The formula is injected directly into the root system for rapid absorption and maximum effectiveness. Follow-up visits are made to assess the tree’s condition and determine whether more treatments are necessary. For palm drenches, bi-monthly or quarterly visits are commonly scheduled.

Although there are many threats to trees in South Florida, the experts at Florida Environmental Pest Management have the knowledge, skill, and expertise to achieve tree beautification West Palm Beach. The advantages that trees provide include:
Palm trees make for iconic Florida landscaping; but a long-time disease has been making the news in the past year, due to widespread destruction. Ganoderma butt rot affects all palms and palm-like plants and also destroys conifers and hardwoods as well as softwoods. There is no known cure, and the disease is easily spread through wind-blown spores and contaminated soil. There are various species of the disease, including Ganoderma zonatum. The easiest way to identify a diseased tree is by spotting conks, which are white lumps that grow on the tree and then mature into brown woody brackets. Trees that are infected with this disease need to be removed as quickly as possible. Expert handling is recommended, since the soil is also infected. For many homeowners in South Florida, tree beautification West Palm Beach begins with getting rid of diseased trees.
Pine trees are susceptible to webworms. Pine seedlings 1 to 2 years old are most susceptible. The insect causes loss of growth, though it is uncommon for a tree to die from an infestation of webworms.
