Mountain Pine Beetles & Control Services
A Touch Of Class Tree Service, Denver Colorado
Mountain pine beetles (MPB) are synonymous with devastating tree damage. Once a tree is infested with MPB, there’s not a whole lot that our experts at A Touch of Class Tree Service can do to save it. In fact, that’s why Colorado’s recent outbreaks have destroyed thousands of trees each year.
We can, however, help you with controlling mountain pine beetles by keeping your pines healthy.
That’s because mountain pine beetles are more prone to attack trees that are stressed – ones that have been topped, injured, even trimmed improperly. They may be suffering from drought, disease or have root damage. Even an old, dying pine tree can attract MPB, putting younger trees in jeopardy.
If you have ponderosa, lodgepole, Scotch, limber, bristlecone or pinyon pine trees on your property, get in touch right away for help fending off mountain pine beetles. Through proper care and maintenance, we can help protect your trees from MPB damage. Our tree technicians will:
- Trim out thin stands and address other potential issues that attract MPB
- Evaluate the health of your pines and remove dying or susceptible trees
- As a preventative, apply spray to green trees that have not been infested
- Discuss removing trees to ensure your pines are healthy and well-spaced
