Do you have little white fuzzy insects on your prized hemlock? Are you tired of those bagworms and tent caterpillars making a mess in your shade tree? Our certified arborists can identify your pest problems and write a treatment plan for managing those pests. We are licensed pesticide applicators for treating trees and shrubs. (Sadly no, we can't treat your house for termites!)
Tree Health Assessments
If you are concerned for the health the trees on your property and want to know its condition, we can identify any hazards and ways to best preserve its health for the coming years. Our arborists are trained in tree evaluation methods and can provide a visual survey or in-depth analysis of your trees.
Plant growth regulators (PGRs) are one of the most beneficial treatments for trees and shrubs. Not only do PGRs reduce growth by approximately 60% over a three year period, but the tree benefits in other ways. Trees treated with PGRs:
Develop more fine/absorbing roots
Have greener leaves due to increased chlorophyll
Have lower resource demands including water.
Tree and Shrub Fertilization
Not every tree and shrub needs to be fertilized! In fact, some fertilization programs can even be detrimental to the health of your landscape and a waste of your money. Like everything we do, we only fertilize when there is a demonstrated need. We do prescribe some traditional fertilizers but mostly use products that are designed to improve the soil environment while adding key nutrients.
Forest trees don't generally need fertilization, because they are growing in their ideal environment. Trees growing in yards have little and sometimes none of the symbiotic relationships with other organisms. In the built environment, trees often need to have mycorrhizae and beneficial bacteria re-introduced into the soil.
