If left unchecked insects and tree diseases can quickly turn your tree and shrubs into liabilities.

But having the keen eye of Local Arborist Jim Petrie and his team looking after the trees you love is essential - don't you think? And so proactive monitoring of your trees goes a long way to early detection and so preventing insects or diseases from potentially killing the trees you have come to love.

You should consider at intervals to have your trees serviced. Ptree Surgery will periodically monitor your trees for signs of a thinning canopy, or noticing the tree being undersized. Maybe the leaves have become discoloured unexpectedly. Or, you have noticed small holes in the trees bark from birds that might be sap sucking.


By letting our tree surgeon take a look, the problem can be diagnosed very quickly and so provide a treatment or management options to restore your tree back to good health. 

Pruning trees or shrubs will help increase light penetration and improve air circulation through the canopy.

You don't want to fertilise trees or shrubs that are suffering from leaf spot disease, unless, recommendations by soil test so you can correct the nutrient deficiency.
