Spraying saved trees says Custer woman
I am most anxious to tell people how happy I have been with the results I have had with Dakota Tree Spraying & Service. I have had some trees treated for five years and not one has had any Mountain Pine Beetle, even though they are all around me.
The price is very reasonable, work done is excellent, and they are very considerate of my suggestions. I would highly recommend them to everyone.

Spraying works for Hot Springs couple
“We have had wonderful service over the past years with Dakota Tree Service. We have had remarkable results from the applications that were injected in the spring and then again in the fall. We are so impressed with the results. Our trees and bushes are beautiful!
“We have a home in Hot Springs and had trouble over the years with the growth of our bushes and our trees. This area has a limited amount of rainfall and the summer temperatures are very high. Our trees were stressed and didn’t seem to be growing as much or as healthy as we wanted.
“We heard about Dakota Trees from a friend and called to make an appointment with Lonny. He drove down, studied and inspected our trees, the soil and climate they were growing in. He shared with us what was happening with the trees and what he could do for them. We started with a spring application and we noticed a healthier look to the trees. The next year, we had the spring application and added a fall one to help with the stress of the trees during the dry years. After four years of treatment, our trees have tripled in size and are very healthy.
“We are so pleased with the wonderful service that Lonny has provided us. He always calls and shares his concerns about our yard and how the trees are doing. He is devoted to his job and he cares deeply about the service he provides to his customers. He always says he does the easy part and it is our job to keep them watered through the growing months. We had our trees and bushes for 12 years and they were making no progress until Dakota Tree Service showed up! They have made the difference!
“We highly recommend Dakota Tree Service for their honest and caring service. We are very, very pleased with the results!!! We look forward to Lonny’s visits every year.”

Sturgis woman loves lawn service
“Over the years I have had several companies do my lawn spraying for fertilizing and weed control. I was never completely satisfied until I tried Dakota Tree Spraying & Services. The results have been exceptional.
“Since Lonny Koster has taken care of the lawn, it has never looked better. The grass is thicker and greener and the dandelions and weeds are gone.
“Because I have a dog, it is essential for me to know when Lonny is coming to spray so I can have her outside and back in before he gets here. Barb calls to say when he will be here, and he always shows up at that time.
“I am also a believer in supporting Sturgis businesses and the Kosters are Sturgis folks and Sturgis Area Chamber of Commerce members. In addition to their excellent service and results, they are friendly, reliable, nice folks.
“I strongly recommend Dakota Tree Spraying and Services.”

Customer likes mountain pine beetle spraying
I have been using Dakota Tree Spraying & Services for a number of years now and am very pleased with their mountain pine beetle spraying on my property. I have some very large, old pine trees and protecting them and their siblings is worth the reasonable price of spraying them. These people are knowledgeable, effective, friendly and do it right every time.
– Sincerely, David Springhetti
Sturgis couple recommends spraying pine trees
We are very pleased with the knowledge and professionalism of Lonny and Barb at Dakota Tree Spraying.
We called them three years ago because we had lost one of our very old pine trees and were concerned about all the others on our property. They came out and checked the other trees around our house and recommended spraying. We now have them sprayed every year!
We bought a home in the hills to enjoy the pine trees, and we feel that because of the spraying we can enjoy them for many years to come. The pine beetle is taking over the beautiful Black Hills, so if you live in a tree-filled area and want to keep your trees, we highly recommend Dakota Tree Spraying!
Don’t wait till it’s too late. Thank you Barb and Lonny for saving our trees!

Couple hires Dakota Tree after losing 7 trees in 2005
In June, 2005 we had seven Ponderosa Pine trees suddenly turn brown and die from Mountain Pine Beetle infestation. We contacted Dakota Tree Spraying Services, LLC and they applied Astro Insecticide to the remaining pine trees in 2005 and for the following summers (with the exception of 2009 – ground was too wet). We have not lost a pine tree (due to Mountain Pine Beetle) since 2005.
