Wachtel is Professional Arboriculture

By: Jeffrey P. Hagfors, Certified Arborist

Winter 2003 Newsletter in Adobe PDF format It takes great knowledge, thought and experience to properly diagnose and treat complicated tree health problems. At Wachtel we are committed to maintaining the highest level of professional care to trees and shrubs. With thirteen Certified Arborists, and over 260 years of combined experience, we are the leaders in professional arboriculture.

No longer acceptable are the shoot-from-the-hip approach of “cover sprays” that are used in landscape maintenance. Pesticide applications need to be “target specific.” That means you have to be applying it to a pest that is actually there, with a pesticide that is properly dosed and labeled for use on the tree and the pest.. In addition, one must be able to sift through all the Magic Wand and Secret Elixir arboricultural nonsense that is being recommended to owners of trees. There are a lot of tree treatments that are manufactured that simply don’t do what they claim to. Some do more harm than good.

Be wary of free arboricultural advice given to you by the guy who sprays your lawn, or the second cousin to someone who works in a Family Tree Removal Service. Check with a professional before buying some curative product at the Mega-Plex Garden Center.

Call upon your Experienced and Degreed Wachtel Certified Arborist. We will properly diagnose the problem, schedule a proper treatment plan and restore your trees to their full grandeur. Honesty, integrity and accuracy are the fundamental values that have been the heart of Wachtel Tree Science and Service for over 68 years. At Wachtel, we are the Professional Arborists who perform Professional Arboriculture.
