Tree Disease Control

Trees are susceptible to different types of diseases that can harm their health and eventually destroy them. Some of these diseases can be controlled, while others cannot. Before you can prevent further spread of the disease that is affecting your tree, you must first identify the disease. The best way to do so is by contacting your local arborist, like those here at Craig’s Tree Service. We can help you both identify the disease as well as make a plan for treatment or removal.

Fungal diseases are some of the most rampant conditions facing trees. While fungi play a necessary role in recycling organic material that has died, some varieties of fungi can actually harm trees. They do so through by multiplying in abundance, damaging both the health and appearance of trees. By selecting the proper site to plant your trees and through properly maintaining the landscape surrounding them, you can reduce this risk. For questions regarding tree disease control, please call Craig’s Tree Service at (803) 648-0926 today.
