Disease & Pest Treatments for Plants, Trees

From Emerald Ash Borers to Boxwood Blight, there are a nearly infinite number of diseases and pests just waiting to ruin your beautiful landscape. Many diseases are specific to types of plant, meaning treatments for one are ineffective for others.

As normal as changing the oil in your car, your trees and plants need proactive maintenance too. Healthcare for your living landscape is the best way to protect the investment you've made in land and landscaping.

While anyone can apply chemicals (assuming you're certified), correctly diagnosing pests and disease takes experience. Arborscapes' Plant Healthcare team is made up of Master Arborists, Certified Arborists, Horticulturists, and Certified Pesticide Applicators all with decades of experience.

With an Arborscapes Plant Healthcare subscription, we constantly monitor the health of your plants and trees. Regularly supporting with customized nutrients. Proactively treating and preventing pests and disease. Your yard is a living and breathing investment... and Arborscapes makes house-calls!

Call Arborscapes for these and any other pests or diseases you have with your plants.
