Des Moines Insect and Disease Management

The first line of defense against pests and diseases is plant health. The healthier a tree or shrub, the better able it is to naturally fend off insects and diseases. Our primary focus is preventive pest management through overall tree care.

Even with preventive maintenance, sometimes serious maladies can affect your trees. When this is the case, our Arborists will evaluate the specific pest and overall tree condition and recommend the most effective and environmentally sensitive management approach. State-of-the-art biological and low-toxicity materials, such as horticultural soaps and oils are among the low-impact tools we use to manage pests.
