TREE AND SHRUB SERVICES
We use a common sense approach to helping you maintain your landscape plants. We apply control only where needed. Not every plant gets sprayed. Why? Not only is this the law, but also better for your plants and the environment. When treating for insects and disease, we treat only where needed. We carry a variety of products so we can deal with most any pest issue we find while visiting your property.
Our services include treatments throughout the season to keep pests under control. No one can eliminate pests but regular treatments keep damage to a minimum. We offer Dormant oil to control pests that overwinter on plants, insect and disease controls (generally 3) throughout the season and finally Fall deep root fertilization. Fall feeding promotes good overall plant health without excessive top growth.
Our horticulturist, Fred, is also a certified arborist (there are only 7000 arborists in the state!). He is constantly attending training events. Learning about environmental and pest issues so he has the latest when he
inspects and applies treatment to your plantings.
OTHER AVAILABLE PLANT HEALTH CARE SERVICES
For those who have a large number of evergreens or live close to main roads where wind damage or salt spray can damage your plants, we offer anti-desiccant. This is a spray application that seals in moisture to help prevent winter wind burn and desiccation from salt mist. This does not protect from cold temperatures as many think.
Our arborists are very well trained in proper pruning techniques to help maintain your landscape’s health and beauty. All too often, homeowners get bad advice about how trees and other plants should be pruned resulting in plants that never recover or look poor for years. We strive to give advice based on arborist standards. We do have a limit on pruning what can be reached from the ground, but can provide referrals for bigger jobs.
For those hard to control insect pests, we offer either soil drench or injection to control difficult pests like bark beetles, borers and certain types of scale. This is often the only effective method for Magnolia scale, Emerald Ash borer and certain bark beetle species. Our arborist will discuss the best approach for your trees.
