Our services include:
Insect and Disease Management
Our team uses an integrated approach to managing insects and diseases that begins with maintaining plant health using sound horticultural practices including pruning and creating optimal soil conditions for plant growth. Periodic inspections are essential to detect pest infestations before they reach damaging levels. We are trained to recognize beneficial insects that will help naturally suppress pest populations, and we also release beneficials to augment existing populations. When treatments are necessary, Tree and Shrubs Insect Services can apply organic and natural-based materials and reduced-risk products that provide effective pest suppression while protecting people and the environment.
We use innovative techniques, to solve your diseased tree's problem(s).
Tree and Shrub Pruning
Tree and Shrubs Insect Services provides tree pruning and tree trimming services. Pruning your trees on a regular basis keeps them strong, healthy and beautiful. There are many different tree trimming methods for different species of trees, and for how you want your trees to grow. We understand how, when and why to prune.
Tree and Shrub Fertilization
Help make your trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals stronger, so they can ward off insects and diseases naturally. Fertilization and nutrients can fix a lot of problems that lawn fertilization, chemical damage, improper pruning or trimming, drought, weather, wind stress, environment and over watering can bring about.
Tree and shrub fertilization is not a service to take lightly. Over fertilization of your horticulture plants can make the tree or shrub develop a disease, fungus, bad bacteria, or root rot. Tree and Shrubs Insect Services can inspect your trees and shrubs throughout the year. We know which trees and shrubs we are going to fertilize and whether we will heavily fertilize or lightly fertilize them.
Cabling and Bracing
Cables and brace rods are supplemental structural supports intended to reduce the risk of failure of weak branches and multiple stems.
Tree and Shrub Planting
Tree planting and shrub planting increases property values, saves energy costs and makes your home's landscape more beautiful. Selecting trees and shrubs is important. Are there practical intentions or is it just ornamental? With what other plants will the new tree or shrub grow and be displayed? Some types of trees and shrubs are more successful in Ottawa's climate and soil structure than others. Whether you need to choose a variety of perfect trees or shrubs for a major landscape renovation or simply choose a single tree to shade your home and lawn, Tree and Shrubs Insect Services can provide expert recommendations to help with your selection.
Tree Cavity Treatment
Filling a cavity in an otherwise healthy tree may help improve appearance, promote wound closure and prevent water and animals from entering the hollow. While it will not cure decay, proper cavity treatment (in combination with regular pruning, feeding and insect/disease control) may help improve a tree's defenses.
Trees are our most valuable natural asset, and they provide us with countless memories and benefits. However, no tree is absolutely safe, and - at times - even healthy trees fail. Tree and Shrubs Insect Services are able to help. We can tell you if your landscape contains high-risk or potentially hazardous trees. Our consultation will include a recommended course of action and care guidelines.
