Block Insect Damage Before it Happens
In Colorado, your landscape may be put at risk by larvae of wood-boring insects, which tunnel into the trunks and lower branches of your ash trees and wound the heartwood and important areas below the bark. Don't let insects put your landscape at risk! Find out how annual tree control treatments from American Turf & Tree Care can keep your trees and shrubs protected – give us a call at 970-352-7711 today.
Several species of these destructive pests are native to Colorado, including the lilac/ash borer, a wood-boring caterpillar that can tunnel through the lower trunk of your trees, and various ash bark beetles that can devastate damaged or overshaded branches. Another invasive species is the Emerald Ash Borer, which tunnels below bark and produces wounds that interfere with trees' ability to uptake water and nutrients. The damage Emerald Ash Borers cause is progressive, and because these insects reproduce quickly and without a lot of natural predators, they can cause death in large expanses of healthy ash trees within a few years.
Don't Let Disease Ravage Your Landscape
It's easy to feel helpless when the health of your trees and shrubs starts declining. Yellowing leaves and weakening branches can be a sign of tree disease that you can't fix with simple watering. Diseases like Iron Chlorosis are common in trees and shrubs in Northern Colorado due to insufficient iron. The alkalinity of the soils common in Colorado yards can cause iron in the soil to be unusable to plants, limiting the ability of your trees and shrubs to make chlorophyll, needed for photosynthesis.
How We Protect Your Trees
Our certified tree care experts can 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. We also offer tree injections and dormant oil treatments to protect your trees against the elements, strengthening them against diseases that can spoil a beautiful landscape in spring.
If you're ready to protect your trees and shrubs from disease all year long, call American Turf & Tree Care at 970-352-7711 now!
Safeguard Your Landscape From Harsh Winter Weather
The two biggest problem areas for your landscape in the winter stem from the roots of your plants. Colorado winters are pretty dry, and the colder the temperatures, the more difficult it is for roots to soak up the already minimal water. Lack of moisture in your soil and atmospheric humidity can do some serious damage to plant root systems.
When you call on American Turf & Tree Care for winter tree care services in Northern Colorado, you'll get an expert touch that will protect your trees during frosty winters.
Give Your Trees the Moisture they Need with Winter Watering
Colorado's dry, cold winters put grass, trees, and shrubs at risk for dehydration. In fact, tree and shrub roots in Colorado tend to be shallow-rooted for the dry climate and are desperately in need of water. The tree care professionals at American Turf & Tree Care know how much water your landscape needs. With our winter watering service, our technicians will visit once a month, 5-6 times per season – spraying up to 1500 gallons if necessary. Did you know? Trees can uptake water up to -25 degrees Fahrenheit!
Winter watering is ideal for:
- Woody plants with shallow root systems
- Shade trees
- Evergreen shrubs
- Grass – especially newly established lawns
- And more!
Prepare Your Landscape for Spring with Winter Tree Care
Trees and shrubs are at risk of drying out during the winter months through a process called desiccation. Frozen soil makes it impossible for roots to soak up much-needed water. As a result, these plants must rely on the water stored in their stems and leaves. Desiccation can result in permanent damage.
Avoid winter lawn damage with our Colorado winter tree care services, sealing in moisture to keep your plants hydrated through the use of anti-desiccant sprays, a waxy substance that seals in moisture for the season.
All of our seasonal services are perfectly timed. We track the weather to ensure your landscape receives the appropriate amount of water and only apply anti-desiccants once the plants are dormant. Excess watering or spraying too early in the season can cause water to become trapped in the leaves resulting in damage to the plant. When you choose American Turf & Tree Care for your winter lawn care in Colorado, you can rest assured that your lawn is taken care of year-round. We guarantee it.
