Plant Health & Technical Services
Like you, we don't really like pesticides.
Of course, if you asked a tree, it would tell you that living in an urban or suburban environment is far from “perfect.” And that’s why urban forests need an arborist’s help. We believe in minimizing the use of insecticides and fungicides, and for this reason we don’t spray pesticides or fungicides into the air. An emphasis on proper diagnosis coupled with high-quality systemic materials, targeted trunk applications and natural predatory insects (biological control) allows us to achieve excellent results from our treatment programs without the need to soak the garden in chemicals.
Healthy soil equals healthy plants. And tossing out some lawn fertilizer for your trees isn’t going to help. Healthy soils require microbes and organic matter along with elemental nutrients.
Insect and Disease
Not all insects are bad! Although some insects damage trees, many are beneficial to the ecosystem. It’s important to know the difference, and we do. Our approach to insect pests is unique; rather than incessantly spraying pesticides, we leverage nature’s own insect controls. Our disease treatment programs focus on improving the plant’s natural defense mechanisms with cutting-edge treatment options and soil care.
Tree Management Plans
Think about your favorite neighborhood and then try to visualize it without trees. Larger properties benefit from a tree inventory and pro-active management plan.
Tree Risk Assessment
Concerned about a tree? Our arborists are Tree Risk Assessment Qualified (TRAQ) to perform risk assessment and provide recommendations to help minimize the risk of failures.
