WHAT IS TREE SPRAYING?
Just like tree pruning and tree removal are essential parts of a tree care routine, tree spraying is just as important. Tree spraying involves the application of chemical sprays to protect your trees against insects and diseases.
Different types of disease and insect infestations require different mixtures of chemicals, so it’s important to understand the health of your tree and its potential complications. Not only is the type of spray important, but also the timing. There are certain windows of opportunity in which spraying is the most effective, and some diseases can take several series of sprays in order to help adequately treat your tree.
The certified arborists at Croft Tree are experienced in evaluating the health status of your trees in order to come up with a treatment plan. We are equipped with the tools and expertise to properly spray your trees in order to treat or prevent insect infestations and the onset of disease.
THE BENEFITS OF TREE SPRAYING
Every tree owner who has dealt with insect infestations is all too familiar with the impact that beetles, worms, caterpillars, and insect larvae can have on your trees. Not only do they deteriorate the external aesthetic of your trees, but they can also severely damage the internal structure of your tree as well. The best solution for additional protection for your trees is to spray them. The main benefits of tree spraying include:
Just like regular tree pruning and trimming are healthy for your tree, so is routine tree spraying. The procedure can help your trees to develop a strong immune system to fight off diseases, pests, and insects.

If your tree is diseased or is dealing with a pest problem, tree spraying can provide instant relief to eradicate both the pests and the diseases that they carry.
Professionally applied spray can prevent diseases and insect outbreaks before they happen. A trained arborist is able to determine the likelihood of specific diseases and insects that certain types of trees or areas tend to attract.
