The winter moth heavily infests the Northeast and the towns surrounding Foxboro yearly. Populations have not subsided. Winter moths mate in the fall and lay eggs in the winter. Maple, cherry, apple, oaks and birch are most susceptible. Spring is an ideal time to locate winter moth infestations. Tree Tech treats trees for winter moth in the spring to minimize or prevent damage.

Other problem insects have been the Asian Long Horned Beetle and the Hemlock Woolley Adelgid which have caused problems throughout the Northeast. These insects can kill many of the trees if symptoms or infestations are not reported. Tree Tech can inspect your trees and be proactive with preserving them from the Asian Long Horned Beetle and the Hemlock Woolley Adelgid.

Rain is good for tree and shrub growth. It helps trees and shrubs put on extensive amounts of luscious foliage. However, extensive growth puts some trees at risk of breakage, being so laden. Your trees and shrubs may need pruning and branch removal for them to keep appropriate shape. When shrubs and trees experience excessive growth, they crowd each other and suffer from congestion.

Trimming and pruning trees allows enough space for additional growth and sunlight and insect infestation is cut down drastically.

Any season except winter is the opportune time to prune and trim your trees and shrubs.

They look more natural and attractive after grooming.

Pruned and trimmed trees also are much better able to withstand heavy winds, as well as snow and ice loads in the winter.
