Oak Wilt

August 8, 2018 – Our Oak trees in the Midwest should be in their full glory this time of the year. Their canopies should be full of dark green leaves providing us with wonderful shade for our summer picnics. However, the deadly fungus oak wilt is now presenting itself on Oak trees in Minnesota and Wisconsin. This photo is of a massive red oak in Stillwater, Minnesota that is succumbing to oak wilt. If your Oaks are looking unusual in anyway please call us to setup an appointment to look at treatment options.

Crabapple Trees

June 21, 2018 – The flowering Crabapple trees in Minnesota were absolutely stunning this spring. Checkout the magnificent blooms in these photos that were taken at a SavATree client’s home near Stillwater, Minnesota. Now that the showy flowers are gone and the trees are fully leafed out, it is time to protect your landscapes from Japanese Beetles. These pesky bugs like to celebrate our Independence Day by exploding around the 4th of July. As soon as they emerge they will begin ferociously feeding on many of our favored species of trees and plants. It is not too late to set-up a protection plan for your landscape. Contact us today. Also don’t forget a grub application for your lawn. Have a great 4th of July!
