Tree Treatments Work! 

EMERALD ASH BORER

Studies show that  treatment performed every two years is over 90% effective in preventing emerald ash borer from killing an ash tree.

Untreated vs. Treated

APPLE SCAB

A tree with apple scab disease loses most of its leaves by summer. A treated tree continues to be healthy and beautiful throughout the season.  

Untreated vs. Treated

Insect and Disease Management

Soil injection treatments

For effective control of insect damage within the tree, treatments are injected directly into the root system using a soil probe. Annually applied treatments provide long-lasting systemic protection against insects such as 

  • bronze birch borer

  • emerald ash borer

  • plum borer

  • linden borer

  • two-lined chestnut borer

  • elm leaf beetle

  • Japanese beetle

 

Trunk injection treatments

​Trunk injections offer a faster, more direct way to get products into trees. These treatments work quickly and are long lasting. Trunk injections provide multi-year control and often are the best solution large-diameter trees. Hoppe Tree Service uses trunk injection to control nutrient deficiencies and common tree diseases like:

  • emerald ash borer disease

  • Dutch elm disease

  • oak wilt disease

  • verticillium wilt, and more

 

Foliar sprays

Foliar applications are sprayed onto leaf surfaces, often 2-3 times during the season, to protect leaves and needles against fungal diseases and leaf chewing or sucking insects. They can be very effective against

  • apple scab diseases

  • Rhizospharea needlecast disease

  • Cytospora canker

  • Ash Anthracnose fungus

  • Diplodia needleblight

  • Dothistroma needleblight

  • Magnolia scale

  • Fire blight

  • Leaf miners

Tree Root Health Treatments

BioPak Root Fertilization

Soil injection delivers beneficial root zone bacteria and a balanced, slow release of fertilizer mixture directly to the root systems of trees. We pump a water-based solution into the root zone using a pressurized system, which provides a better fertilization result than tree spikes or granular products. It promotes plant recovery from stress, reverses mineral deficiencies that cause poor color, and promotes growth for new and old trees.

Root Aeration

Our air spade blows compressed air into the root system of the tree to lighten and aerate the soil. This increases the porosity of the soil structure and makes the soil profile more favorable for the growth of fine nutrient- and water-absorbing roots.

Girdling Root Removal

Stem girdling roots slowly strangle trees to death. We excavate around the trunk of the tree and prune the offending roots to give the tree a chance of survival.
