Tips on Hiring a Professional Tree Spraying Service

Professional Tree Spraying Service

You may not realize it, but the trees on your property contribute to its value and your quality of life in several ways. Their leaves can oxygenate the surrounding area which is beneficial to all creatures. Shade from a mature tree can also keep your residence cooler in summer. It is also a fact that a well-treed property will increase its resale value. However, trees of any type and age require maintenance to ensure a long and healthy life. Organically Green, a leading horticultural company throughout Long Island, recommends seasonal tree spraying in Suffolk county and Nassau County.  We offer these tips when hiring a professional tree spraying service.

How Long Have They Been in Business?

Ensuring your personal arboretum to a startup, or to the company that mows your lawn is not advisable. Chances are they will not be versed in horticulture and more likely to use products from the local big box store in an attempt at a ‘one spray fits all’ approach. It is important to hire a company that understands the insects and diseases that Long Island trees are prone to, and how best to rout attacks from both pests and pestilence. For over 16 years, Long Islanders have turned to Organically Green Horticultural Services to maintain the beauty of their properties. Our team is passionate about maintaining the plants and trees in our region, one client at a time.

What are Their Qualifications?

We do not recommend trusting the health and wellbeing of your plants, shrubs, and trees to amateurs. The team at Organically Green is licensed by the Department of Environmental Conservation of New York State (DEC). We are also certified and follow the organic methods recommended by the North-East Organic Farming Association (NOFA). Additionally, the majority of our team are also International Society of Arboriculture certified arborists and NYSNLA Certified Nursery and Landscape Professionals. In short, we know trees!

What are the Biggest Threats to Long Island Trees?

It is also important to ask prospects about their knowledge concerning tree preservation, and what diseases and pests pose the greatest threat to the type of trees you have on your property. For example, if you have a stand of tall oaks, either white, black, or pinoaks, know that each has its share of ‘enemies’. In fact, just this year, the NY State Dept. of Environmental Conservation made note of the first known case of oak wilt, often a fatal tree disease, on Long Island. It has been spotted in Suffolk County, and swiftly addressed. Should your property be graced with one or more majestic oaks, that you contact our team to inspect your trees to ensure they are free from oak wilt. Staying on top of the most recent developments in tree health in our region makes Organically Green the preferred firm for tree spraying in Suffolk County and throughout Long Island. We can also advise regarding threats to fruit and ornamental trees as well as every type of plant that grows in our region.

What Will You Do to Protect My Trees and My Health? 

In recent years, nearly everyone has become more conscious of both environmental conservation and the impact of pesticides and chemical herbicides on our health. That is why Organically Green offers superior organic tree and plant spraying programs that are designed to rout insect and disease-related issues. Our tree and shrub spraying protocols are customized with the needs of each property we service. We are innovators and use the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) system which is based on three principles: we monitor, we assess, we take action. Organically Green’s tree spraying in Suffolk county and Nassau county is always based on the most current, relevant information and methodologies. This way our company can manage and maintain your property against pests and disease as efficiently and economically as possible. We never lose sight of the fact that Long Island is our home as well, therefore our plant and tree spraying services are carried out with minimal environmental impact.

Effective Tick Spraying for Long Island Homeowners

Long Island Tick Spraying

Anyone who calls this region home knows that Long Island is truly one of the best places to live – anywhere! The natural beauty of the area includes both rocky and sandy shorelines, an abundance of seafood available fresh from local waters, pine barrens, rivers, streams, and fields. All within the shadow of Manhattan which thanks to efficient highway and rail lines, provides ample employment opportunities as well. If there is a downside to the natural habitat that would be the tick and deer populations. Local residents know there is a tradeoff of sorts for the privilege of living here. In other words, seasonal tick remediation is a must, and for those looking across the region for effective Long Island tick spraying options, look no further than Organically Green Horticultural Services.  

First, let’s discuss why ticks are an issue: they spread Lyme disease. Blacklegged ticks have a relationship with deer especially on Eastern Long Island, where the regional deer population is greatest. Contrary to popular opinion, ticks do not contract Lyme disease from deer, but as larvae when they draw sustenance from infected mice. Deer are brought into the equation because adult female ticks attach themselves to deer as nests where they can lay their eggs. Deer are also a food source, but deer cannot contract Lyme disease from ticks. They are just hosts, but hosts that carry tick eggs, and ticks into neighborhoods across the Island. If you live in townships where deer naturally roam, your property is more likely to have Lyme disease carrying ticks. Fortunately, Organically Green’s Long Island tick spraying services can remediate these pests on your property. 

Blacklegged ticks are not the only ticks that create health issues in our region. All ticks carry diseases including the Lone Star tick and brown dog tick. Only the Blacklegged tick carries Lyme disease, however all tick variants are anaplasmosis, babesiosis, and ehrlichiosis carriers as ticks can transmit more than one disease. Additionally, the American dog tick can transmit Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever in the NorthEast. These statements are strong arguments for hiring Organically Green to protect your property and family with our Long Island tick spraying services. 

Did you know? Lyme disease has not been around that long. In fact, it was first isolated in Lyme Connecticut (just across the Sound) in 1975.  According to Johns Hopkins Medical Center, there are over 300,000 cases of Lyme disease reported every year, mostly on the Eastern seaboard, specifically Long Island and New England. Lyme disease is an infection caused by Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria which is commonly spread by a tick bite. Left untreated it can cause chronic joint inflammation, palsy, and neurological impairment. Unfortunately, the lifecycle of an average tick is about two years. Therefore it is imperative that residents contract with dependable Long Island tick spraying companies to control the tick population in their yards and properties.

Organically Green offers tick control services throughout Long Island, from Great Neck to Huntington, to Sayville, to Port Jefferson, and the Hamptons and all towns in between. We provide effective Long Island tick spraying throughout the peak tick season, from May through August, however the nymphs appear as soon as the frost subsides, which can be as early as March. Given an extended summer, the threat of ticks can continue into the Fall. That is why until there is a hard frost, the heath threat from ticks bites continues. We invite property owners throughout the Island to contact our team of professionals today to learn more about how Organically Green’s responsive tick control applications can keep the Long Island tick population at bay season after season and provide safety for you and your family.

After a long winter, what Long Islander doesn’t want to get outside and enjoy the warmer weather? Not so fast. First, you need to remember that there are seasonal pests that will swarm as soon as the temperatures climb. By pests, we mean the health-threatening tick population. In case you’ve forgotten or are new to the region, ticks, especially deer ticks, can cause Lyme disease, which is debilitating and can cause long-term joint, heart, and nervous system health issues. This annual swarm activity does not have to sentence Long Island residents to house arrest until the dog days of Summer. Not if you contact Organically Green to discuss our effective tick control for Suffolk County and the rest of Long Island.

We can provide a customized tick-spraying maintenance service to protect your home, property, family, and pets throughout the spring and summer months.

That means season after season enjoying your backyard for picnics, swimming, sunning, games, dining, and more all without concern for your personal, family’s, and pets’ safety. In addition to Lyme disease, ticks cause other illnesses such as Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Babesiosis, Powassan, and Ehrlichiosis.

Tree Spraying: How it Prevents Pests and Disease

Tree Spraying

The beauty of Long Island’s East End must be preserved. Its lush greenery and stately trees are part of the landscape that contributes to the area’s uniqueness. Plants and trees also create oxygen which is beneficial to all. However, over time some pests and diseases have taken a toll on many of these plants and trees. But that is not the only threat. Among the environment’s predators are some chemical sprays – we use chemicals used to eradicate the pests and to control diseases that affect trees in our region. Our point is: that it does not have to take toxins to rout toxic pests. Instead, speak to the horticulturalists at Organically Green. We offer tree spraying in Suffolk County (and throughout Long Island) that will benefit your greenery as well as preserve your health and the environment. 

Did you know? According to the United States Department of Agriculture, an average sized tree alone produces enough life-giving oxygen to sustain up to four persons. (And you thought trees were just attractive plantings that shed their leaves in the Fall!) Now that you are aware of this fact, you’ll realize the importance of preserving as many trees and plantings on your property as possible, by the safest means available. That is where Organically Green comes in. As part of our tree spraying services for Suffolk County and Nassau County residents, we utilize organic horticultural oils- we do use hort oil but it cannot successfully treat all of the things listed and we use a wide range of products for different insects and diseases, some organic some not to treat mildews, rusts, leaf spots and curls, black spots, blights, and other fungal diseases. Additionally, our water soluble solutions will control aphids, spider mites, scale insects, earwigs, white flies, weevils, stink bugs, Japanese beetles, and many more. 

Organically Green’s tree spraying solutions in Suffolk and Nassau Counties are tough on pests and tree diseases, but kind to living organisms such as bees, birds, pets, wildlife, even other beneficial insects, and the environment. The results are thriving plants with no negative environmental or health impacts.

Benefits of Starting Tick Spraying

Benefits of Tick Spraying

Many winter and cold spring weary Long Islanders haven’t thought much about tick spraying. Suffolk County however, has long been known as the Lyme disease capital of the region.That fact alone has caused many of us to rethink about protecting our families and pets by making our yards safer places to recreate this year. The good news is that regarding tick spraying, there is no time like the present to get started. 

Here’s another sobering fact regarding ticks on Long Island – the Center for Disease Control (CDC) states that more species of ticks have migrated to Northern states over the past twenty years. Along with this migration, known cases of numerous tick-borne diseases, most notably Lyme disease, have increased exponentially. That’s another reason why the benefits of tick spraying in Suffolk County are legion: this service reduces the spread of Lyme disease while keeping your families including our four-legged ‘children’ safe. Before another day goes by, contact Organically Green Horticultural Services to discuss a customized plan to keep ticks off your property, and away from your family and guests. 

Spray now, and ticks in their early nymphal stage, when this pest is most vulnerable, will likely reduce their numbers. However it is very important to continue to treat your property every 4 weeks from March into October and even, in some years, November. That is partly due to the fact that Long Island’s East End is home to a large deer population. It is a sobering fact, but deer ticks take two years to complete their life cycle. What that means to East End property owners is that they must remain ever vigilant and that tick spraying in Suffolk County must be continuous until hard freeze to be optimally effective. Contact Organically Green’s professionals as soon as possible to enjoy your yard all year. 

Think about that: being able to use your property, especially your backyard without having to wear slacks and douse yourself with bug repellant. Ticks swarm during those first few warm Spring days, especially when the weather is humid and the ground is damp. But their threat remains all season. Until Organically Green’s technicians can provide our tick spraying services we recommend that you take the following precautions:

  • Discourage wildlife from entering your property. Raccoons, deer, rodents, and even neighborhood dogs are likely hosts for ticks hitching a ride into your backyard. How? Reconsider where you stack your firewood. Placed inside an enclosure such as a shed is best to ensure that it stays dry as it ages. This will also reduce the possibility of  rodents (mice, squirrels, chipmunks- all known tick carriers) from nesting in the stack. Remove any disused items from the yard including lawn furniture that has wintered outdoors as ticks may have found these items ideal hiding places.
  • Keep grass short and well groomed.

The best benefit for tick spraying in Suffolk County at the onset of the tick season, is that once this pest has been controlled, you’ll benefit from a care-free summer without compromise. Take back your property and enjoy the 2022 summer season! While we think of it, Nassau County, especially along the North Shore, has its share of ticks as well. Do not take chances with your family’s health and wellbeing. Wherever you live on Long Island, call Organically Green at 631-467-7999 today!

Its beaches are pristine, the locality supports a renowned wine industry, and its tourism draws visitors from around the world. Unfortunately, in this paradise, there is the threat of an annual tick infestation that cannot be ignored.

Planning Your Spring & Summer Tick Prevention Strategy

Tick Spraying Suffolk County

Many residents of Suffolk county assume that local authorities will spray common areas against potential tick infestations. However, tick spraying in Suffolk County by the municipality is not sufficient in scale nor continuous to effectively combat the spread of ticks in every neighborhood. With the constant threat of Lyme disease throughout Long Island’s East End, the best way to ensure your family’s safety outdoors is to mount your own annual Spring, Summer and Fall tick prevention program with the assistance of the pros at Organically Green.

The tick population begins to multiply rapidly at the onset of warmer weather and continues until temperatures drop to near freezing in the Fall. That’s why we suggest a monthly campaign beginning in March through the first week in December. Organically Green’s team of licensed professionals will assess your property, make recommendations (such as removing any piles of yard waste and/or leaf litter where ticks can breed), then apply your choice of preventative measures as your customized tick spraying in Suffolk county program specifically tailored to your requirements. 

It is important not to rely on local municipalities to control the spread of ticks in your neighborhood. Instead, to ensure a healthy and happy Spring, Summer, and Fall season enjoying outdoor activities, consult with our team now.

We’re going to outline 3 projects that you should at least get professional supervision, if not let the pros just do outright.

Choosing The Right Plants

There’s a bit more involved in choosing the right plants beyond “this looks nice”.

After all, your plant diagnosis starts with the plants you decide to own and nurture!

Taking Care of Your Trees

Contrary to what most think, trees require more than sunlight and oxygen. So when it comes to taking care of your trees – it’s essential to scope out your area to keep your house and property safe, while ensuring your trees are disease-free – that’s a task best left to the professionals.

Enhancing Your Soil

Your plants, trees and shrubs can only be as healthy as the soil they sit on top of. This means the majority of your plant’s needs come from one place, making it all the more important to have someone with experience in charge.

Professional Spotted Lanternfly & Beech Leaf Disease Treatment Services

Spotted Lanternfly & Beech Leaf Disease Treatment

Organically Green’s cutting-edge beech leaf and spotted lanternfly treatment services are specially designed to help Long Island residents alleviate a common, yet potentially devastating problem. To note, many Long Islanders are quick to assume that issues of this sort are ‘not serious’ and therefore, don’t require professional attention. While this may be correct in some cases, it does pose a relevant risk that just may not call for such gambling.

Organically Green’s Premium Spotted Lanternfly Treatment

In a perfect world, spotted lanternflies are treated proactively during the summer or early fall. This is accomplished by scrapping their eggs before they’re able to hatch – alleviating the issue before it hatches into one! A professional that knows what to look for will likely find the eggs on trees, rocks – even man-made objects such as lawn ornaments, which will be covered in a stick, wax-like substance. 

However, in most cases, you don’t realize you have a problem until your only option is to react. So in this case, you can have the ISA-certified Organically Green arborists employ their state-of-the-art chemical solutions. However, spotted lanternfly treatment isn’t always so cut and dry – you have to know what you’re looking for, determine what stage of the life cycle the spotted lanternflies are in and choose the appropriate remedy for the aforementioned situation. 

Top-Of-The-Line Beech Leaf Disease Treatment 

Beech leaf disease all starts from a microscopic worm – a disease that harms trees significantly. Discovered as late as 2012, beech leaf disease treatment has come a long way, however there is no finite treatment. Instead, the professionals at Organically Green can work to prevent this from happening in the first place. This is all the more reason to have us readily available, so we can spot and terminate tree-killing diseases before they take shape.
