Buckmoths’ eggs hatch into the caterpillars that wreak havoc on our trees.

Buckmoth Caterpillar Spraying

Buckmoth caterpillars can inflict a painful sting to people and their pets, as well as strip a tree of its foliage, often resulting in the demise of older trees.

Termite Treatment

Termites prey on the exposed wood of damaged trees where they gain entry and further weaken the already stressed tree.

Fertilizing

Annual tree fertilizing deters the ill effects of environmental stress on urban trees.

All treatments are approved by the Department of Parks and Parkways, and only licensed, reputable companies are contracted to perform this work.

For further information please contact Burdette at 504-620-2224 or email bfouchia@parkwaypartnersnola.org.

Check your home landscape for Buck Moths pictured left. They are a sure sign of the need to treat your trees..

Parkway Partners offers the Save Our Trees program to care for trees: spraying, termite treatment and fertilization. Information will be mailed and posted to our website in January.

The insects are commonly found in deciduous trees like Oaks, Willows, Wild Cherries, and shrubs like azaleas, and are known to strip a landscape of its leaves. Older trees are especially prone to dying from an infestation, while younger trees often recover. However due to the caterpillars’ intense sting, people usually prefer to eradicate their landscape of these unwanted pests.

Now is the time to prune your trees.

Young trees should be studiously addressed to achieve the desired shape and encourage the dominant leader without bark inclusions. Please see the American Grove article for further information.
