Green Sheet Tips

 
   

March - April (Worland WY: Jackson Hole, WY) Lawn, & Tree Care

TREES

  • Conifer trees need to be sprayed as the new growth is emerging to prevent against COOLEY SPRUCE GALLS (resemble brown pinecones at the tips of spruce tree branches).
  • Be on the lookout for brown or grey-green areas on the inside of spruce, this is an early indication that your tree may have an epidemic of SPIDER MITES.
  • Those of you with cottonwoods that have large black, corky looking growths out on the tips and along the lower branches have MITES.  They reduce the health of your trees (by reducing the number of leaves that produce food for your tree) and should really be sprayed.
  • Do you have DEAD BOTTOM BRANCHES on any of your spruce trees?  Ninety-five (95%) of the time it is directly related to trees that were transplanted between 3 and 15 years ago and it causes death of the tree.

 

LAWNS

  • The first lawn disease that shows up at this time of year is LEAFSPOT DISEASE.  If you have yellowing areas and some grass begins to die, do not rake the dead grass out until you have consulted with one of our Client Representatives.
  • BLACK MEDIC is a very destructive clover species that is characterized by its almost Black-green color (hence its name) and very small yellow flowers the size of the tip on a wooden match.
  • DRY SPOTS and YELLOW SPOTS can indicate a soil condition where the soil is unable to absorb water which prevents nutrient uptake.  We can control this problem with a specialized product.

 

PEST CONTROL

  • Rodent activity is increasing because their winter homes have melted away or have been plowed under.  They are also having BABIES LEFT AND RIGHT, look for droppings along baseboards.  
  • Fact or Fiction:  Spiders can CRAWL INTO OUR MOUTHS while we are sleeping and we can swallow them!? 
  • Did you know that pests can carry 30 Different Diseases including E- COLI, Strep and Salmonella? Ask your favorite restaurant managers if their establishment has a "Pest Protection Plan" by Green Turf Pest Control.  
  • Ants are back to work outside and are venturing into your structures; kitchen areas, bathrooms, garages and along sidewalks are the first noticeable indication of problems on your horizon.

Trees

  • Conifer trees need to be sprayed as the new growth is emerging to prevent against COOLEY SPRUCE GALLS (resemble brown pinecones at the tips of spruce tree branches).  Call for a preventive treatment estimate today if you see these little, dry, brown, porcupine looking structures at the tips of your spruce trees.

Lawns

  • Dandelions are in full bloom.  Over the last 30 years, we have only used a unique weed spraying mixture that kill the weeds but won't harm your tree roots as can be the case with "LIQUID" lawn care companies.  We apply a thin effective film,  but "Liquid" companies can spray a heavy volume that leached deep into the soil.
  • The first lawn disease that shows up at this time of year is LEAFSPOT DISEASE.  If you have yellowing areas and some grass begins to die, do not rake the dead grass out until you have consulted with one of our Client Representatives.

  • 5 Step Regular customers received a Free Crabgrass Preemergent to control crabgrass.  If you are an Economy 4 step client you would not have received this service.  If you would like to upgrade to the Regular Program you must call today to get on our list.  Once the crabgrass begins to become noticeable in August, it's too late.
