Drought Stricken Pine Tree

Saving your trees during the Drought

Nevada is experiencing a chronic drought, the effects of which will be felt for years to come. While a reduction in water use is essential, we all have one question on our minds: What can I do support the longevity and health of my trees?

American Arborists’ Recommended Drought Plan

American Arborists is featuring a summer & fall program that will keep your trees as healthy as possible during the drought. Without the proper amount of water, soil can dry up and become tight and compact, reducing the available water for your trees to absorb. We work to reverse the soil issue and allow your trees to drink in all available water. American Arborists’ program provides the following:

  • American Arborists puts water within your tree’s reach by applying ten gallons per inch of DBH
  • The soil is conditioned to allow the water to get to and stay where it is most useful for your tree
  • Additional stress reduction treatments are provided
  • Process can be repeated every 30 days

Click here to contact American Arborists today to have the trees on your properties assessed to determine the best course of action to protect them from drought-related damage.

Other Helpful Tree Care Tips During the Drought:

1. Implement Tree Growth Regulators

Tree growth regulators help reallocate energy from shoot growth to root growth – speak with one of our Certified Arborists to discuss application. Also, using slow-release potassium-rich fertilizers in your landscape helps replenish essential nutrients that trees use to gather, store, and utilize energy.

2. Use Proper Watering Techniques

Sprinklers provide short, shallow irrigation – this is adequate for your lawn, but does not put water where trees need it most. Tree roots are typically much deeper in the soil than fibrous turf roots, so the lawn ends up utilizing the majority of the water before it is able to reach the tree. In order to properly hydrate your trees, make sure to opt for long, sub-soil injections.

3. Switch From Turf to Mulch

Since turf can rob a tree of water, it may make sense for you to switch to mulch for your landscape. Not only does mulch suppress weeds, but it helps conserve water. Also, mulch adds organic matter to the soil and increases microbiological activity, which nurtures the health of your trees and landscape as a whole.

American Arborists - iPATH

Integrated Plant and Turf Healthcare


iPATH is the link between happy healthy trees and a lush weed free lawn. As Certified Arborists we understand the connection between the health of your lawn and the health of your trees. When you select our turf treatment program, you are making an additional investment in your home and property. iPATH’s turf weed management is more conscious of tree health than our competitors because we understand that trees are more valuable assets that could be damaged with applications by less knowledgeable technicians.


The goal of American Arborists’ iPATH program is to provide a quality regimen of timely applications designed to promote root growth and enhance the colors of your ornamentals, trees, and shrubs, and ensure a healthy weed free lawn, all while controlling certain insects and diseases.


This program consists of seven regularly scheduled visits per year. Most insects and diseases can be controlled preventively throughout the year by targeting the times when they are most active and by treating the trees and shrubs they are most likely to affect. In other words, not everything is treated every time we do an application.


American Arborists was built on 100% customer satisfaction and we guarantee your satisfaction with each and every iPATH service. There are no contracts required to begin this service and, once you sign up, we will continue the service cycle to cycle. iPATH is designed to give you peace of mind. You can rest assured knowing that certified industry professionals will be applying the best quality products to your property, at the appropriate times, and in appropriate amounts. Each visit acts as a checkup for your property and, should we notice anything that warrants additional attention, we will notify you immediately.
