Spotlight: Joe Mcilvaine Tree & Lawn

May is a great month for tree care in the northeast, as the weather starts to warm up and the trees begin to bud. As an arborist at Joe McIlvaine Tree and Lawn, I am here to offer some tips and advice on how to care for your trees this month.

One of the biggest issues that homeowners face during this time of year is the emergence of pests and diseases. There are several pests and diseases that commonly affect trees in the northeast, such as emerald ash borer, Dutch elm disease, oak wilt, and Spotted Lantern Fly.

These pests and diseases can cause significant damage to your trees, and it is important to take action to control them as soon as possible. One of the best ways to prevent pests and diseases is to keep your trees healthy.

This means providing them with the right amount of water and nutrients, as well as pruning them regularly to remove any dead or diseased branches. Additionally, you should be on the lookout for any signs of infestation, such as holes in the trunk or leaves that are discolored or wilting.

If you do notice any signs of pest or disease infestation, it is important to act quickly. There are a number of different treatments that can be used to control these issues, such as insecticides, fungicides, and tree injections.

As an experienced arborist, I can help you determine the best course of action for your trees and provide you with the necessary treatments to keep them healthy. At the first sign of infestation or disease, it is important to act quickly and seek professional help.

At Joe McIlvaine Tree and Lawn, we are here to help you with all of your tree care needs. Give us a call today at 215-322-8394 to schedule a consultation.
