    What’s wrong with my tree

    • Do you wonder why your blue spruce tree is brown or why your green ash tree is yellow?
    • Are you looking to buy a home or acreage and want to know if the trees on that property are in good health and condition?

    Agroforestry Solutions will visit your property and assess the health problems with your trees and woody shrubs. The assessment includes diagnosing pest and disease problems with your trees and a written description of the trouble. We will provide a remedy that meets your skill and knowledge. Correctly diagnosing tree disorders is based on first identifying and knowing the difference of the symptoms and signs caused by insects, disease, and human-caused planting site issues. It takes knowledge, experience, logical thinking, and consideration the big picture before making decisions for tree health care management. We can show you how to solve the problem yourself or refer you to a reputable tree service. We travel anywhere in Prairie Provinces to provide informative solutions to tree problems faced by you.
