What Can I Do to Prevent Pests and Diseases in My Trees?

Here are some steps you can take to prevent pests and diseases in your trees 

Inspect Trees Regularly

Conduct regular inspections of your trees to identify signs of pests, diseases, or other issues. Early detection allows for prompt intervention. Don't know what you're looking for? Get in touch to learn more about our Tree Maintenance Program and let us regularly inspect your trees for you. 

Regular Pruning

Regularly prune your trees to remove dead, damaged, or diseased branches. Proper pruning enhances air circulation and sunlight penetration, reducing the risk of issues.

Fungicide Treatments

In cases where fungal diseases are a recurring problem, consider preventive fungicide treatments. Be sure to look into our fungicide treatment service line for a full suite of fungicide-fighting applications to protect your trees.

Adequate Nutrition

Proper fertilization supports healthy growth and resilience against pests and diseases. We've been fertilizing the urban forest for decades. Be sure to learn more about our deep root fertilization process and what types of nutrients we feed your tree! 

Proper Watering

Water trees appropriately, providing sufficient moisture without overwatering. Overly wet or dry conditions can stress trees and make them more susceptible to issues. Avoid overwatering, as this can create conditions favorable to fungal diseases. Avoid wetting the foliage and instead water in the root zone. Check out our Tree Watering Guide for specific and practical steps to water your tree. 


Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the tree to regulate soil temperature, retain moisture, and suppress weeds. Mulch also helps prevent soil-borne diseases.
