The best way to deal with weeds is to stop them from growing in the first place and that’s where General Tree Service can solve your weed problems.
We offer weed control for homes and businesses in the Portland Oregon and Vancouver Washington metro areas. Our weed control service is the ideal solution is for any residential or commercial property that has areas where you don’t want anything to grow.
Why call General Tree for weed control?
- Save time-You should be enjoying your yard-not pulling weeds for hours and hours only to have them grow back again. It’s a never ending cycle we can stop.
- Save money-It’s less expensive to prevent weeds from growing than to have to deal with them once they have grown all over your yard.
Weed control should not be thought of as a 1-time service but an ongoing maintenance item. Having the pre-emergent sprayed at regularly scheduled intervals will keep the weeds from growing so you can enjoy your yard and keep it looking its best.

Residential weed control
The pre-emergent needs to be applied in the spring and fall every year so Portland homeowners need to think of weed control as ongoing maintenance, not a 1-time thing. If necessary, another application can be done in the summer.
The second year of application is where it really starts to take off with our residential customers reporting a 90-95% reduction in weeds, which makes them very happy.
One of the greatest challenges on our landscaped acre had been the weeds that came back in full abundance every spring. It was a back breaking task that took weeks and even months to get under control. In the spring of 2014, I was referred to Tim at General Tree regarding Pre-emergent applications and have had the application applied once each spring and again in the fall.
I cannot tell you how pleased we have been with the results. We were told it would take about 4 years of applications for ALL of the weeds to disappear. But after only 2 years they are basically non-existent. Yard work is now fun as the hard part is gone. Plus, the application does not harm any of the other plants in your yard.
I HIGHLY recommend Pre-emergent from General Tree for anyone that hates weeding and cares about their landscaping. Whether it be on a big yard like ours or a small one, this application is SO worth it!

Are weeds giving your business a bad name?
Your property reflects your business so keep your Portland or Vancouver area company looking good inside and out by using our commercial weed control service.
Commercial weed control is a little different than residential service as we use a stronger product that only needs to be applied in the spring.
Commercial weed control
The product is rated to last 9 to 12 months or effective for 40-50 inches of rain. In addition, a pre and post-emergent is applied at the same time.
The post-emergent is a weed control that kills any weeds that are already there while the pre-emergent forms a barrier to keep any new weeds from growing.
Additional treatments of post-emergent can be done if any weeds do pop up though one spraying usually does the trick for the majority of our commercial customers.
If your commercial property or business has dirt or gravel areas that you want to keep free of weeds, contact us for your free estimate.
How do we stop weeds?
A pre-emergent is blanket treatment on the soil in areas where you don’t want weeds to grow.
It penetrates the top layer of soil to form a barrier that keeps weeds from germinating.
As long as the soil is undisturbed, the barrier stays in place and weeds will not grow.
Moving the soil around once the pre-emergent has been applied will break the barrier and weeds may start growing. For that reason, it’s important not to rake or disturb the soil.
FYI-Pre-emergents can be used in any area where you don’t want weeds to grow and is safe to use in your landscaped areas around other plants.
