Young ticks or nymphs are especially active during warm weather. Deer ticks are the primary transmitters of Lyme disease, an inflammatory disease characterized at first by a rash, headache, fever, and chills, and later by possible arthritis and neurological and cardiac disorders.

Grubs gone wild..

TREE-TECH provides off-the-shelf programs for Japanese Beetles Control NJ. July 4th, Independence day, fireworks, barbecues and fun! It’s also about the time when you will start seeing Japanese Beetles. The last two years I have noticed the first Japanese Beetles around June 27th, but they don’t really start to cause problems until mid July to August. The Japanese Beetle traps should not be used for control; just monitoring.

Japanese Beetles Control NJ – Tips and tricks

Some species are more susceptible to this pest; Linden, Sassafras, Purple Leaf Plum, some Birch species, Cherry trees and Roses. There are other prone plants, but these are the primary hosts. If you see adult beetles, apply sprays properly and you will get sufficient control of this Mid-summer leaf chewing insect.

Speaking of Grubs…

Did you know that Japanese Beetles evolve from lawn grubs? Lawn grubs can do significant damage to the root systems of your lawn and then continue on their destructive life cycle as leaf chewing beetles. Applying a grub control to your lawn will reduce the cycle on your property. Trees should still be sprayed for further reduction and to eliminate those who fly in from neighboring properties.

The Fall months are the ideal time to fertilize the trees and shrubs on your property.

  • Promotes rapid growth of newly planted trees for quicker health and beauty.
  • Invigorates weak, declining trees.
  • On-time performance with cutting-edge services at a very reasonable cost.
  • Provides greater structural strength to prevent storm damage..
  • Builds tolerance to injury from insects and diseases.
  • Increases flower and fruit production in some tree species.
  • is very affordable.

Tree feeding and Deep Root Fertilizing is a wise investment

because it:

The Deep Root Fertilization process injects fertilizer and micro nutrients into the root zone of the tree for easy absorption and aeration of the soil. This process can be done until mid-December.

Fall is also the best time to Fertilizer your lawn. Lawn-Tech, Inc. can apply this very important application, even if you don’t maintain a seasonal contract with us. This application will strengthen the roots and is vital for the lawn to pop-up green and lush in the spring!

Happy Spring! Is this the first “real spring” New Jersey has had in a long time? Not really; with a few March temperatures reaching in the mid 70’s our “May flowers” are almost expired before trees have leafed out. A mild winter and current erratic temperatures could wreak havoc on trees, shrubs and lawns. Certain insects that would have died off in a deep freeze didn’t. And trees and shrubs that need the deep cold to hibernate and harden off, may not have. So you must be known to Spring Tree and lawn Care Tips by TREE-TECH arborists.

Spring Tree and lawn Care Tips

Hemlock trees and Evergreens off to a rough start

Hemlocks and other evergreens which have been battling Wooly Adelgid and other insects are at the disadvantage of not having a deep winter freeze. To combat the problem, a Horticultural Oil should be applied to smoother the egg masses. Horticultural Oil is safe for the environment with having super-beneficial powers to control destructive pests. Connect to our facebook page for photos and more information Like us on Facebook

Tick Population

Tick populations, which have been trending steadily upward in our area, are also projected to climb as a result of mild temperatures. Tick Applications can be applied monthly, or you can select the months you , your family or pets spend the most time outdoors.

It’s not too late…

If you have not signed up for your Annual Tree Spray Program, (proposals were mailed in January) please call our office to receive another copy, add sprays, or discuss the needs of your property with an arborist. If you have never sprayed, or if it’s been a while, we are here to answer your questions and address your concerns!

Emerald Ash Borer are beginning to make their way east from Michigan, where they have had catastrophic devastation of the Ash Tree population. If you have Ash trees on your property, please be aware that they will be in danger when this pest invades New Jersey.  There have been infestations in the lower Hudson Valley of New York and some in Central Pennsylvania.

Ash Trees

The larvae feed between the bark and wood, creating S-shaped channels that cut off the tree’s ability to draw up water and nutrients. These channels can only be seen if the bark is peeling away. However, when the larvae turn into Emerald Ash Borer, they exit the bark and leave a “D” shaped hole.

Ash Tree BarkEmerald Ash Borer

Trees that are already infested show signs of canopy decline, and those who have lost 50% or more of the canopy most likely are untreatable. The current prescribed method of treatment is a systemic soil injection that will uptake an insecticide to the effected layer. Those Ash Trees that have not been effected could greatly benefit from Deep Root Fertilization.

Please call to schedule a free consultation with one of our Arborists if you have Ash trees that need an evaluation.

After the last several months of cleaning up tree branches or having trees removed that uprooted in Super storm Sandy, we know people are tired of dealing with damage caused by the storm, yet now it is more important than ever to consider the health and safety of your trees. Many trees suffered broken limbs, stress cracks, fractures, and root damage from the sustained high winds of Sandy, and other internal damage that cannot be seen from the ground that require the experienced eye of a certified tree expert to assess your trees for potential hazards. Signs of hazards to look for after a high-wind event are:

  •  Cracks in the trunk or in major limbs.
  • Root fractures and internal damage decreases a tree’s  ability to supply water and nutrients to the crown of the tree and can lead to severe decline or death of the tree.
  •  Trees that appear healthy can often have hidden decay or hollowing.

     One-sided or significantly leaning trees can indicate root problems.
    Trees with significant canopy loss require help to restore energy producing leaves – soil injections with a slow release fertilizer help the tree recover.

     

 

An ounce of prevention will cost you  less than a pound of cure. Proper pruning allows the wind to move through the tree’s canopy rather than provide resistance.

 

before and afer

Proactive measures, before future storms, are to remove weak trees, over-mature trees and those with significant decay as well as pruning and thinning of healthy trees.
