What Proper Tree and Shrub Care Looks Like

Much like your lawn and grass, proper fertilization is at the core of every thriving ornamental landscape. LawnRx can fertilize your ornamentals to keep them looking their best and better protect them from disease and insect invasions. Our tree and shrub fertilization is injected into the trunk of your trees aimed at reaching the root zone. Doing this will enable it to enrich the soil and increase the nutrient levels immediately. Our experts will also make recommendations and tell you what type of insects and diseases may be causing health problems for your beloved lawn investments.

Disease Control
Diseases can affect your Latrobe area trees and shrubs throughout the entire growing season. We identify which plants are susceptible to certain conditions and apply preventative disease controls before the symptoms appear. Keeping your ornamentals healthy and disease-free will increase the plant’s overall vigor and appearance.

Insect Control
Insects can cause severe damage to otherwise healthy trees and shrubs. We identify which plants are susceptible to specific insects and treat only particular specific plants at the appropriate times. This will prevent and stop the insects from causing damage and weakening your trees and shrub’s health. We are very cautious of pesticide exposure to our pollinators and beneficial insects and use the Integrated Pest Management System at all times. While many different types of insects and diseases impact the health and livelihood of our Latrobe ornamentals, the most common include:

  • Spotted Lanternfly
  • Apple Scab
  • Mites
  • Hemlock woolly adelgid
  • Bagworms
  • Anthracnose
  • Thousand canker disease
  • Fire blight
  • Powdery mildew
  • Verticillium wilt
  • Gypsy moth
