Tree Disease Treatment
Your landscape is an important contribution to our urban forest; unfortunately, they may be susceptible to disease as a result. Some plant diseases may be merely cosmetic while others may be very detrimental to plant health. Regular examinations by our Certified Arborists will help you make informed decisions on the health of your landscape. Plant Health Care recommendations are offered with plant health in mind and treatments are applied by professional applicators.

Emerald Ash Borer Treatment
Has your ash tree been protected again Emerald Ash Borer (EAB)? This destructive pest continues to have a huge impact in our urban forests. Maintaining a quality treatment program for your ash trees will keep them healthy and attractive. While it may not be practical to maintain treatment for all of your ash trees, our Certified Arborists can help you select the strongest specimens to receive treatment. By providing honest assessments and quality treatments, we strive to provide recommendations that are in the best interest of your landscape and budget.
Soil is the key to plant health! We offer soil analysis services including a full report with recommendations for improvement. Correcting soil nutrient and composition deficiencies can make a significant improvement to the health and beauty of your landscape.
Many of your landscape plants will benefit from regular fertilization. Our low nitrogen soil injected fertilizer is designed to provide appropriate nutrients, build soil, and promote a healthy amount of annual growth to keep your landscape strong and vigorous. Your higher value trees may also be suitable for trunk injected nutrients which can make a tremendous impact on their health and beauty.
Cracked sidewalks and driveways from exposed roots, and tree roots growing into your septic system can lead to expensive problems. Give us a call today to let us find the solution that’s right for your specific situation.
Have you noticed roots circling around the base of your trees? Perhaps one of your landscape trees just doesn’t seem to be thriving as well as the others? Many trees experience girdling roots due to improper planting, compacted soils, or limited root space. Cassity Tree Service is one of the few companies in the area that offer air spading technology as a potential solution. This process allows us to examine the root systems of your landscape in a minimally invasive way and reveal proper planting depth, girdling roots, or embedded objects below the soil line. This procedure is also useful in root pruning for construction, sidewalk installation, disease management, and soil decompaction. Even trees that are quite young can have considerable root issues; let us help you protect your investment!
Tree Preservation for New Construction
One of our Certified Arborists will conduct an inventory and analysis of the property to identify existing conditions and potential threats to the trees before development. We will provide recommendations for removal, preservation, or retention along with suggested precautionary measures for protection of the retained trees.
