If you have spruce trees, you've likely heard of spruce needle cast, and may even be struggling with it now – but struggle no more! Our comprehensive treatment will kick this disease to the curb so we can focus on restoring your tree's health. The best treatment method is to protect the unaffected needles of your spruce tree with a foliar fungicide that will prevent the spread of spruce needle cast.

Needles affected by spruce needle cast will turn brown or dark purple and eventually drop off the tree, but as long as they're still around other needles, the disease will rage on. Our foliar fungicide treatment will be applied to any unaffected foliage to help put a stop to the disease's spread! It'll also knock out any of the fungi that the healthy needles come into contact with after application while the fungicide is still in effect, thus further protecting your trees from the spread of infection.
We use only the highest quality products with thorough application to ensure that we're producing the best results for you and your trees.
We'll clean up all of the dropped needles present at the time of our treatment and remove any that are diseased but still in the tree to give you a headstart. Some needles may continue to drop while the treatment takes effect until the spruce needle cast disease is completely wiped out, so it's essential for the homeowner to help keep an eye on this and remove any additional fallen needles to prevent reinfection. With our initial comprehensive sweep and some ongoing care to make sure no infected needles are hanging around, your spruce tree will be on the road to recovery in no time!
After our curative treatment for spruce needle cast, it's time to turn an attentive eye to recovery. Our team will assess the extent of the damage on your tree and make a recommendation for how best to move forward, often involving fertilization. We can apply a fertilizer treatment that rejuvenates your tree with nutrients that it sorely needs like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. This influx of resources will promote new, healthy growth that will replace the needles lost to the disease and jumpstart your tree's recovery!
