Tree & Shrub Program

We also care for shrubs and trees with the same philosophy, we care for the entire ecosystem. We promote good health first – healthy plants have fewer problems! Our programs include the physical inspection of the plants to determine any problems. Only plants with problems are treated. Working this way, the problems are treated individually. Only the appropriate methods and materials are used, no blanket sprays. This reduces overall pesticide use and significantly increases control, plant health and quality of the overall landscape while protecting beneficial insects.

TREE & SHRUB FEEDING WITH SOIL AMENDMENTS (October – December)

Recommended every year for specific trees and shrubs to help them resist or recover from stressful environmental conditions.  Healthy plants are your first line of defense.

EVERGREEN WINTER PROTECTION (October – December)

Reduces damage caused by cold winter winds and low temperatures by reducing the amount of moisture lost throughout the winter months.
