Lawn Care Services

If you have a lawn care service spray a pre-emergent herbicide on your turf to control the growth of weeds this growing season, know that these chemicals can have a deleterious effect on trees.
Feeder roots on trees are shallow ( usually within the top 12 inches of soil) and can absorb the active ingredient in the herbicide. Many times tree damage goes unnoticed or is mistaken for insect or disease damage.
A consulting arborist can help you identify damage to your trees and recommend a therapeutic solution to help the tree regain its former vigor. Check the website of the American Society of Consulting Arborists, www.asca-consultants.org ,for an arborist in your area.
