Aphids

Aphids are tiny insects that feed off trees and new plant growth. Aphids come in a variety of colors and vary in size. They feed in clusters by sucking sap from the tree, secreting a sticky fluid in the process causing leaves to curl..Aphids breed quickly and will continue to feed on a tree until they have killed the plant before moving on to the next.

If you notice the leaves of your Las Vegas trees curling inward or notice a cluster of small lice-like insects, chances are high that your tree has an aphid infestation. Other signs of an aphid problem include sticky sap like fluid on leaves and surrounding areas of the tree.

Spider Mites

Spider mites are tiny arachnids that feed off sap from the bottom of tree leaves. Spider mites are difficult to see with extremely high reproduction rates, often enabling infestations to quickly spread.Spider mites cause leaves to appear yellowed with a silk-like webbed substance between them.

Spider mites are extremely active during summers and thrive in dry dusty conditions. If you suspect a spider infestation on one or more of your Las Vegas valley trees, call us at Nevada Tree Service for comprehensive tree care services.

Beetles

Pests Infects TreeMany different species of beetles are considered a threat to trees with each species attacking trees in individual ways. Tree-killing beetles bore into bark, tree limbs and even into roots, laying eggs under the bark causing a range of damage and even death of the tree.

Nevada Tree Service can provide a crucial tree care plans that will help keep your tree healthy by removing and destroying infested branches.

Borers

Tree borers lay eggs within a tree that then chew through the bark and roots, weakening trees by disrupting the proper transfer of water and essential nutrients.

Borers are best prevented through routine tree service provided from experienced professionals.

When summer or winter sets in, trees must be watered at regular intervals to provide roots with sufficient nourishment. Let’s take a look at a few tree care tips you can follow to take proper care of your trees during these seasons.

Watering in Summer

Watering of TreesFirst, you must determine the dryness of the soil. This will help you decide how much it needs to be watered. So, dig out about two inches of soil and hold it in your hands. If you can tighten it into a ball, then there is sufficient moisture in the soil. If not, you will need to water the area properly. You can also use a soil probe to check the moisture level more accurately.

Avoid lawn irrigation during summers as it fails in providing the roots with sufficient water. Instead, ensure that you water the trees right at their base. This will let the water seep through, giving it a much needed deep soak.

The amount of water a tree needs will depend on its age. For newer trees, deep-watering is recommended. This will provide the roots with enough water to nourish the whole tree. For older trees, you can leave it to find water through its network of long roots. If you are unable to determine how much water your trees need call the tree care professionals from Nevada Tree Service 

Watering in Winter

Trees are usually dormant during this season, and the food synthesized by the leaves is sent to the roots for storage. However, in dry climates, trees may still require watering. Nevada Tree Service can provide you with thorough recommendations for proper watering of your Las Vegas trees during the winter months.

Before watering, check the soil to a depth of about eight inches. If not moist, then push in a water hose and slowly soak the soil. If it is a fruit tree, then watering becomes even more essential as it promotes the proper growth of fruit buds.

Deciduous trees will completely shed off its leaves during winter to better utilize water and food reserves. In contrast, coniferous trees maintain leaves all through the season. But this also increases its chance of being affected by drought.

It is ideal to remove weeds within four feet of the tree. This makes sure that the water actually gets to the roots rather than getting sucked up by the weeds. You can also add mulch between the drip line and the tree trunk to maintain the moisture content of the soil.

All living organisms need water to survive.

But, we live in a time when water is consistently wasted. From leaving the faucet on while we brush our teeth to watering the garden more than necessary, we overuse what water resources we have and produce high levels of pollution as a result. Water conservation efforts are helping us use water more efficiently and avoid waste in order to meet current and future demand, preserve water resources, and prevent pollution.

How Can We Conserve Water with Tree Care?

Tree Care Las VegasTrees are a huge source of fresh water. Research has shown that if trees don’t exist, then water does not exist. In fact, on average, trees will breathe out 250 to 400 gallons of water in a single day. This makes them an invaluable piece of Earth’s rain cycle. They are also integral to reducing flooding and improving water quality to reduce pollution to sewers, lakes, and other bodies of water. The following tree care tips can help with water conservation:

1. Reduce Competition Between Grass and Tree Roots

Most nutrients and moisture reside near the surface of the soil, so the most absorbent tree roots tend to grow in the uppermost few inches. When the area surrounding the base of the tree is covered in grass, there is interference – or, competition between the grass and tree roots for nutrients and water. This can result in a poorly developed tree.

Remove grass around the tree to allow its roots to have better access to the top layer of soil. This will allow the tree to gather more oxygen, nutrients, and water – components it needs to effectively filter out the water to help preserve resources and prevent pollution to the water system.

2. Steer Away from Rocks for Landscaping

Using rocks around trees is a popular landscaping design, but can actually do more harm than good when it comes to water conservation. Rocks actually increase the heat at the base of the tree and under the soil, affecting the roots. This necessitates more frequent watering of the tree to make sure it is getting the amount of water it needs. Using more water naturally goes against water conservation, so opt for an alternative, such as light mulch, to prevent using more water than necessary.

At Nevada Tree Service, we can help with tree root management and tree maintenance to keep trees as healthy as possible. Those interested in ways they can contribute to water conservation through tree care are invited to give us a call to learn more.

It can be easy to forget that even the oldest olive tree is a living, breathing thing – and therefore liable to disease and eventual death. However, you should not mourn the shade and beauty of your favorite tree without a thorough assessment – there may be hope for it yet.

Just Like with Humans, Tree Care Is Best Left to Professionals

A sick tree is, sadly, not just unsightly, but also an impending danger to your home, neighbors, and family. Many root problems and fungi can weaken the tree to the point of causing it to fall, especially if you live in an area prone to aggressive winds such as Nevada.

Likewise, many tree diseases are contagious, which means that the fungus killing your beautiful oak may soon be all over your roses too. While this makes a powerful case to immediately get rid of any sick trees in your property, it’s important to keep in mind that a good tree service won’t limit itself to getting rid of any and all trees they are called about.

When It Comes to Sickness, Diagnosis Is Key

After detecting a sick or tilted tree, many homeowners are tempted to take matters into their own hands and simply cut the tree off. However, such a rushed decision may end up killing a non-terminal patient: only an experienced arborist will be able to determine exactly what is affecting the tree.

Tree Care

Many types of fungi can be reversed, and imbalanced growth corrected, through opportune tree care. After all, a cedar or birch that has been growing for decades deserves the chance to be saved. Should the tree be determined to be unsalvageable, then a tree service will help you remove it safely, without endangering any of the surrounding property.

Just like any other living thing, tree health has many nuances that are not obvious to the untrained eye. Nevada Tree Service will offer you their professional’s know-how to determine how best to heal an ailing tree, or to safely remove it.

Breaking of Tree Branches: During winter season the wood of the trees get hardened and become brittle. It also gets damaged due to strong winds.

Use warm water over the area to remove any ice or you can use blow drier.

Frost Cracking: Due to temperature fluctuations the stress between inner wood and outer bark leads to cracks. You need to use tree blankets for cold weather. Further you can apply wilt prof in order to minimize winter damage and moisture loss.

Trees are majestic creatures, standing like sentinels in the hierarchy of mother nature. They are the reason we are all alive. They provide us with shade, fruit, flowers, wood and so many other countless things that we seldom think of but use almost everyday for general use.

Most common of the gifts from the trees and the most valuable to mankind, Oxygen. Come to think of it, we are still living in a world where barter system exists. Well, in a way. We breathe in the oxygen from the trees and breathe out Carbon di-Oxide for them to use, only to get more oxygen in return, and the wheel keeps turning.

Their are trees which are thousands of years old, but are still growing and thriving. Even though they are the oldest known surviving living things, they also need care and nurture from time to time. Without proper love and attention, they too shall wither and die.

Here are a few bullets one should have in mind if one wants to take good care of one’s trees. If followed to the point and religiously, one can never go wrong with their trees.

Pruning:- Like humans need a periodic haircut for proper hair growth, same goes for trees. Without proper trimming of dead or weak branches, their growth is hindered. If pruning is not done atleast once a year, it can lead to unhealthy growth and an unstable structure. Weak or dead branches should not be left unattended. When required trimming and pruning is done on a regular basis, the tree is allowed more space to expand and grow. V shaped branches are the weakest ones, and should be targeted first.

Fertilize:- Fertilizers are the nutrients that trees need to grow and bloom. However, before applying fertilizers, one should know what fertilizer he should use for what kind of tree. Different trees have different requirements. One can also consult with an arborist and learn the application of these fertilizers and their frequency of use. Excess fertilizer can again cause the destruction of the tree.

Mulch:- A mulch is a piece of cloth that is put around the trees or plants on the ground, to retain the moisture in the soil, control oxygen levels and regulate the temperature, all of which contribute to the direct development of the tree. It is one of the most widely used, effective and easy techniques used around the world to help nurture the growth of the tree.

Storm proofing:- No matter how much we prune or fertilize, no one can withstand the wrath of mother nature. Trees should be taken proper care of, and some provision should be made to combat the strong winds of a storm, for it can strip the tree off its leaves and flowers. Let alone that, storms are known even to uproot the tree itself. Instead of rehabilitating damaged trees, they should be removed to protect the surrounding trees from any damage it might cause.

Conclusion

Remember to water them as often as you can, no matter what the season. They increase the property value, regulate air conditioning and appear soothing to the eye. All in all, trees are the essence of our lives, and in the same way they stand in the sun to give us shade, they too deserve a little care from our end.

To grow strong and healthy, a tree needs proper nutrients, a great deal of sunlight, and adequate watering. Proper tree care means more than simply saturating the ground around the tree with water, as that will do more damage than good, especially to a young tree. The following are several tips for watering trees to achieve the best results:

  • For young trees, water is important. They will need sufficient water to grow properly. Water heavily a few times a week, so the water will sink into the deep soil, encouraging deeper root growth. Adding mulch above the ground will also help to keep the soil from drying out in direct sunlight.
  • Too much water, as mentioned above, can damage a young tree. The ground should be moist, but not soggy. Moist ground allows oxygen to pass through, whereas soggy soil will erode and take away important nutrients.
  • After the first two years, a tree will be able to withstand periods of drought and it will become less necessary to water it regularly. Drought resistant trees are a good option if you live in a consistently dry climate. Tree care in Las Vegas might be more difficult than in southern California, for example.
  • Soaker hoses and drip irrigation systems are particularly useful in keeping the soil moist and oxygenated but also nutrient rich. Sprinklers are also good at keeping the entire lawn watered, allowing the tree roots to spread far throughout the ground.
  • Watering the leaves of fruiting and deciduous trees could damage the fruit, encouraging the growth of fungus or disease. Water does the most use within the roots.
