What exactly does Save Our Trees do?
Every Spring Parkway Partners offers the following services for public and private trees in an effort to preserve the urban forest of New Orleans:
- We target the trees located between the sidewalk and the street, but we will spray in any public or private space.
- *Spring defoliation by caterpillars can lead to damage that the trees cannot overcome. The Buckmoth caterpillar voraciously eats the foliage of local trees and has a nasty sting that can harm humans and pets.
- Fully licensed, reputable contractors will treat your trees with care.
*Trees cannot be sprayed until caterpillars have hatched.
Save Our Tree Services
Buckmoth Tree Spraying:
New Orleans is famous for its beautiful trees, but many are severely threatened by urban stress. To deter the ill effects of environmental damage, trees should be professionally fertilized annually. Fully licensed, reputable companies are contracted to perform the work. Contractors are permitted by the City’s Department of Parks and Parkways, and use only approved and appropriate chemicals. Trees cannot be sprayed until caterpillars have hatched.
Cost: $75 per tree
Having a tree care service apply tree fertilizer to your landscape trees is one of the best tree maintenance services to provide for the care of trees. Tree diseases, insect pests, and dead or broken tree branches are obvious signs that a landscape tree is in need of care. A trees’ requirement for tree fertilizer is a less obvious tree maintenance need, but is a very important tree maintenance practice that will encourage tree health.
Cost: $65 per tree
A tree infested by Formosan termites must be treated to eliminate the infestation and prevent further damage, structural weakness or death of the tree. Infested trees can spread termites to other structures if the wood is recycled and used as mulch. Applying termiticide to the tree bark will generally not control Formosan termites. Damaged trees often have areas of exposed wood that attract termites allowing them to gain entry and further weaken the already stressed tree.
Signs of termite infestation: the presence of mud shelter tubes, swarmer termites, shed wings or damaged wood are all signs of an active termite infestation. This evidence may be inside or around a tree.
Cost: $130 per tree
