What is Plant Health Care?
Plant Health Care is the proactive approach to maintain tree and shrub health through the process of scheduled monitoring and preventative maintenance.
Why Is Plant Health Care Important?
Cherished landscapes are constantly subjected to environmental and human stress such as insects, disease, weather fluctuations, construction, over-or-under watering, soil compaction, and pollution. These stresses severely compromise the ability of trees and shrubs to thrive and must be addressed in order to sustain a healthy and vigorous landscape. Routine monitoring and timely treatments can protect your landscape from these stresses which protect your property investment and reduces expenses in the long run.
For example, a monitoring visit might reveal:
- A hidden infestation of defoliating insects.
- A dangerous branch that may fall and damage your house.
- Soil Compaction that may lead to the premature death of your favorite tree.
- Poorly pruned shrubs causing sub-par flowering.
Benefits of Plant Health Care:
