Pest & Disease Treatment

There are hosts of insects and diseases that are affecting the shade and street trees within almost all communities throughout the United States.  Some of these tree pests include:

  • Emerald Ash Borer
  • Asian Longhorned Beetle
  • Hemlock Woolly Adelgid
  • Pine Bark Beetle

and tree diseases including:

  • Sudden Oak Death
  • Oak Wilt, Root Rot
  • Dutch Elm Disease

These pests and diseases are threatening the health of the trees in our yards, parks, cemeteries, campuses and public greenspaces. Controlling these pests and restoring health and vigor to these shade and ornamental trees are of high priorities to private and municipal landowners alike, and have been challenges for arborists over the years.

Research has brought about a technology that allows arborists to effectively and efficiently control and often eradicate these pests and diseases. The process of tree trunk injection has been developed and refined over the last few years – particularly by a company named Arborjet®; they have created a variety of tree injection systems that are extremely effective in delivering the needed treatment to the affected tree, concentrating the treatment where it’s needed and limiting environmental exposure. Injection treatments use less pesticide compared to the more traditional treatment methods. Unlike spraying or soil applications, Arborjet’s system injects directly into the tree, limiting any impact to your family, the applicator, and the environment around you.

FORECON, Inc. has a staff trained to operate all of the Arborjet injection systems, and have worked for private landowners, municipalities, as well as the National Park Service in controlling tree pests that were destroying valuable trees.  We are experienced, thorough, and effective in tree pest and tree disease control.
