Some diseases of trees and shrubs are not serious while others are untreatable
with no known cures. We can give you options for treating those that we
can do something about, as well as providing strategies for those diseases
that do not have known cures.
Foliar diseases of deciduous trees tend to recur each season and can often be treated with a foliar application. Systemic diseases are usually the diseases we are not able to treat directly. When no particular control has been shown to be an effective cure, we will recommend treatments that can delay the onset of more serious and widespread decline in a tree. While we might not be able to ‘save’ a tree, we might be able to extend the life of a tree considerably, perhaps giving the owner a chance to enjoy the tree for many years to come.
