How To Get Bids For Spraying Large Trees

Question From: Bath, Maine, United States
Q: Our yard is full of Maples and Ash trees and apples and they are fully grown (very tall). These trees have been practically defoliated by cankerworms this spring. Too late to spray now but next spring we can. My question is, what kind of company do we hire? Can such tall trees be sprayed effectively? I think we have too many, old and young, for banding this fall. Way too many.

A: Get some bids from certified arborists. To find them in your area go to and enter your zip code. I'd get references and check them out. Best, Nancy
