What is Tree Healthcare?
Tree healthcare is important for all trees, especially those that grow in an urban environment. It is important to assess your trees to ensure they are not diseased, infested with pests, or lacking important nutrients. Chemical applications are typically needed in most situations. However, simple tree pruning can also offer a solution to some issues. Our skilled Omaha arborist can make recommendations to keep the trees on your property healthy and beautiful.
Chlorosis occurs in trees for a couple of different reasons. Some of the most common causes for chlorosis are nutrient deficiencies, compacted soil, poor drainage, and poor soil pH. The first signs of chlorosis in a tree are when the leaves begin to turn light green or yellow in color. This is an indication the tree is likely not getting enough iron or magnesium from the soil, which aids in the process of making chlorophyll. In the Omaha Metro area, birch and oak trees are the most susceptible to chlorosis. Over time, this can cause a tree a lot of stress which will impact the leaves and growth of the tree. We offer systemic iron injections to help treat the lack of iron in the soil. This tree service will need to be completed yearly. This is because we can’t change the soil pH on a large scale since water will naturally wash it away over time. When deciding to plant trees and shrubs, it is important to consider the soil pH levels of your property and choose plants that are most compatible.
There are many types of fungi that can invade trees. Spots on the leaves (brown/black/red) are indicators that the tree is suffering from a disease. Most fungi can be treated, by either spraying or systemic injections. Reach out to your local arborist to see what is the best course of action for your trees.
Insects can cause significant damage to a tree, especially boring insects and invasive nematodes. These insects can disrupt how that tree is able to transport water, which can lead to wilting or dieback. We offer systemic injections that can potentially help manage these unwanted pests.
