When you think about iconic American plants, oak trees are high on the list. Throughout the country you can find several hundred different species. Some regions have specific indigenous varieties, and California features some of the most breathtaking.
Unfortunately, Sudden Oak Death has begun to strike the California Coast Live Oak. This disease works insidiously for years until finally showing symptoms. Then, the tree only has a month to live. The only way to prevent this is to get treatment.
We use nutrient enrichment, fungicide and pruning to help you manage your tree’s health and stave off Sudden Oak Death.
Pruning is the optimal way to keep and nurture the structure of your oak tree. Timely and proper trimming and pruning can keep your tree from developing diseases and boost the lifespan of your tree. Pruning also helps with your tree’s natural defenses against Sudden Oak Death.
