At Low Price Tree Services, we are committed to providing quality care for your trees. The key to long living, healthy trees is preventing disease. Once a tree has become infected, in many instances, it may need to be cut down. Our company specializes in tree disease control via multiple methods which include tree spaying. Currently, we service all of Asheville, Hendersonville, Buncombe County and Henderson County in NC.
Why Do My Trees Need A Spray Service?
If there are trees on your private property or commercial landscape, you should know that tree spaying is highly effective and can reduce treatment costs. Spraying facilitates tree disease control by maintaining tree health. Our company has trained technicians that know when, where and how much to spray on your trees for optimal results. Because the weather usually dictates our activities, we will not spray your trees during rain or wind. Either of these elements can cause chemicals to go in unwanted places. This can cause pollution and endangerment to people, animals and plants.

Tree Disease Control Services in Asheville & Buncombe County, NC
There are countless diseases that can render a tree lifeless if it hasn’t received the preventative spray treatment(s). One disease that directly affects tree roots is Phytophthora Root Rot. This disease can easily overtake a tree if the soil around it stays wet for an extended time. It can even live in the soil for years before attacking. Once the tree is infected, the wood underneath the bark will be reddish-brown in color. The leaves will wilt and turn either dull green, yellow, red or even purple.
Another well-known tree disease is tree cankers. They show on a tree as individual, dying areas on the branches and bark. Cankers are caused by fungi that get inside of the tree and grow between the wood and bark. Ultimately, fungi kill the bark which causes the cankers to develop. The tree is then exposed to a host of conditions due reduced protection from the missing bark.
There Is No Room For Generalizations
As discussed, tree spraying is a highly effective method for treating diseases and pests. Many companies offer tree spray services, but have the ideology that spraying is a “quick fix” to all tree problems. Therefore, they may just do a general spraying at the time of application. At Low Price Tree Services, we realize that it’s not fair for the consumer to be at the mercy of inaccurate advice. We know that spraying must be applied only for specific tree issues. When specific sprays are combined with defined techniques, only then do trees receive the maximum benefits.
Timing Is Everything
Fungi and other pests that cause diseases are complicated life forms. For this reason, there is a limited amount of time to achieve ideal results. Once the specific window(s) has closed, even if the treatment is applied at maximum potency, it may not resolve the pest issue. Furthermore, applying treatment too late or too early could exacerbate the problem. A trustworthy and responsible company, such as Low Price Tree Services, will advise you of the appropriate times and situations for when sprays should be administered. Our tree disease control services are superior because we have knowledge of the life cycle of pests that cause tree infections.
Depending on the life cycle and virulence of some pests, multiple spray applications may be necessary. In cases such as these, it’s imperative that each spray treatment be applied at specific intervals. For these reasons, we offer treatment schedules according to the life cycle of the identified pest and not according to calendar dates. As you can see, your trees are in good and capable hands with Low Price Tree Services. Our science-based methods of tree care are bar none.
Be Wary Of Oil-Based Sprays
Many companies engage in the practice of applying spray oils to control tree pests and disease. Our company can determine if this type of spray will be most beneficial to your needs. If this is the case, natural oils will be the best option as they are more environmentally safe. However, there is a downside as the pests must be detectable in order for the oil to work. This could in turn increase your costs as spray oils must be applied more often.
Another type of oil is known as dormant oil spray. These are also considered to contain a lower toxicity as compared to insecticides. A recognized beneficial factor is that they reduce the harm to insects that are advantageous to trees.
Any type of spray oil that is used operates by suffocating the insects. For this reason, multiple layers must be applied over a period of time. However, oils have another downside as they can destroy certain species of evergreens and seasonal trees. They can also damage cars and houses.
By now, you realize that tree health is something to be taken seriously. Trees are not only create beauty. Many trees are valued at a high cost depending on what they can be harvested for. We rely on trees for a number of reasons which include home building, food, shade and different types of musical instruments. The hard truth is that insects and other life forms are also in need of trees. Therefore, we as humans have to live with them. However, with Low Price Tree Services, you can increase your chances of living with them in harmony.
