Cottonwood Borer Treatment

Cottonwood Borer Treatment

Have you noticed holes in your cottonwood, willow, or poplar trees? Have you seen saw-dust material around the base of your tree? These are the most common signs that a cottonwood borer has infested your tree. A cottonwood borer is a longhorn beetle that attacks trees that are already damaged due to another stressor. If you have seen these types of boring insects in your shrubbery or trees, Fort Worth Arborist Co. is here to help. We are able to help manage and control with our cottonwood borer treatment in Fort Worth, TX. Just give our arborists a call at 817-975-0180 to schedule an appointment today.


When You Need Cottonwood Borer Treatment

If you have noticed an extensive amount of holes in your tree trunks, it’s important to get into contact with our professionals now. Our arborists are experts in assessing and managing the health of a wide variety of trees, so we are able to tell if we are able to save your tree. If there are only a few holes in your cottonwood, willow, or poplar tree, our primary goal will be to keep the tree as healthy as possible. Because cottonwood borers invade already weakened trees, the best solution is to reverse any of the damage that has been done by sunscald, bird damage, or pruning wounds. Our best line of defense in this situation is to use fertilizer, mulch, and water to keep the tree healthy so that other cottonwood borers do not attack the tree. We will also use chemical treatments to prevent any cottonwood borers from infesting your trees in the future.

Unfortunately, if there are several holes along the branches and trunks of the tree, our arborists will more than likely recommend that the tree is removed and replaced with a new, healthy tree. Using any kind of chemical control is pointless as the tree is way beyond saving once the tree is too damaged by cottonwood borers. To get your tree inspected, please contact us for cottonwood borer treatment in Fort Worth, TX.

One of our neighbor's oak trees had oak wilt, so we called Fort Worth Arborist Co to have them check our trees for problems.
