Insects and Diseases Management

Insects or diseases can attack any tree during the growing season, however, it is typically weakened trees that attract the unwanted attention.  Insects and diseases can further weaken, or even kill, trees and shrubs. 

Our services include:

  • Identification and diagnosis of insects and diseases
  • Non-toxic insecticidal soaps and horticultural oils
  • Systemic injections into the soil or tree trunk
  • Preventative treatments for Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) and Dutch Elm Disease (DED)
  • Chemical sprays where other alternatives have proven unsuccessful

Our treatment programs are based on the latest research and technology available and adhere to provincial by-laws.   Chemical applications are often combined with other THC tools in an effort to improve the health of the tree and lessen the need for further chemical controls.
