Integrated Pest Management

At Forester Tree Service we take an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach to protect trees and shrubs on our clients’ properties. IPM is designed to make certain we achieve our goal of suppressing pest problems while minimizing negative environmental impacts.

Trees in urban environments provide many benefits to our communities. However, an urban setting isn’t always the most conducive environment for a tree to thrive i.e., confined root space, salt, competition for water, compacted soil, and pollution to name a few.

These abiotic stresses can damage a tree by themselves or cause a tree to become more susceptible to a pathogen or pest.

 Treatment methods include:

Spray Application

– Soil Application

– Trunk Injection
