To restore tree health, sick trees must be treated.
North Texas has some of the most unusual weather patterns. Southlake Texas isn’t the only place where you can find a sick or diseased tree. February’s weather patterns are very unpredictable with temperatures dropping to the low 30s. The temperature on the same day can rise as high as 80deg. This can be a significant stress for the spring regeneration.
It can affect the opening of flowering in the system, causing delays in the Foliage mechanism in tree genetics.
In 2018, there were many Shumard oaks suffering from this condition. While it is not a sign of sickness, this can cause tree dieback and deformity. Weather phenomenon that affected Southlake’s Savanna Post oaks also affected Southlake.

Proper Tree Watering
Water is essential for most trees below five years of age. To ensure healthy growth during their first years. Many nurseries will provide a water bag to place at the base or root of your tree. A young tree may need 20 to 100 gallons water per week depending upon soil, season and environment.
Proper Tree Feeding
Trees require food just like humans. Mother Nature provides most of the nutrients the tree needs from the soil. We need to do very little as property managers or homeowners when it comes to natural forest trees. With urban plants, however, we may need to take more care. Deep root fertilization in Southlake Texas can be a wonderful way to keep your trees strong and healthy especially in their early years.
Tree Insect Control
Tree insects decimate and kill thousands of trees every year in North Texas. The majority of urban Forest planted trees in Southlake are affected by this pest. The homeowner’s lack of education can make all the difference. A simple deep root injection once a year is enough to keep your trees healthy and free from tree disease. Our insecticides have a great track record in eliminating pests from your trees. You may not have to inject the insecticide every year in some cases. A mild injection with half as much chemical can be administered to keep your tree vaccinated annually. Our goal is to get the larvae to die but not damage the tree’s cambium and/or Xylem. This is what our tree pesticide does.
