Tree & Shrub
Trees and shrubs are arguably the most important features in your yard. You plant them hoping they will be around for generations to come so it’s important to take care of them.
You want to be sure these valuable investments are protected against the forces of nature. That’s why our full-season tree and shrub care program consists of six applications that will promote root growth, improve foliage, and fend off pests and disease.
Tree and Shrub Program
Early Spring: An application of balanced fertilizer will promote color, health, and give them a boost as they come out of dormancy.
Late Spring: Dormant oil is applied to trees and shrubs to help kill overwintering insects and their eggs.
Early Summer: Liquid insecticide is applied to control disease-carrying insects that feed on your trees and shrubs.
Late Summer: As summer winds down we will apply another liquid insecticide to keep insects away.
Early Fall: As fall begins we will apply dormant oil to protect your trees and shrubs from overwintering insects, larvae, and eggs that will harm your trees in the spring.
Late Fall: A last-minute fertilizer is applied before winter to promote root growth and help the plant prepare for winter.
Each round of our program is tailor-made specifically for your trees and shrubs. Our trained professionals will walk you through step-by-step and keep you constantly updated on our progress.

Emerald Ash Borer Program
Native to Asia, the Emerald Ash Borer has devastated ash trees all across the country. Since 2002 these beetles have wiped out almost 100 million trees. Yes, they are here in Buffalo too and stand to threaten 900 million of our own ash trees.
The EAB is spread far and wide through the transportation of firewood and other infested wood products. So please, do not move firewood unless it has been heat treated.
These pests destroy trees in their larval stage. The larvae feed beneath the bark and cut off the transportation of water and nutrients up the tree. This begins a long slow death for the ash tree that could drag out for 2-4 years.
Signs that your ash tree is infested are:
- Yellowing of leaves from the top down
- New growth sprouting around the trunk
- Canopy dieback
Luckily you don’t have to sit back and watch your stately ash tree slowly succumb to these green insects. Seasonal Lawncare can protect your trees with a special trunk injection that will kill the Emerald Ash Borer and protect your investment.
If you suspect your trees are infested with the Emerald Ash Borer then contact us immediately at (716) 675-4000.
