The Hemlock Woolly Adelgid is a non-native invasive insect that threatens the survival of our hemlock trees. Kevin became familiar with this problem while serving as Grounds Supervisor at Young Harris College. There were many mature hemlock trees on campus which he was responsible for protecting. Woolly Adelgid is treatable through the use of systemic insecticides. We are skilled in the installation of Imidacloprid and Safari Systemic Insecticides.
If you have hemlocks on your property we will travel anywhere in Georgia or North Carolina to help your save your hemlocks. Kevin will personally work with you to develop an appropriate and cost effective strategy to save your hemlocks.
We have successfully treated thousands of hemlocks since 2005.
“My wife and I moved to Blue Ridge three years ago to take on a unique career opportunity. We are managing a property and organizing outdoor recreation activities on a ten acre lakefront property where we also reside. The property is beautiful with two spring fed streams and a 15 ft. waterfall plunging into Lake Blue Ridge. Also on the property are about 150 hemlocks, some of which are well over 100 feet tall. A neighbor informed me about the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid which is killing our hemlock trees. This led me to do some research on the web which is how I found Kevin Johnson at Green Leaf Lawn & Ornamental (Formerly Grow it Green). After discussing our options for saving the hemlocks vs. allowing them to die and the significant cost associated with removal, we devised a strategy for treatment. After two years of treatment our hemlocks have gone from being in serious decline to looking healthy and putting on significant new growth. I highly recommend Kevin and the experts at Green Leaf Lawn & Ornamental. I would add that Kevin has continued to monitor the health of our hemlocks and has made himself easily available.”
