Tree Care in Northern Colorado
When trees and shrubs are flourishing, they can make a big impact on your landscape—but maintaining healthy plants in the Colorado climate can be frustrating. At American Turf & Tree Care, we have spent over 40 years treating trees in Colorado for disease, insect infestations, or just general wear and tear from harsh conditions. Because every tree is different, our expert technicians are trained to provide individualized care to ensure they receive just the right amount of nutrients and insect prevention to thrive.
Our Comprehensive Tree Care Program
Trees and shrubs in Colorado must battle insects and diseases that come with the changing seasonal weather conditions. Our technicians target these risks and prevent future recurrences with our sprays, providing healthy results for your landscape.
Northern Colorado's soils suffer from alkalinity, which can cause iron in the soil to be unusable to plants. This limits their ability to make the chlorophyll needed for photosynthesis and can lead to yellowing leaves and weakening branches. While simple watering won’t fix the damage of Iron Chlorosis, our tree care experts can!
To treat the diseases, we will:
- Address pH imbalances and iron deficiencies in your soil to give your trees and shrubs the foundation they need to be healthy at each point in the season.
- Provide injections to protect your trees against the elements, strengthening them against diseases that can spoil a beautiful landscape in spring.
In Colorado, your landscape may be put at risk by larvae of wood-boring insects such as Emerald Ash Borer and Lilac Ash Borer. These invasive insects tunnel into the trunks and lower branches of your ash trees and wound the heartwood and important areas below the bark—this interferes with a plant's ability to uptake water and nutrients. Our local experts are here to provide complete protection against Emerald Ash Borer and all wood-boring insects!
Common signs of Ash Borer damage are:
- Bark deformities.
- Dead branches, thinning tree crowns, yellow foliage.
- Water sprouts/shoots growing from the trunk.
Our winter tree care program is completed in the fall and properly prepares your trees for the damaging effects of winter weather, such as desiccation or dry-out damage.
Winter Watering Services
Aside from sealing in moisture, you can also help prevent winter damage by making sure that your trees are properly hydrated. Our winter program includes regular visits throughout the season by our technicians to ensure your trees get enough water and do not suffer from dehydration.
Watering in the winter is ideal for:
- Woody plants with shallow root systems
- Shade trees
- Evergreen shrubs
- And more!

Measuring Your Tree For Your Free Quote
To give you the most accurate quote for your tree service and provide the best care possible, we may ask you to provide your tree's DBH (diameter at breast height). This will help us anticipate the proper dosages based on the size of your tree.
Here's how you measure the DBH:
- At 4-1/2 feet above the ground, wrap a measuring tape around the trunk of the tree.
- Divide the measurement by 3.14 to get the diameter. This is your DBH.
If your tree has multiple stems, measure the diameter of the tree at the narrowest point between the root flare and the split of the stems.
