Tree Care – Nutrition & Fertilization

Plant health Care is a trademark service in the tree industry today.  Our industry partners and tree biologists have come a long way over the past decade even.  Today, we understand more than ever before about the biology of our beloved trees.  We understand more of why trees go into decline, what negatively effects trees, and how to care for trees.  Our approach is simple however.  Most of the time, it is our environment that causes a tree to stress or go into decline.  Therefore, treatment options are not necessary because it is to late therefore removal is the only option.  On the other hand, if a tree has gone into decline, most of the time if it lives it will help itself.  We have a common saying around here, that is; “Trees can take care of themselves”.  Preventative maintenance such as pruning, tree support systems, and deep root fertilizing are the best approaches to take.
