How to Save Dying Birch Trees in the Seattle Area

Let Us Save Your Birch Trees from the Bronze Birch Borer Infestation 

How to Save Dying Birch Trees in the Seattle Area

Is your birch tree in the greater Seattle area struggling with the Bronze Birch Borer infestation? Or do you just want to get ahead of a potential infestation? 

Blooma Tree Experts is here to help with a comprehensive plan to ensure the health and beauty of your birch trees:

  • Complimentary Consultation: Our arborist provides a free assessment of your tree's health and recommends a customized plan of action. If the upper canopy is ~30% dead already, we will generally recommend a tree removal as a Birch treatment plan is highly unlikely at that point.  
  • Pruning (if required): If necessary, we schedule tree pruning to remove dead or diseased branches, which enhances the tree's structure, reduces safety concerns around branches falling, and removes sections already infested with the Bronze Birch Borer.
  • Microinjection Treatment (May-September): For prevention or infestation control, we will schedule a microinjection treatment for sometime between May and September, the optimal time for effective results. This treatment is injected directly into the base of the tree – the Birch tree than pulls the pesticide up into the upper canopy, where the insects live.
  • Biennial Treatment: The Birch treatment generally provides protection for two years. After this period, we will re-inspect the tree and re-administer the treatment.
  • Ongoing Healthcare: To provide the highest odds of success, we can also add on an annual healthcare plan, which consists of 4-7 visits per year to do soil soaks, soil amendments, etc.

Please note that while we strive to save your tree, there are no guarantees - our job is to provide your Birch tree the highest odds of success, but reality is that the Bronze Birch Borer is difficult to beat. If the upper canopy is more than 30% dead, it may be too late, and you would be better off removing the tree and replanting it with a new tree more resistant to pests.

That said, our treatment plan is effective for both prevention and post-infection care, making it a proactive choice to safeguard your birch trees' health. Contact us today at (206) 735-4081 for a complimentary consultation and take the first step toward preserving your birch trees.
