• Currently over 65 stately elms under our care have survived the devastating effects of Dutch Elm Disease.
  • Prevention of Dutch Elm Disease begins with pruning. Elms should be pruned during the dormant season to eliminate dead or diseased wood. Deep-root fertilization will enhance the health of Elms.

Dutch Elm Disease (DED)
  • DED is a lethal tree disease caused by an aggressive fungus.
  • The disease is primarily transmitted by a beetle that feeds on the branches.

Tree Injection
  • To protect a tree from infection, a fungicide must be evenly and completely distributed throughout the tree.
  • The best way to get such distribution is by macro-injection into the root flares of the tree.
  • Injections should be performed every 3 years minimum.
