Utah Tree & Shrub Care

With Us, You Only Have to Call Once

Guardian Pest & Lawn provides professional ornamental tree and shrub care in Utah. Trees and shrubs are under constant pressure from a variety of insects, bacteria, and fungi. In a natural setting, there are all kinds of checks and balances that keep insects at bay. In an urban environment, trees and shrubs become highly stressed due to roads, sidewalks, compact soils, poor drainage, restricted growing areas, pollution, etc. Unfortunately, trees and shrubs do not take care of themselves and, in an urban setting, are under far more pressure and experience far more root and plant stress. This makes them more susceptible to disease and insect damage. An annual deep root feeding will provide your trees and shrubs with a balanced blend of nutrients to stay healthy and help ensure strong, healthy, and vigorous root development.

Invest in your landscaping to keep it looking pristine. Call (801) 225-6000 or contact us online today.

Five Signs Your Trees or Shrubs Have a Disease or Insect Control Issue:

  • Seeing a lot of dead wood: Trees and shrubs will naturally have a few dead branches. If you start seeing more than usual, this may be a sign you have a problem.
  • Seeing decay or open holes in trees: Decaying and dead parts of a tree, including cracks and openings in the trunk or its branches, is an open invitation for pest problems.
  • Leaf damage: When leaves do not appear normal and you see leaf damage, it can be a sign you have problems.
  • Discovering disease and/or insect activity in your trees and shrubs: Upon close inspection of your trees and shrubs, if you see any signs of pest issues, it’s time to bring in an expert.
  • Mushrooms are growing on the trunk or roots: Mushrooms around or on trees means there’s a problem.

Deep Root Feeding

Deep root feeding in the spring or fall will help your trees and shrubs remain healthy, stimulate root growth, and strength its natural ability to resist most diseases. Guardian Pest & Lawn’s balanced deep root tree and shrub feedings go well beyond typical root feeding. Our custom blend of nitrogen, plant nutrients, bio-stimulants, as well as bio-nutrients are injected into the root zone of your trees and shrubs once a year to preserve them and maintain optimal health, color, and plant vigor. Our Utah tree and shrub care experts also do a systemic insect treatment to kill insects and prevent new infestations for the entire year at no additional cost to you. It is effective against a variety of insects, including aphids, emerald ash borers, leafminers, Japanese beetles, and more for an entire year.

The best defense against disease and insect damage is a healthy tree. Late winter (February, March, and April) and late fall (October and November) are the optimal times for deep root feedings, but they can be done anytime.

Tree & Shrub Insect Control & Treatment

Trees and shrubs in decline or under stress are much more susceptible to insect damage. Guardian Pest & Lawn offers preventative and curative insect tree and shrub applications. These will not prevent or kill all pests. Sometimes there just isn’t a preventative option available for a specific pest, or it’s too late in the season to use preventative options. If that’s the case, we time the curative treatment to coincide with the specific pest issue.

The best way to defend trees and shrubs form pests is to keep them in optimal health. Healthy trees and shrubs do a better job naturally defending themselves against pests. That is why we highly recommend deep root feeding once a year.

Tree & Shrub Disease Treatment

The best defense against tree and shrub disease is to keep them in the best health possible. An unhealthy tree is much more likely to have disease issues than a healthy tree. For this reason, we strongly recommend deep root feeding on an annual basis. This will help protect your investment and increase the probability that your trees and shrubs remain healthy and less prone to disease.

Specific tree varieties are more susceptible to disease than others. Certain types of trees may require targeting measures because of the way fungi spores spread in the spring. Most diseases that impact trees and shrubs can be controlled through well timed treatments.

If you believe your trees or shrubs have disease issues, please call us at (801) 225-6000 for a free evaluation.
