Diagnosis Of Plant Disorders

Carlberg Associates considers both biological and environmental conditions when determining the cause of pest and disease problems. We diagnose plant disorders affecting:

  • Turfgrass
  • Ornamental trees and shrubs
  • California native oak trees and plant communities

We practice a holistic approach to plant health care, and attempt to solve problems through integrated pest management and proper management of landscapes rather than by chemical treatments.


Different plant species require different cultural care. We look to resolve landscape problems by:

  • Proper species selection and placement
  • Modification of irrigation practices
  • Minimizing plant stress
  • Improving soil quality
  • Discouraging favorable conditions for pests and disease
