We are pleased to extend an onsite evaluation so we can form a plan together, insuring you the best quality and individual care with your trees.

The first thing you will receive from our services is a diagnosis from an expert. This is the best way to determine the correct course of action with your tree. This step is arguably the most important as all treatments start from here. This is why you need an expert who understands soil science, botany, horticultural problems, pathology and entomology.
Abnormalities or Symptoms
There are things you can be on the lookout for when looking at your trees. Spotty leaves or leaves with blotches on them are signs or poor health. Stem dieback, poor or slow growth, cankers, galls, yellowing or wilting are also signs to be on the lookout for.
There are biotic and abiotic stresses and knowing which your tree is going through help determines the best course of treatment. Biotic stress includes fungus, bacteria, viruses, and even insects for starters. Abiotic stressors are environmental such as poor nutrients, air, unfavorable temps, water and more.
Most Common Tree Stressors:
- Over or under watering is the most common cause of stress.
- Fertilizer problems such as over fertilizing and killing soil around the tree.
- Damaged roots because of renovations, irrigation or construction.
- Soil that is of poor quality and lacks nutrients.
Trees need to be saturated with water on an infrequent basis to encourage drought resistant trees. This promotes stronger, deeper roots that can overcome long periods without rain.
Each tree’s root area should be covered in hardwood mulch to provide shade and protection to the developing root system. This will also help to get rid of weeds, prevent weed-eater or mower damage and to hold in moisture.
Prune your trees regularly. This will help to promote healthy transfer of nutrients and encourage a healthy growth on your tree.
