  • Clean Out Flower Beds
  • Band Your Trees For Cankerworms
  • Plan Ahead For Spring Fungicidal Treatments For Your Trees
  1. Treat For Late Season Defoliators 
    Defoliators are wormy creatures that eat leaves from trees. Late season defoliators are spotted typically in late summer / early fall before leaves fall from trees. These types of worms are damaging to a tree because they eat the specific portion of a tree that aids heavily in the photosynthesis process.
  2. Schedule Deep Root Fertilization For Trees 
    Deep root fertilization is essential to the overall health and well being of trees! This type of plant health care treatment can take place in both the fall and springtime of year. Schedule your fall deep root fertilization easily by clicking the link here. 
  3. Clean Out Flower Beds
    The fall season is a great time to clean out those once beautiful summer blooms. Remove dying or dead flowers or growing weeds from flower beds. Preparing your flower bed now will help ensure a beautiful growing season to come!
  4. Band Your Trees For Cankerworms
    Throughout years past, cankerworms have been prevalent on oak trees throughout different areas of North Carolina. Placing adhesive bands on your oak trees stop cankerworms in their tracks. The best time to bank trees is in the fall before cankerworms make their way up oak trunks.
  5. Plan Ahead For Spring Fungicidal Treatments For Your Trees 
    When it comes to fungal infections, it’s all about prevention versus eradication. Treatment must commence in fall and continue throughout the early spring to ensure optimal results.
