“We appreciate the time and attention that your Arbor Patrol team takes to maintain the overall health and appearance of the trees, bushes and general grounds. As they say, you can only have one first impression and the impression the grounds make on both residents and visitors alike is always positive thanks to your caring maintenance. Just as the trees continue to grow and blossom under your care, we hope our relationship with SavATree does the same.”William Toedter
“After four different unsatisfactory visits with so-called arborists, I found SavaTree... I was most impressed with the professionalism of David [my arborists] and his colleagues. They were most knowledgeable, fair with their assessment about what needed to be done, yet very attuned with what my concerns. I highly recommend them without any hesitation. In a field where there is an abundance of folks looking to take advantage of consumers, SavaTree, David and crew strike me as incredibly honest and proud arborists who do a fantastic job.”Debbie Durkin

“For over 14 years, I have entrusted the care of my trees, plants and orchard to SavATree. Their highly qualified arborists have exacting standards and understand how to maintain the health and form of the various species of trees on my property. I admire the artistic skill that goes into the pruning and love the colorful blossoms, fruits and foliage that flourish as a result of their impeccable care.”Martha Stewart
"Efficient, high quality, professional competence — all at a competitive sum. At first [Alison] Pottage won me over by her solid knowledge as an arborist, then the crew did their job to her specifications on our 60 to 70 foot oaks within a remarkable period of time -- and left the grounds quite clean.”

Chinch bugs can malign even the best of lawn care programs. There are many types of chinch bugs, although the hairy chinch bug is a specific species that is prevalent in the northeastern United States. They attack many types of grass including Kentucky bluegrass, fine fescues, perennial ryegrass, bentgrass, and zoysia.
Chinch bugs can cause extensive damage to your lawn, because they use piercing mouth parts to suck sap and inject toxins into the crowns and stems of grass plants. Because chinch bugs can fly, they also can be very difficult to prevent. Mid-summer through early fall is when your landscape is most at risk for damage from chinch bugs. Dry conditions promote the spread of chinch bugs and make the damage more noticeable.
Identification and Control of Chinch Bugs
The key to quality insect control is to inspect your lawn regularly in order to identify and treat unwanted chinch bug populations early on. Adult chinch bugs are about the same size as a sesame seed - approximately 1/5” in length - and have flat black bodies with black and white wings. Your lawn care specialist may recommend a program that integrates both curative chinch bug treatments and preventive measures in order to maintain maximum pest control in your lawn. Usually, the best timing for chinch bug control treatments is in early June. The lawn care specialists at SavaLawn, the lawn care division of SavATree, can accommodate your personal preferences to address chinch bug infestations.
