape features, we do our family, neighborhood, and our planet a good turn when we respect and have our trees and other foliage taken good care of.

Pecan Scab

Anthracnose and root rot are increasingly common diseases. Picture 1 is the effect of this fungus on our treasured Dogwood leaves. These half-dead unsightly leaves often do not even fall off during winter months. They just hang on infecting ever more areas of our dogwoods.
Root rot on picture 2 is usually identified by mushroom-like growth near the tree base. These presence of this on Oaks and other favorite shade trees may not mean the tree will die-but it does indicate decay is present and action should be taken promptly!
