Tree Health Services
Tree care continues to evolve, so we keep up on the latest techniques and methods to ensure we’re versed in the many ways to effectively serve our customers across Denver metro.
At A Touch of Class, we offer this relatively new option to treat a number of tree pests, from aphids to borers. Whenever possible, our tree technicians use these soil (sometimes trunk injections) instead of sprays to avoid affecting other plants, wildlife, birds and of course, people. On top of being better for the environment, soil injection is economical because one treatment often lasts the entire season.
Deep Root Watering
Due to the semi-arid conditions in Denver, trees don’t always water deeply enough to accommodate the needs of our trees. Using specialized tools, we can go 12 inches below grade and water exactly where your trees need it most – their roots. Whether it’s been a particularly hot summer or you don’t have an irrigation system, deep root watering can keep your trees green and healthy.
