Threat to Denver Tree Health

Urban environments are extremely hostile places for shade trees to thrive.  Consider the effects of:

     • drought
     • construction damage
     • de-icing salt
     • vandalism
     • air pollution
     • soil compaction
     • lawnmower damage
     • weed whip damage

Stressors such as these can actually change a tree"s physiology predisposing it to invasion by disease and insects that it would otherwise be able to resist.

Many insect pests will only attack a tree that is under severe stress. By planting drought tolerant and/or native species and following proper planting, mulching, watering, and pruning techniques, Arbor Garden can help ensure that your trees remain healthy and able to fight off disease and insects.
