More than 3.2 million acres of American trees die by diseases and pests every year. Approximately 45% of tree mortality is caused by disease.
Trees that become diseased or infested require expensive trimming or, worse yet, removal. But don’t let it get to that point. The most effective way to avoid these situations is prevention. That’s where tree health care comes in. Without regular care, your trees can easily grow weak, hindering its ability to fight off diseases and pests. They will decay, develop dying branches, and lose their beautiful green color. They will be easily blown down in storms or strong winds.

Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
What are the signs my tree needs care?
If you see any of the following, your tree may be ailing and require immediate care:
Even if you are unsure that your tree needs care, it is best to give us a call so we can take a look.
How often should I get my trees inspected for health issues?
Obviously, your trees should be inspected right away if you notice any signs of disease, infestation, or decay (see the signs from the above FAQ). If you do not notice any signs, we recommend getting inspections at least once a year.
What can I do if my tree is already heavily diseased, infested, or decayed?
Preventative measures like soil care, fertilization, and root collar excavation may not help a tree that is already too far gone. Fortunately, Golden Valley Tree Service offers tree trimming services, which are often the best remedy for removing the areas of your tree being impacted. If tree trimming is not enough, we can offer tree removal as well. It is possible that neither measure is needed. Call us to get an inspection, and our arborists will recommend the course of action that will mitigate the amount of damage to your tree.
