Pest and Disease Management

At times your trees may become infested with pests that may cause stress to your trees. Gatherings on the deck in the shade of your trees may be interrupted with honey dew dripping, or webbing cascading down. Maybe your tree may be showing signs of “Hey, something is wrong here…I need some attention!”

At Just Trees we have an extensive background in pest and disease management. We use an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach when dealing with tree pests and diseases. This approach does not eradicate all pests, but rather reduces their numbers to an acceptable level and to minimize the spread of diseases. We use a variety methods to achieve this and use tree spraying as a last resort. We want to avoid non target species  contact with pesticides, and to minimize the environmental impact that the use of pesticides can cause.
