Tree Care

tree care

Healthy trees are just like healthy people. They need a good foundation, healthy diet, the right environment, clean air, and the right amount of water.

Trees thrive in a forest setting. The soil in a forest is created from thousands of years of natural mulching that builds the best soil for your trees. Unfortunately, I cannot recreate thousands of years of natural mulching to build you the best soil for your trees. I can blend fertilizer for your trees based on the soil that you have and the needs of your trees. I can mulch the area around your trees and plants to help the soil building process for long term beneficial results. New trees need a good start with the right fertilizer and the right amount of water. Older trees are less vigorous and can use a little help with their diet.

There are also many insects and diseases that attack trees. We have preventative programs that can help with most insects and diseases.

I always feel bad when we have to take down a giant tree because it is failing and dangerous. With the right tree care you will have many years to enjoy your trees and you will help to prevent premature loss of your trees.
