Act fast when you see signs of insect activity or unusual marks on the limbs or bark of you trees. Web-building, wood-boring, leaf-eating, sap-sucking and egg laying insects can overcome a tree rapidly.

The sweet drippings can also draw ants and other pests. Insects can cause hidden damage that can kill or ruin the look of your trees. Treatment may be spraying for insects or treating with granules.

Tree Maintenance & Tree Care
Trees that are well-shaped and healthy add value and beauty to both commercial and residential properties. Pruning, fertilization and pest control are important factors in determining the appearance and life span of your trees.
Natural topsoil is loaded with organic matter, beneficial microorganisms, and is loose and porous, allowing water to flow more easily down to the roots. Your home, unfortunately, is built on ground that’s usually been stripped of its healthy topsoil and then hard packed so that your home doesn’t sink. The perfect ground structure for your home, but not the most ideal option for your trees. That’s where our local tree experts come into play. Our fertilizing specialiss are here to help improve your home’s soil base by providing homeowners with tree fertilization services in the Boise Valley area. Let us help improve your yard’s soil and begin to turn the lives of your trees around.
Trees are fertilized in nature by the leaves and droppings on the forest floor which decompose and deliver nutrients to the root systems. In urban settings, the forest floor is replaced by lawns and manicured ground cover. Fallen leaves and grass clippings are removed, eliminating nature's source of tree fertilization. Further, topical applications of fertilizer must pass the turf roots which extract many of the nutrients before they reach the tree roots.
Our specialists know the correct type of fertilizer and the best time of year for application. Call today for a free inspection and estimate.
6 EASY WAYS TO BEST LOOKING TREES IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD
1. Plant the right tree in the right place. Dogwoods don't belong in full sun, Douglas-fir shouldn't be planted under the power lines.
2. Water and mulch newly planted trees. Mulch with a ring of wood chips extending out 2 feet from the base of the tree.
3. Protect trees from mowers, weed eaters, and other equipment. Avoid growing grass right up to the base of the tree.
4. The soil should be firm around the trunk, but don't pack the soil tightly when planting. Mulch around the tree to avoid soil compaction and root suffocation. Leave roots alone.
5. Prune according to accepted methods. Hire Boise Valley Tree Trimming when the job is too big.
6. If you think a tree needs to be topped, you might be better off cutting the tree down and planting a smaller variety.
