After inspection of your property, our technician may recommend an application of Dormant Oil for your trees and shrubs. This is usually done in spring or fall however many of the new, lighter horticultural oils are also suitable for summer and are used to combat aphids, leafhoppers, mites, scale insects, whitefly and powdery mildew. This treatment eliminates or controls the eggs of many insects before they hatch. Not all trees and shrubs tolerate dormant oil so your Moyer tree expert will be sure to select the right application and the right time for treatment of your specimens.
Birch & Holly Tree Injection
Boring insects are difficult to control after an infestation is established. The Birch and Leaf Miner and Holly Leaf Miners have larva burrow into the tree or the leaves and cause severe damage. The tree’s leaves turn brown, wilt or drop by mid-summer leaving it in distress and susceptible to other insects.
Watch your trees carefully. If you suspect that there may be a problem, your Moyer tree specialist will evaluate the damage and select the correct treatment. In most cases we will recommend an application, injected into the soil and taken up by surface feeding roots. This will not only begin to help your trees recover, it will help prevent Leaf Miners from invading your trees in the future.
If your trees begin to show signs of distress – losing their deep green color and becoming a grey or mustard color, you might be facing a Mite infestation. Mites feed on plant cells by sucking out the fluids. Although they thrive well in the spring and fall, they do best hot, dry weather. It takes time for their damage to become evident so it is important that, as soon as your suspect a problem, you contact us.
Our Moyer approach involves four sprays that are spaced between four and six week intervals. We inspect the trees before and after each application to monitor and check the progress. Contact our tree care specialist today for a free “on property” inspection.

Trees and shrubs require nourishment to live and thrive. If the soil lacks in important nutrients, your specimen will be more susceptible to disease and insect problems and will have a shorter life than a similar, well-fertilized trees.
Our fertilization is injected into the soil and where it can provide essential micro and macronutrients for your trees and shrubs. This process improves the health and vigor of your landscape by encouraging a healthier root system.
