St. James, New York
January 14, 2020 – Another way to tell deer are on your property besides the damage to your plants is “buck rub”. If your trees look like this, it is a good sign that deer are present and that they are probably snacking on your favorite shrubs and flowers. Keep your property healthy and safe from deer with SavATree’s DeerTech ultrasonic system and sprays. Our natural, safe repellents are a great way to keep deer damage to a minimum. Contact your local ISA Certified Arborist for a complimentary tree, shrub and lawn assessment!
Struggling Alaskan Cedar
June 26, 2019 – When landscaping your property, it’s important to be conscientious of maintaining proper planting death and soil level of current specimens when adding new plantings to your property.
