                                              Other companies may be available for ground spraying of gypsy moths.

Bartlett Tree Experts has provided Ledyard and Gales Ferry residents with this discount: For a perimeter spray on most properties under 1 acre Bartlett Tree Experts will charge $250. Properties 1 acre and larger start at $300. This perimeter treatment consists of treating susceptible trees along edges of woods lines, trees along driveways, and all trees within lawn areas. Treating wooded areas past the edge of the lawn will increase the cost. There will be a 10% discount for pre-payments received before May 1, 2018. As always please call Nick Vallas (860) 625-0017 for a consultation and an exact price quote.
