Arbor Doctor serves the city of Los Angeles, CA and surrounding cities.  We are proud to be the best arborists in the area and can provide the people of Los Angeles with the best option to save there trees from harmful diseases.  Most of the diseases of the area are extremely dangerous in trees.  We want to helps your sick trees become better.  Arbor Doctor arms its certified arborists with the best methods on the market for taking care of your trees.  These methods are environmentally friendly.  We even have the first essential oils spray that is being used to take care of those pesky bugs that might be eating your tree alive.  

For injections on invasive insects we use a needle point injection that is similar to your getting a shot at the doctors office.  Well no pain for you atleast.  The needles are in most cases smaller than the head of a needle.  This allows the trees to grow over usually within a month.  In palm trees the injeciton point can be used multiple times since the holes will not fill in.  We use only the most effective methods on the market to help save your trees from disease and insect damage.  Most of the damage can look invisible so it is important to have an arborist diagnose potential problems with your trees.

Some of the common problems in Los Angeles ca in trees are the following.  In palm trees there will be a concern that Red Palm Weevil can kill them off in a short period of time.  These insects first arrived in California in Laguna Beach in 2010.  They kill the most palm trees world wide and are a major concern for the palm trees of the area.  The other problem is called fusarium wilt.  It is a soild born fungus that effects palm trees.  It causes the fronds of the trees to turn yellow and fall off.  This disease enters through the roots and spreads from tree to tree very easily.  If a tree dies of this disease it is not recommended to plant another palm tree in the area again.

Gold Spotted Oak Borer is a major concern of the oak trees in the entire Los Angeles Metro area.  This disease eats the living layer out of the tree and is best controled befor the insects are present in the tree.  The larvea of the beetles eat the inside of the tree as a fod source while they are growing.  The pattern is generally a serpentine pattern which causes a lot of damage with a small amount of insects.  Generally you will see dieback from the top of the tree if these insects are present in your tree.

Pine trees in the area are of concern for many different diseases.  Fungal diseases like needle blight kills thousands of trees every year.  This disease usually is invisible until it is too late.  Needles start to discolor and spotting is the easiest way to notice this disease.  The spotting will be present on the needles.  The spotting generally shows up in the center of the needles and is dark brown to black in color.  The spot will start to fruit into a white powdery like substance.  These are fungal pores and they are the easiest way for the disease to spread from tree to tree and around in the currently infested tree.  Pine bark borer is killing millions of trees in surrounding states.  This insect can easily deforesst an entire area.

Why hire ISA certified professionals?
Ok so you see this logo all the time.  It is from the International Society of Arborists.  But what does it mean and why would you want to hire someone who is ISA certified?  You might be mondering if we just pay money and become ISA certified. Or that it is some made up label.  

ISA is the standard for the tree care industry.  Many cities that require licenses to do tree work in a city require ISA certification.  What that requires is that tree services' opperator needs to pass a test on just about everything within the tree industry.  This makes individuals with ISA certifiactions very knowledgable on just about everything in the tree industry.  

This certification also gives alot of crediability to a tree service.  If the company has went out of its way to gain ISA certifacation they almost always have proper insurance, licensing or anything else required to do tree work in your yard.  Your trees are valuable resources to your landscape and should be given the best care out there.  Hire an ISA certified arborist like Arbor Doctor
