Tree and Shrub Spraying

At Parshalls we utilize a variety of application methods and each has its time and place. Tree and shrub spraying is another way we promote a healthy landscape. Some diseases, insects, and nutrient deficiencies are best fixed by a foliar spray from one of our experts.

Spray treatments are the most effective and cost efficient method to regain tree health by fighting insect pests and tree diseases. Parshall Tree Care first has a certified arborist inspect your tree to diagnose the problem. After diagnosis, we treat your trees with the right product at the right time to target the problem.

All Parshall Tree Care spray technicians are licensed pesticide applicators. By using products targeted to your specific insect or disease, and carefully timed application, we minimize the amount of chemical needed to solve your problem. With safety as our primary concern we wear all required personal protection equipment and follow the individual labels. Timing is the key to a successful treatment.  The staff at Parshalls carefully monitors environmental cues to determine the ideal time for the spray to occur. Weather is a factor.  We will not spray while it is raining.  We will also not spray if it is too windy, as wind leads to “chemical drift,” which is illegal.

Some reasons to spray:

  • Insect pest control
  • Tree and Shrub Disease Control
  • Anti-transpirants (controlling water loss in winter)
  • Nutrient Deficiencies
  • Fertilizations


"Now that I'm in a place where I don't have trees to be taken care of, I'll still give you guys two thumbs up. I always could count on you to come in, take down the trees, clean it all up and then W H A T ? Where were those trees again? And also your congenial atmosphere was always wonderful!"
Miss you guys, Barb Jacob

The stump grinding you did was in extremely hard to reach places and some you had doubts that you could get to but in the end you found a way to do them all! Also, we thought that we would be doing the clean up as it was not on your quote but you did that as well. Our place looks great now!
