Tree CareThere are various tree care tasks that property owners should do to avoid diseases and tree treatments. These tasks include pruning, trimming of diseased limbs or branches, fertilizing to ensure the health of trees, mulching, irrigation, and weed control. Incidentally, we have skilled and dedicated personnel to perform these tasks. We can even be tapped during emergencies like doing tree pruning following a storm. We’re just a phone call away.
Tree DiseasesThere are common tree diseases that most property owners face. These diseases include:
- Anthracnose. This disease results in defoliation, twig death, and shoot dieback, normally affecting sycamore trees. We typically inject the tree trunk with a special solution to inhibit infection of the trees.
- Needle cast. This type of disease affects evergreen trees by causing tree needles to turn into purple, yellow, or brown and, eventually, dying. We remedy the disease by pruning, regular irrigation, and removal of drying or dead limbs.
- Blights, scabs, rusts. These diseases normally attack fruit-bearing trees, such as apple, peach, cherry, plum, and nectarine.
- Diplodia. This tree disease is characterized by stunted growth and browning of the leaves. The usual remedy is removal of affected limbs or application of chemicals.
Tree DoctorIt is important to find a tree doctor who has all the licenses, certifications, and extensive knowledge of the different diseases affecting tree species. Your tree surgeon must have lengthy experience in performing various tree treatments to ensure that the right treatments are done instead of just doing a hit-or-miss approach. The good news is that we have such trained specialists in our company, so you can just call us and we’ll send our tree treatment specialist to look at your trees. Our onsite visit will also help us determine the right method of treatment.
Tree FertilizerTrees need nutrients to stay healthy and encourage growth. The most common way of ensuring this is by applying tree fertilizers from trusted brands. At Nashville Tree Solutions, we recommend two types of fertilizers: controlled release and fast release. For slow-release fertilizers, the ideal types of trees are newly planted ones since there are less chances of burning. Meanwhile, fast-release tree fertilizer is commonly used if the property owners want immediate results. However, care should be taken in applying this type of fertilizer since it can overwhelm the trees and lead to burning.
