Many Benefits of Pruning

There are many benefits from pruning your trees such as preventing disease, safety, and appeal. We suggest you have your trees pruned every other year. If possible, it is best to have a professional prune your trees when they are young. Pruning early on is less labor intensive and will reduce multiple leaders (limbs that rub against one another) to allow a central leader or single stem. This will create a more well-groomed appearance of the tree.

Watering

Sounds simple right? Well proper watering is the best way to provide good care for your trees. We are knowledgeable on which trees like moist soils and those that don’t require as much watering.

Mulching

Mulching is a great way to protect the tree trunk and roots. The mulch holds moisture and moderates the soils temperature. Mulch helps recycle nutrients back into the soil and helps minimize weed growth.

Pest monitoring

Many know that pest infestations are the result of the soil and weather. If you practice good plant health like correct watering and mulching, this will help reduce the need for pest control.

Fungal & Insect Control: Shrub, Turf, and Ornamental Trees

Insect and disease control treatments provide a healthier, more attractive landscape and protect the landscape investment by preventing or curtailing damage caused by the infestations of insects and diseases. Healthy plants will tolerate the presence of low levels of pest populations without suffering permanent damage. Proper diagnosis of the insect or disease is critical in determining the correct treatment for your shrub, turf and trees.

Tree Fertilization: Injections and Deep Root Feed

Tree and deep root injections can help in the recovery from fungal and insect infestations. We can treat for all insect and fungal diseases. We can include a nutrient injection and aeration for overall health. All trees will be diagnosed and treated on an individual basis.
