Wisconsin Tree Diagnostics and Treatment
Certified Arborists Provide Comprehensive Tree Care
Most native Wisconsin tree species can live for decades given the right conditions. Ample sunlight, water, and nutrient soil will promote the healthy growth on trees on your property. Yet just like other living organisms, trees can become sick or die. The certified Milwaukee arborists at Russ’s Tree Service offer complete tree diagnostics and tree care services throughout southeastern Wisconsin.
We specialize in comprehensive treatment for tree damage incurred by invasive species like the Wisconsin EAB (Emerald Ash Borer), Gypsy Moths, Silver Maple Beetles and other problematic insects. Russ’s Tree Service also treats harmful tree diseases like Oak Wilt, Dothistroma Needle Blight and leaf blight, spotting and blotching. Our Milwaukee area certified arborists are experts at quickly and accurately identifying tree and plant problems, then developing a treatment plan to protect your trees and plants against future damage.

Emerald Ash Borer Prevention and Treatment
Many Wisconsin property owners have already seen the damage caused to trees by Emerald Ash Borer infestations. Prevention is far easier than treating a full infestation, so our arborists recommend getting pre-treatment for all your ash trees.
8 Signs Your Trees Have an Insect Infestation
- Carved out areas in the wood that look like trails
- Small holes where insects enter and exit
- Small piles of sawdust on branches, bark or at base of tree
- Dying leaves & branches
- Sap oozing from dark pits in the bark
- Patchy areas of yellow leaves or needles
- Masses of small eggs in a foamy, sticky material
- Cottony sacks full of eggs under branches
If you notice these symptoms, please call Russ’s Tree Service. Fast treatment from our arborists can remove the infestation or start the tree removal process to protect the surrounding trees.
Common Wisconsin Tree Diseases
- Oak Wilt
- Dothistroma Needle Blight
- Beech Bark Disease
- Fungus and mold
The arborists of Russ’s Tree Service provide professional tree treatment of diseased trees. Like insect infestations, the best treatment is prevention. We still do everything possible to save diseased trees. If a tree is too far along or already dead, tree removal may be necessary to stop the spread of infection to other tree roots.
Benefits of Healthy Trees
Trees are a major part of our eco-system. A sick or dead tree on your property means the loss of natural shade, a habitat for animals, and lower property value. Keep your trees healthy with our tree diagnostic and treatment care plans, as well as tree fertilization, pruning, trimming and complete tree maintenance services.
Russ’s Tree Service provides tree care services to residential and commercial properties throughout southeastern Wisconsin, including Milwaukee, Waukesha, Brookfield, Racine, Kenosha, West Allis, Union Grove and Muskego.
