Disease and Pest Control

Tree insects and diseases can be costly problems.

Maple Hill uses an integrated approach to managing insects and diseases that begins with maintaining tree health using practices including pruning and creating optimal soil conditions for tree growth. Monitoring and periodic inspections are critical to identifying pest infestations before they reach damaging levels.

Maple Hill's Certified Arborists are trained to recognize beneficial insects that will help naturally suppress pest populations. When treatments are necessary, Maple Hill implements safe and effective solutions like applying organic or synthetic materials.


Comprehensive tree disease and pest control solutions for homeowners.

Diseases and pests can be detrimental to trees in the urban environment. Since a healthy tree can defend against most insects and diseases, our ISA Certified Arborists will focus on the cause rather than just the symptoms. Our first step is to identify and monitor both harmful pests and beneficial insects.
