Valley Tree Service can help diagnosis and treat many of the more common tree diseases in the South Metro Twin Cities area
Dutch elm disease and oak wilt are common tree diseases caused by a fungus, which will kill the tree once infected. Valley Tree Service can chemically inject your elm or oak tree with Arbotect for elms and Alamo for oaks to prevent the tree from becoming infected. If injected in early spring we may even provide you with a full two-year money back guarantee should your tree die from either of these diseases during the two-year period.
The Emerald Ash Borer can infect and kill ash trees. Valley Tree Service provides a 2-year protection plan. More information about Emerald Ash Borer.
When or why you should prune your tree:
- When the crown (upper branches and leaves) become too large for the root system to provide sufficient water and/or nutrients to the upper portion of the crown. When this occurs, the leaves and branches begin to die and never come back. As a result you end up with several dead branches at the top of your tree.
- When the crown becomes very large so does the amount of weight bearing down on the branches. A strong windstorm can split such branches from the tree; this can result in destroying the symmetry of the tree, cause fungal or bacterial infections. Some of these infections may be quite serious. For example, fungal infections transmitted by insects such as oak wilt or Dutch elm disease to red or pin oaks and American or red elms will result in the death of the tree.
