Tree Services & Treatments


As a Board Certified Master Arborist,  I am qualified and experienced in treating all diseases and insect pests that bother your landscape plants.   What I have decided to specialize in for the last 10 years is those diseases and pests that can be controlled and treated for by trunk injection.   This  treatment process utilizes the Direct-Inject Tree injection System, pictured on the left, from ArborSystems. (;  It is the ONLY “no-drill” tree injection system on the market!  It allows me to put the necessary product directly where it is needed for the problem we are treating.  This could be directly under the bark using the patented “Wedgle” needles.  Or it could be injected into the outer growth rings at a 1/2″, 3/4″, or 1 1/2″ depth with the new “portle” needles.  An experienced certified arborist should be making the determination of which method will work better for your particular problem.  I will be describing many of these situations and showing you actual treatments throughout my website.  Contact me directly for help with whatever is bothering your landscape plants. Choose the topic you are having problems with in the table of contents on the left.  You will find this website to be an excellent source of information about how to identify the problem you might be having and then how I would treat for it.  This site will be updated very often on a regular basis.  So ask questions – either on this site, or by contacting me by email or phone.
