Prescription-Based Tree Health Care
Prescribing the Right Tree Insect Treatment
Much like humans, trees can become unhealthy. And, if left untreated, they can die. However, the experts at DLC Arbor know how to diagnose insect infestations and diseases in your trees before it’s too late. We’ll suggest and administer the proper treatment in the least invasive and safest manner possible. And, rest assured, we are not in the business of selling unnecessary annual-service programs. We simply want to keep your trees healthy.
Look at the picture above. Most people think those are the holes from the Emerald Ash Borer and will treat the tree for that pest. But, our Master Arborist knows better and will correctly diagnose it as a Lilac Borer. Call us and our insect experts will diagnose and prescribe the proper treatment to address any insect problem. For an appointment, please fill out a service request form or give us a call at 303-378-8000.
Native and Invasive Tree Insects
Insects are a natural and necessary part of our urban forest ecosystem. DLC Arbor knows which insects are beneficial and which are dangerous. If we find a dangerous, invasive bug, we’ll prescribe the right tree insect control.
Most bugs are harmless, but, if any action is necessary, we’ll recommend the most efficient, cost-effective method to get rid of them. We’ve got a handy guide here for pictures of common tree pests found in the Denver area.
Important Mountain Pine and Ips Beetles News
The beetle populations have returned to pre-outbreak levels, so the epidemic has ended. DLC Arbor no longer recommends spraying for Mountain Pine and Ips Beetles. But, be aware that many tree care companies are still promoting this service. If you see a promotion to spray your pine and spruce trees for these beetles, throw it away. It’s a waste of money.
