The town of Fletcher was renamed Aurora in 1907. This prairie town stretched from Yosemite Street to Peoria and 6th Ave to 26th Avenue. Now Colorado’s third-largest city, Aurora has a strong military tradition by being home to Fitzsimons Army Hospital, Lowry Air Force Base and Buckley Air Force Base. Homeowners with ash trees should understand the available options to deal with the emerald ash borer (EAB). DLC Arbor only services western Aurora with the following zipcodes 80010, 80011, 80012, 80017, 80014 and 80013.
Emerald Ash Borer Trunk Injections
The Colorado State Forest Service recommends that homeowners with mature ash trees should get their trees treated for ash borers this year. The EAB came to Colorado in 2013 and its spread is inevitable. This tree pest has decimated tens of millions of ash trees east of the Mississippi River. American ash trees have no immunity. DLC Arbor offers tree trunk injects that protects ash trees from EAB, lilac borers and other ash tree insects. Click here for the latest news on the EAB.
Tree Pruning and Trimming
Mature hardwood trees need to be periodically pruned to keep them healthy. Proper trimming eliminates branches that are dead or dying. This can reduce the risk of harm to your family and property, as well as preventing decay and improving the overall health of your tree(s). Tree trimming also reduces branch density, which makes trees less susceptible to Aurora’s late spring and early fall snow storms. Opening up the canopy lets more sunlight into the interior of the tree. Your view may be improved, the overall appearance and structure of the tree is improved and healthy growth will be promoted. Contact the experts at DLC Arbor to determine the type of pruning your trees may need.
