2020 Denver Tree Issues
Winter Kill From Polar Plunges
In October 2019, Denver experienced two polar plunges in October. Many trees had not hardened-off yet (the process of preparing for freezing temperatures) and some may have freeze damage. When this happened in November 2015, the trees most affected were Plum, Cherry, Peach, and Siberian Elms. The trees that froze don’t show any signs during the winter and damage becomes apparent the next spring only after the tree was supposed to leaf-out.
Fire Blight Treatment
There is a Fire Blight epidemic in the Front Range affecting Apple, Crabapple, and Pear trees that has dramatically increase every year since 2013. Our Master Arborist says, “It is uncommon for me to go to a property and not find Fire Blight on the Apple and Crabapple trees.” DLC Arbor is a leader in new and more effective approaches to Fire Blight. We base our treatments on years of experience, the pathology of Fire Blight and tree biology. Homeowners with Apple or Pear trees should us to discuss your treatment options.
Emerald Ash Borer (EAB)
Believe it or not, Denver Metro Area has an estimated 1.45 million Ash Trees. EAB devastates Ash since the trees have no resistance to the insect. In 2019, the EAB moved out if the federal quarantine area in Boulder County and is on the move. The effort to save the Ash in our City is staggering, and Denver started its Be A Smart Ash program to address this problem. Denver Forestry treats most city-owned trees and homeowner are responsible for Ash on their property, so please contact us to discuss your treatment options.
