Like humans, trees, shrubs and ground cover are susceptible to an array of diseases that can cause stress and negatively affect their health. Often, they express health problems through physical appearance. The experts at Wonderland Tree Care + Landscapes carefully examine for signs of disease and resulting health issues to diagnose and prescribe treatment.
Tree and shrub diseases include fungi, fungal-like microorganisms, viruses and bacteria and can be infectious and non-infectious. Diseases common to Long Island include shot hole disease on Laurel shrubs, a variety of leaf diseases affecting ornamental fruit trees, needlecast fungal diseases on evergreens, Dutch Elm disease, and leaf blights on Boxwoods and Pachysandra.
Our team can perform both preventive and curative treatments to the foliage or via trunk injection. Depending on the disease, treatment may require multiple applications per year or in three-year intervals.
When you observe signs of disease, contact us to schedule a site visit to have a qualified arborist diagnose and recommend a disease-treatment plan.
