Tree Health


Tree Health and Legacy Care Services

Ensure the health and longevity of even your oldest trees by working with experienced arborists from Advantage Tree Service. 

Tree legacy services are services that will help change the way we view trees. Many homeowners today view trees as liabilities. Our goal is to transform that thinking so that people view our trees as assets.

We focus on the services that will provide the most impact for the lowest cost. This means that there are many effective services that we will NOT offer. For instance we will not spray trees or fertilize trees. While there are some extremely effective practices that involve these methods, we feel our resources are better spent in other areas.

We focus on the following:

Emerald Ash Borer Treatments

There are so many Ash trees in our area that will be effected by the invasive emerald ash borer. We believe our arborists will develop effective plans to maximize the chance of keeping many of these trees alive so they can continue to benefit our properties and environment.

Borer Protection

There are many native pests that are secondary problems that finish off many of our desirable species. When we are trying to nurse a tree back to health we will first focus on the primary problem which is usually root related. After that we may have to protect the tree against these borers so it can recover. Our hope when using this product is that we will eventually be able to let the tree defend itself within a couple years after application.

MicroNutrient Deficiency Injections

There are many issues with our urban soil and its relationship with our trees. Anytime we remove the tree from its natural environment we are inviting opportunity for problems. This is an evil that is unavoidable if we want well maintained residential properties with trees! When the soil can not provide a micro nutrient that may result in decline, we can step in and address this difficeincy while we work on the compaction and soil issues. Our hope when using this service is to nurse the tree back to health so that it can eventually extract these nutrients from the soil naturally!

Fire Blight

Many of the beautiful flowering trees in our landscapes are effected by this devastating disease. The trees that get fire blight are often the centerpiece of the landscapes so we feel that if we can address this disease we can save homeowner the hassle of redoing their landscape! There will certainly be some cultural practices that need to happen in conjunction with these applications. Our arborist will diligently examine the cost of these treatments in comparison with the benefits the tree provide to ensure the best solution.

Oak Wilt & Burr Oak Blight

Oaks tend to be the most desirable species in our communities. These majestic trees live long lives and provide benefits to our environment, our mental health, and our properties. Due to the fact that these trees are so valuable we wanted to be able to protect them against the main diseases we see in them. Our arborist will diligently examine the cost of these treatments in comparison with the benefits the trees provide to ensure the best solution.

Dutch Elm Disease

This long lasting devastating disease has been killing Elm trees since the 70’s. Many times when the disease flares up in certain areas we will find ancient elm trees that need protected. Another case where this treatment would be beneficial is when an elm tree develops into a key tree in the landscape. When the tree becomes a staple that the homeowner wants we may decide to protect this tree!

Tree Support Systems

Many times we can prolong the life of a tree by providing supplemental support to limbs that may have weak unions or splits. We usually use these as the last resort. Often times the appearance of the tree will be devastated when a large limb is removed. This service provides a less invasive and often times less expensive approach to saving the tree.

Proper care and maintenance can help to improve the appearance and longevity of the trees on your property. Trees that are properly cared for can provide a lifetime of beauty and value for your home or business. We can provide an in-depth analysis of these outdoor assets and put together an action plan to maintain and help control the growth and development for years to come.
