Atlanta Tree Service Yellow Ribbon Tree Experts Warns Homeowners About Weed Killers and Trees
Atlanta tree service Yellow Ribbon Tree Experts warns Atlanta homeowners not to use commercial weed killers near oaks and dogwoods to avoid potential tree harm.
ATLANTA, GA, May 29, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- With spring in full bloom, Atlanta homeowners are trimming their yards and preparing for weeds ahead. However, Atlanta tree removal specialists Yellow Ribbon Tree Experts warns Atlanta homeowners that some weed killers can weaken or kill trees if heavily used.
Many weed killers commonly used around Atlanta households avoid killing grass and similar plants in a class called monocots by focusing instead on dicot plants. Unfortunately, popular southern dogwoods and oaks are also dicots, and can be very vulnerable to heavy herbicide usage. The Atlanta arborists at Yellow Ribbon Tree Experts caution homeowners to learn more about the herbicides they intend to use in their gardens and lawns before using them so that dicot trees won't need their Atlanta tree removal services thanks to being poisoned by weed killer.
"So few people realize that weed killers can make trees get sick or even die," notes Gary Robertson, owner of Atlanta tree removal company Yellow Ribbon Tree Experts. "Trees seem so strong, but they too can be vulnerable to weed killers that are accidentally misused."
To keep trees safe, the Atlanta tree trimming experts at Yellow Ribbon Tree Experts recommend that homeowners do not use weed killers in close proximity to trees. Weeds near tree bases can easily be avoided by establishing large mulch coverings beneath trees in lieu of weed-hiding grass. Avoid using heavy doses of weed killer uphill from a vulnerable tree as well to avoid herbicide runoff damaging the tree.
If you believe your tree has been injured or killed by heavy herbicide use, call the Atlanta tree removal professionals at Yellow Ribbon Tree Experts to come and inspect your tree and determine the best course of action.
