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.
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.
