Specializing in Ash Tree Protection
Adjacent is an adult Emerald Ash Borer. The larvae of this insect is destroying Ash trees all across the country. Using the Arborjet tree injection method, we can save these trees. Many parts of the Buffalo area have already lost thousands of Ash trees to this pest. Call us today for a free estimate.
Results of Our Emerald Ash Borer Injections:
98% of our treated Ash trees have been saved on average!
Much depends on the tree’s condition at treatment. Here is the breakdown:
5,958 Ash trees treated in the last 7 years. (Trees treated in 2018, 2019 not fully evaluated yet.)
99.9% success for treatment of trees damaged less than 30% by visual inspection of tree canopy.
86% success for treatment of Ash trees damaged 30-50% by visual inspection of tree canopy.
For trees damaged over 50%, the success rate diminishes rapidly.

What's the next pest threat coming to Western New York?
The Spotted Lanternfly!
So far, only dead adults have been found in New York, but this pest has devastated many parts of Pennsylvania. They are an incredible nuisance because they excrete a sticky substance that collects on anything below the trees affected, not just the leaves. That means toys, patios, decks, outdoor furniture, etc. Then this sticky excrement usually causes a black mold to grow.

Update 12-7-2020: The Spotted Lanternfly has been found in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. We don't know how long it will be before entering the Buffalo area. You can keep up to date on the spread of this pest here:
About us: The Williams family name has been associated with quality lawn and tree care for likely as long as any other family name in Western New York. It started in the 1950's with Williams Tree Surgeons run by Phinnie Williams, his wife Helen, and their son David Williams, Sr.. This became Williams Spray Service in the early 1980's, a business caring for both trees and lawns. David's son, David Jr., began operating Williams Lawn Care in 1982 to the present day, along with his wife Lisa.
