Our tree and shrub care in Thornton targets local insects and diseases. We are diligent with our insect treatments, because bugs like black vine weevils, lace bugs, and Japanese beetles can come reappear even a few days after a treatment. We train our Lawn Doctor tree service technicians to handle all the bugs and diseases that could affect shrub care. We know how to eliminate them and follow up with a maintenance program to ensure they are gone for good!
An often overlooked but vitally important part of tree service is the winterization of certain species. There are some trees like evergreens that are susceptible to Thornton’s winter winds drying them out. They lose their moisture, that doesn’t just hurt their appearance—it could carry health problems into the growing season. That could potentially cause problems for a few years. Our tree care professionals apply an anti-desiccant spray in the fall to guard against dehydration and save those valuable trees.
Landscape beds with trees and shrubs provide a classic look to your landscape. But the weeds that grow in there not only look bad, they compete with your trees and shrubs for vital nutrients in Thornton’s soil. We spray those beds with a pre-emergent spray, eliminating them before they can develop root systems and get stronger. Simply pulling the weeds doesn’t often work, because even a small piece of root left behind can regenerate. By eliminating weeds, the plants thrive.
