Common Tree and Shrub Issues in Chesterfield, VA

Across Chesterfield County, many households boast similar trees and plants. Virginia’s favorite trees are not immune to pests, diseases and other ailments. Luckily Orleans has seen it all and our plant health care program is designed to fix your most pressing problems.

Crape Myrtle Bark Scale

Since 2022, Chesterfield and the rest of the Richmond region has experienced a significant outbreak of crape myrtle bark scale infestations.

These minuscule insects feed on your tree sap and weaken the entire tree. The weaker your trees, the shorter their lifespan.

The bark scale insects can ruin the appearance of your tree, inhibit growth, and hinder leaf and flower development.

There are even extreme cases where an overwhelming number of bark scale insects end up suffocating the tree, leading to its demise. The sight of dead trees can be unsightly and diminish the overall value and appeal of your landscape.

Initially more prevalent in the southern United States, particularly states near the Gulf of Mexico, these pests have now made their mark in the yards of Chesterfield homes and businesses.

Orleans can identify crape myrtle bark scale, create a tailored treatment plan, and put a stop to the threat to your trees.

Dogwood Anthracnose

The dogwood holds a special place as Virginia’s state tree. However, anthracnose can make light work of this flowering tree.

This common disease infects your tree and leaves destruction in its path.

Cankers may develop, and if left untreated, the disease can ultimately prove fatal for your dogwood tree.

At Orleans, our arbor care experts will identify the early symptoms of anthracnose and provide appropriate treatments for safeguarding your trees.

Addressing the Root Causes of Tree Issues in Chesterfield, VA

Many tree and shrub problems stem from underlying root issues. Your root’s growth can be stumped due to confinement and restricted space. Construction projects or other changes to your landscape can result in unwanted rot.

It’s tough for urban and suburban trees to develop healthy roots. Don’t let your trees suffer from restricted root space, especially on a commercial property. Buildings, driveways and utilities all cut into the space your trees need to grow.

The soil surrounding your trees plays a big role in root health. Construction activity, foot traffic, vehicles, and heavy machinery can lead to soil compaction. Dense soil hampers your tree roots’ ability to receive essential water and oxygen. You don’t want to jeopardize the survival of your trees.

Soil fertility imbalances affect more than just tree growth. When you optimize soil nutrition it helps your trees naturally resist pests and diseases.

Orleans specializes in deep root fertilization, a process where fertilizers are directly applied to the area where tree roots can readily absorb the nutrients. Rest assured, our arborists use organic-based and food-grade fertilizers to ensure the safety of your children and pets while promoting the health of your trees.

Count on Orleans to aerate your roots and offer simple solutions for all your tree needs.
