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
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.

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 root feeder. Annually applied treatments provide long-lasting systemic protection against insects such as
bronze birch borer
emerald ash borer
two-lined chestnut borer
elm leaf beetle
Trunk Injection Treatments
Trunk injections are injected directly into the living tissue of the tree with industry-leading technology and products. They work quickly and provide multi-year protection and are often the best solution for larger diameter trees. Hoppe Tree Service uses trunk injections to control insects, diseases and nutrient deficiencies like:
emerald ash borer, bronze birch borer, and two-lined chestnut borer
Dutch elm disease, oak wilt, and more
tree chlorosis and more

Foliar applications are sprayed onto the bark or leaf surface, often 2-3 times a season. They protect new leaves from diseases or can be used to reduce damaging insect populations present within the tree. They can be very effective against:
apple scab diseas
dothistroma and diplodia needleblights
leaf minors, aphids and more
rusts, fire blight, powdery mildew and more
Root Health Treatments
BioPak Root Fertilization
Our fertilizer blends are delivered via root feeder throughout the root zone. These fertilizer blends incorporate slow-release nutrients to improve growing conditions, soil fertility, and water holding capacity by incorporating essential nurtrients, 8 chelated micronutrients, organic soil amendments, beneficial bacteria, and humic acids to the soil profile. It improves plant health and recovery from stress, reverses mineral deficiencies that cause poor leaf color, and promotes root and plant growth for new and old trees.
Plant Growth Regulators
Growth regulators are used to extend the life of trees and shrubs by slowing the vegetative growth, allowing the tree to redirect energy from canopy growth into defense mechanisms for increased resistance to insects and diseases, along with increases in fine fibrous absorbing roots, reducing the effects of urban stresses. Hoppe Tree Service offers two plant growth regulator treatments. One is a basal drench for trees that lasts for 3 growing seasons. The other treatment is an annual foliar spray for shrubs, smaller trees, and bedding plants that can reduce growth by 30-70% while enhancing the color and vigor of the plant.
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.
