The Emerald Ash Borer has made it to Vermont

Take Action Before Removal is Your Only Option

With known infestations now occuring across Vermont, all untreated ash trees are at high risk for becoming infested. As ash trees were commonly planted in our geography, there is a good chance you may have one in your yard. Unfortunately, all infested trees will die as a result of this invasive pest. If you have an ash tree, do you have a plan for its protection or removal? 

Take action before your tree(s) become infested. Once you see the visible symptoms of an EAB infestation, treatment options may no longer be effective.
Now is the time to choose from your options, before EAB makes it for you!

  • Have your ash tree(s) evaluated by one of our ISA Certified Arborists
  • Your evaluation will include assessment of tree-health and your personal landscape goals
  • Protect any ash trees you wish to save with proven treatments
  • Proactively remove any living ash trees that are not a priority
  • Reactively removing a dead tree is more dangerous, and can be significantly more expensive than live tree removal

Protecting your ash tree for 20 years is less than the cost of removal and replacement. Plus, you have the added benefit of retaining the value of a mature tree in your landscape!

Healthy plants create beautiful yards.

From insect and disease problems, to construction damage or environmental stresses, trees can struggle and often the owner doesn't know why. We have certified arborists ready to diagnose the problem and come up with a cost-effective solution.


root healthRoot Health

A healthy root system anchors a tree in place, and exacts nutrients and water from the soil necessary for proper growth.  Soil compacted around your tree’s roots, from heavy wheel or foot traffic, can cause incredible stress to these vital systems, and usher in a host of problems.  
Vermont Arborists utilizes a specific scientific process to break up soil compaction around the root system.  Following this, our trained arborists can begin remediation through nutrient management and proper mulching tailored to your trees specific needs.




Proper fertilization, expertly tailored to your plants needs, can ensure long-term health and nutrition- creating optimum root development, improving absorption, and aiding in resistance to insects and disease. This process generally involves injecting or spryaing a liquid fertilizer onto the roots of your tree.  




mulchingMulching & Composting

Mulching and composting are a tailored process involving peeling back any lawn or other barrier and spreading organic matter directly over your trees root system. Our trained arborists will blend and apply the correct combination to help jump start your tree's root system. 





Disease and insects can compromise the health and longevity of your trees. At Vermont Arborists, our technicians are licensed through the state of Vermont to safely spray trees with oils, and biological and chemical agents. We utilize state of the art machinery for even distribution, and always strive for the most environmentally sound solutions.
