Too often, trees are lost prematurely due to insect and disease infestation, environmental stress from drought and low soil fertility, structural failure, and the unwarranted fears of property owners and managers. At Stevenson Tree Care we specialize in tree preservation, providing root and soil care, insect and disease management, structural pruning and artificial support systems to extend and preserve the life of your trees.

Our arborists focus on this aspect of tree care, offering a wide range of horticultural services to improve growing conditions for your trees and shrubs, including:

- Insect and disease management
- Air spade root rejuvenation
- Application of growth regulators
