Common Plant and Tree Problems

The biggest problem with trees is usually water-related. Harsh summer heat, combined with high winds can quickly evaporate the water from a tree, leaving the leaves wilted, scorched, or worse, dead, and falling. All these environmental conditions can stress a tree, and here at Monkeyman’s, we say a stressed tree is a diseased tree.

A careful examination of your wilting tree is the first step in diagnosing plant health problems. Dead leaves, brown or yellow spots, and strange bumps should all be examined. Thankfully, our ISA-certified Arborists have over 20 years of pest and disease identification.

Below are some common plant diseases and pests that our arborists mitigate on a daily basis:

Plant Health Care

Plant health care is something we offer to clients throughout the Portland metro area. Many of our customers ask, “Why is my tree dying?”?

We can diagnose any plant diseases or pests that may be affecting the health of your trees with the help of an ISA Certified Arborist. In addition, Monkeymans Tree Service arborists will prescribe a plant healthcare program that will help your tree grow and thrive. A service we provide is root spading, which allows us to remove access dirt from trees that are planted too deep. For the trees to grow to their full potential, we can also apply organic fertilizer and compost.

To evaluate the health and safety of your trees, our ISA-Certified Arborist can also conduct a tree risk assessment. Just call us today at (503)-358-8754 and we can make sure your trees are happy and healthy.
