Common Questions About Tree Care

Will Spotted Lanternflies kill my trees?

Not immediately, but the damage caused by spotted lanternfly causes damage that leaves the tree susceptible to other bugs and diseases. To protect your trees from this type of damage, it is best to hire a professional for spotted lanternfly treatments.

For more about this invasive species that’s affecting trees throughout Central PA, see our Spotted Lanternfly FAQ page.

How often do I need to trim my trees?

We wish there was an easy answer but the response will vary based on many criteria. Every species of tree grows at different rates and has differing implications for how often it will need pruned. Among shade trees, there are trees that can need trimmed every other year. There are also ones that can go seven years or more between pruning. Evergreen trees most times will need little or very infrequent pruning if planted in the right location.

For some recommended best practices for tree pruning & trimming, check out our Guide to Pruning Trees.

How should I water new trees, shrubs, or plants?

You may have just invested in having a landscaper install new trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, and or groundcover plants in your landscape and would love them to survive. Watering these plantings properly is the most important factor in getting your investment to pay off. Don’t rely on Mother Nature to keep your new plant watered; you will need to supplement rainfall to ensure it starts well.

"Thanks so much! The backyard looks so much better. It is a whole new yard. The two guys that did the work were the best ever."

Jack M.  |   Lancaster, PA

"I'm extremely happy with the work your Tree & Shrub technician does. I've never had one, from a previous company, that has been as thorough as him."

John P.  |   Lancaster, PA

"Your Tree and Shrub technician does a great job, takes care of his equipment, and is very courteous. He even went down the road to wear off mud on his tires from a previous job so he didn’t get in on my driveway, as that’s where he needs to park to service my property."

John H.  |   Lancaster, PA

"Your tree crew was great! Very professional, considerate, good listeners, customer service seems important to them! Refreshing! My thanks again to all."

Jane W.  |   New Holland, PA
