Insect & Disease Management
Plant pathology is the scientific study of plant diseases caused by pathogens and environmental conditions. Organisms that cause infectious disease include fungi, oomycetes, bacteria, viruses, viroids, virus-like organisms, phytoplasmas, protozoa, nematodes and parasitic plants. Sound fun?
Infestation refers to the state of being invaded or overrun by pests or jparasites. It can also refer to the actual organisms living on or within a host. In otherwords- your tree.
When proper trimming and tree care are not enough, trees can becoume sick or be attacked by tree eating insects. When at all possible, we try to use as little pesticeds or chemicals as possible. This means proper inspection of trees to leave the beneficial insects or non threatening bacterias and fungi alone. Sometimes when insects or disease are a threat to the life of a tree, or have made the tree unsightly, we impliment the least invasive and most environmentally friendly methods possible.
