Arborist Inspection & Consultation
COVA Tree’s arborists are tree care experts who possess specialized knowledge and skills in the care and maintenance of Colorado trees. Our expertise can help you make informed decisions about tree care, tree selection, planting, pruning, disease, and pest control. By including an arborist in your assessment of what is needed you too can share in the knowledge we have learned.
Colorado’s front range is naturally semi-arid prairie and would have few trees without irrigation. Because of this, growing healthy trees can be challenging and the long-term health of your tree often depends on timely diagnosis and treatment of the problem. An annual Arborist inspection can identify trees on the property that may need support and diagnose existing or potential issues with pests and diseases and prevent other possible hazards that may go unnoticed.
Tree and Plant Health Care
Trees are living beings and often require health care services for optimal wellness and vitality. Health Care for trees aims to improve their overall health and vitality and protect them from potential problems such as diseases, insect infestations, soil nutrient deficiencies, or environmental stressors such as drought. COVA Tree provides this care by utilizing a variety of treatments and supplements delivered in multiple ways including spraying, injecting and soil probing.
Deep Root Fertilization
Tree roots interact with the soil it's planted in through a complex network of biological, physical, and chemical processes. Tree roots absorb water and nutrients from the soil around it and transport them to the rest of the tree for growth and development. When the soil lacks essential nutrients deep-root fertilization is needed. This treatment involves injecting fertilizer directly into the tree's root zone, allowing the tree to absorb the nutrients it needs to support healthy growth, root development, and overall tree health.
Most often in Colorado spring and fall deep root fertilization is recommended for maintaining the health and vitality of trees. See Winter Watering for how it also supports deep-root health.
In Colorado, trees can experience stress during the winter and times of drought due to low humidity levels. The lack of moisture in the soil during these times can cause dehydration, potentially leading to severe stress or tree death. To prevent this, it is important to water trees regularly during these dry periods. COVA Tree can support your trees by injecting a water mixture that contains plant growth promoting bacteria and beneficial microorganisms. This can result in healthier root development, improved stress tolerance, and enhanced nutrient absorption, leading to stronger and more vibrant trees.
Because trees are living beings they can contract diseases from pests and insects that can weaken or even kill them. By taking steps to protect your trees we can promote health and well-being. Colorado is home to a variety of insects that can damage or kill your trees. Insects such as bark beetles, aphids, and spider mites can cause extensive damage to trees and weaken their defenses against other pests and diseases.
Injectable Micro Nutrients
Certain conditions such as chlorosis cause a tree to need additional nutritional support such as iron and other micronutrients. This need can occur because the type of tree growing requires more nourishment than the soil around it can provide. Directly inserting the needed nutrition into the tree’s vascular system is an efficient way to quickly transport nutrition to where the tree needs it most.
Growth regulators can be used for a variety of reasons including to control the size of a tree and prevent it from growing too large for its intended space. This treatment is often used in urban areas where space is limited, or to prevent trees from growing into power lines or other structures. Growth regulators are also used to improve branch structure by redirecting growth to specific branches, which can help to improve the overall structure and appearance of the tree.
Cabling and structural support
Cabling and structural support may be necessary for your tree if you are facing one of these common situations:
Split Crotches: If a tree has a "V-shaped" crotch where two branches meet, it may be at risk of splitting apart. This can be caused by wind or snow load, and can result in significant damage to the tree and surrounding property.
Cracks in the Trunk or Branches: Cracks in the trunk or branches of a tree can weaken the tree's structure and make it more susceptible to breaking.
Heavy or Overextended Limbs: Limbs that are heavy or overextended can put a significant amount of stress on a tree's structure, and may need to be supported with cables to prevent them from breaking.
Multiple Trunks: Trees with multiple trunks, or co-dominant stems, may need cabling or bracing to help support the weight of the tree and prevent it from splitting apart.
