Call the Storm Damage Experts!

If you were hit with the storm this week and need help clearing damaged trees- give us a call! Please don’t ruin your weekend trying to do it yourself!

Storm damaged trees can be very dangerous to remove  especially if they are hung up on other trees or buildings. They typically react differently and  may not fall the way you think. Advanced rigging techniques are often necessary to safely remove the damaged trees.

Tree Planting

Tree PlantingSpring is a great time for tree planting. It allows the trees to get established before the heat of the summer sets in.

When it comes to planting trees  remember that, “Large strong trees come from small healthy trees”. When planting a tree the most important place to start is with the right tree for the right location.  It is important to consider the tree’s characteristics and requirements as well as soil composition, soil moisture and available space for the tree to grow in. If any of these factors are missing the health of that tree will be affected throughout its lifetime and the chance of failure in a storm increases dramatically.

We can help you decide the right location and type of tree for your property. We can source the best plant stock and make sure that it is planted properly.

Fertilizer ApplicationFertilizer Application

We offer Spring and Fall organic fertilizer applications to help keep your trees and shrubs healthy. We use an organic fertilizer that is injected into the upper layer of roots. For an even greater boost we can add mycorrhizae to the injection.

Winter Tree Work

You might tend to forget about your trees once the leaves fall and the ground is covered in snow. However, winter is a great time for tree work, especially if your trees require deadwood pruning or removal!

In the winter your gardens and turf grass are dormant and have a layer of snow over them to protect them! Also in the winter we can access your cottage property over the ice if you are on an island or we can fell trees onto the ice that need to be removed along your shoreline.

Winter Tree workCall today and our ISA Certified Arborists will be ready to help you! Call 705.657.6916 or email contact@logantreeexperts.com.

Emerald Ash Borer larvae in Peterborough ON

The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is in the Kawarthas! We have been removing dead ash trees and finding the borer larvae (photo below). Do not put off managing the ash trees on your property – protect them or remove them! The Borer has made a steady advance through Ontario since its arrival in Detroit in 2002, leaving devastation in its path.  Windsor, Toronto, Ottawa and all towns in between have struggling or dead ash trees due to EAB. Unfortunately no true ash tree (does not include Mountain Ash) is safe and will ultimately fall victim. However there are options for your ash trees. Read on to learn more……EAB on hand

Option One: Protection
One option for protection is the injection of TreeAzin, an approved biological insecticide. TreeAzin is a natural product made from Neem tree seeds. The Neem tree grows in India and many common household products such as bath soap are made from the seed extracts. As documented by the Canadian Forest Service, TreeAzin does not pose a significant risk to bees or other non-target species. TreeAzin is injected into the tree every two years and may only be applied by a licensed pesticide applicator and one who has been trained by the supplier of TreeAzin. Injections are completed from June until the end of August.

TreeAzin injectionOption Two: Removal
It is sad to think about removing our beautiful Ash trees but since it is inevitable that they will succumb to EAB, it is wise to remove them. Trees that are affected by EAB die quickly and are typically prone to collapse and breakage which can be a safety hazard. Also, the price for removal of a dead or unhealthy tree is greater than a healthy tree due to the increased risk to the Arborist and potential need for aerial lift equipment.

 

Call today to schedule a quote for TreeAzin injections or for the removal of your ash tree(s). We can have an ISA Certified Arborist look at your tree to let you know if it is healthy enough to protect.

Financial Assistance (City of Peterborough):
Attention all Peterborough residents with Ash trees. The CIty of Peterborough and TreeCanada are offering the TreeAzin treatment subsidy for private ash trees again this year (2016).

Information about the program and an application form is available on the TreeCanada releaf web page by clicking here. Click on the words ‘application form’. The form must be printed out, scanned and emailed to privateashtrees@peterborough.ca or dropped off at City Hall.

Contact us at 705-657-6916 or contact@logantreeexperts.com to help you through this process.
