“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

“It is always a pleasure working with SavATree as your company provides the best plant, tree and lawn health care that we have experienced at the Ives.

“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.”

Lawn Disease Treatment and Maintenance
Lawn disease treatment following diagnosis by a lawn care expert will restore your landscape’s health and beauty. High humidity, moisture, stress conditions and certain types of grass can create favorable conditions for problems such as lawn fungus, brown patches, red thread and other lawn diseases. Every lawn disease treatment recommended by your SavaLawn lawn specialist is based on analysis of the types of grass in your landscape and your growing environment.
Lawn Maintenance and Disease Prevention
Maintenance for lawn diseases is often a season-long endeavor. When a lawn disease treatment is applied to your lawn, the protected part of the blade gets removed as it grows and is mowed off. Thus, multiple applications of a lawn disease treatment may be required. The longevity of a lawn disease treatment mainly depends on the types of grass in your landscape, the specific lawn disease being treated and weather conditions.
Often times, the pathogens are never totally eradicated from the lawn. Diseases can lay dormant in the thatch or in the plants waiting for the right conditions to become active. Your lawn maintenance consultant will work with you to develop a program that integrates carefully targeted treatments for specific areas where undesirable weeds, crabgrass, damaging insects and lawn diseases exist. In order to develop turf that is more competitive against lawn disease, your program may also include a balance of specially formulated nutrients and slow-release fertilizers.
Common Lawn Diseases
Lawn disease control requires extensive knowledge and experience with the conditions specific to your region. Different kinds of lawn fungus cause different types of lawn diseases.
- Leaf spot is caused by a specific type of lawn fungus, and occurs predominantly in the spring when there is a lot of succulent new growth that doesn’t have the chance to harden off. Treatment for leaf spot lawn disease may be required every 2–3 weeks to gain control. Should this disease persist, slice seeding new grass varieties into your lawn is recommended to reduce the percentage of grass types that are susceptible to this lawn disease.
- Red thread is a type of lawn fungus that can be a season-long problem, from March to November. This lawn disease is most prevalent when the weather is damp or humid.
- Dollar spot is most common on bentgrass, but it also affects all cool season turf grasses. Environmental conditions favoring dollar spot lawn disease are warm days and cool-warm nights with high humidity or prolonged dew. It’s generally thought of as a summer lawn disease, occurring primarily from June to September.
- Patch disease infection doesn’t become obvious until the plants go into stress, normally occurring in June or July as a result of summer heat and reduced rain. Patch lawn disease is preventable. Out treatment protects your lawn for summer patch and brown patch conditions.
