Tree Services at Hillcrest and Park Lane

You might have noticed some tree services going on at the large property at Hillcrest and Park Lane recently. Our Arborists and crews have been working to improve the health of some of their mature Red Oaks. These are beautiful trees and the owners are committed to caring for them and preserving their health.

Back in January, we properly pruned a number of their trees, and applied an application of Winter Seasons dormant oil for natural pest control. When we were walking the property, we noticed four of their mature Red Oaks had borer activity.


In order to improve overall vigor in response to the borer infestation, we treated for the borers, performed radial trenching (to expose the root flares), soil aeration, and spread a 1-inch layer of compost beneath the drip line.


You might think this would cause a big mess, but here is one snapshot of finished work in the area.


In addition to helping the tree, the soil aeration we performed will also be beneficial to the surrounding turf which will fill back in nicely. We will continue to monitor all the trees on property and will work to get these Red Oaks back to good health. This site does have some beautiful mature tree specimens on property and we want to make sure they stay that way!

If you think you have borers in your trees, or your trees seem to lack vigor, please call us today so we can visit your home and do a full assessment on your trees. 214.528.2266 or
