Setting Up Your Trees for Success
The easiest and most effective way to reduce the impact of insects and diseases that could harm your trees is to reduce environmental stress on the tree. Stresses like drought or poor soil impede your tree’s ability to defend itself against an attack. Trees that are properly maintained and growing under optimal conditions are also less likely to develop costly problems as a result of stress. Tree owners can take simple steps that go a long way toward improving the vitality of their trees and ensure they get the most benefit from their trees in the long-term.
