Spring and Fall/Winter Fertilization
Spring and fall/winter deep root fertilization is one of the best ways to keep your landscape trees healthy and vibrant outside of their natural habitat. More often than not, trees in a ‘home landscape’ suffer from low soil fertility. We utilize a high pressure injection system to ensure the fertilizer reaches the root system. Our goal is to improve vigor and strengthen the tree’s response to environmental stress, infestation and disease.
In the spring, we offer a fungicide treatment to prevent, kill, or mitigate the growth of fungi on trees or bushes. We commonly spray for Tip and Needle Blight, Leaf Spot, and as a preventative measure for fruit trees that are at higher risk. Depending on the type of fungus, multiple applications may be needed
These insects appear in late spring and do considerable damage to the foliage of both Evergreens and deciduous trees. In high populations, bagworms can kill trees if left unchecked. We can only spray to a height of 30-35 feet as a safety measure. If interested in extra coverage this year besides the spray, let us know and we can put down a granular pesticide for an additional cost.
We offer a spray for webworms that often appear mid to late summer and defoliate different areas of the canopy. They are often simply an aesthetic issue, though in trees like Pecans, they can do significant damage.
Pesticide Soil Injection
We can perform a soil injection of insecticide to prevent or reduce infestation of recurring insects like borers and scale. Both these insects feed on woody tissue, and are often attracted to trees that are injured or stressed, contributing to the decline. This treatment is highly recommended for Ash trees, which are at great risk due to the Emerald Ash Borer. Once injected into the soil, it takes 2-3 months to be uptaken into the tree, and provides control seasonally.
Two Inspections by an ISA Certified Arborist
Often by the time a tree shows outward signs of distress such as early leaf drop or decay, the underlying issue has already progressed to late stages. During these semi-annual inspections, a certified arborist will check overall tree health, look for signs of insect infestation and disease, and note any structural problems. This includes a Level 1 Limited Visual Tree Risk Assessment. Following our site visits, we’ll communicate any concerns we have and will add our treatment recommendations to your renewal proposal the following year. Much like a doctor’s checkup, this type of visit is essential to maintaining healthy trees. (Price below covers both visits)

Tree Risk Assessment Report
Significant tree structure or health concerns may warrant a more advanced Level 2 or Level 3 risk assessment performed by an ISA Certified Arborist with a qualification in Tree Risk Assessment (TRAQ) to thoroughly evaluate tree condition and risk of failure. The purpose is to establish whether the tree in question poses an immediate threat to persons or property. If a threat is identified, the arborist will recommend appropriate measures to take in terms of mitigation, maintenance, or removal. The results are presented in a Tree Risk Assessment Report that includes field observations, noted defects, pictures, testing results, and recommendations. Landowners have a “duty of care” for tree maintenance on their property and must prevent injury to a neighbor’s person or property. This report helps property owners meet their duty of care pertaining to the hazards and risks associated with their trees. This report may also be used to help settle legal disputes. Price is an hourly rate with a minimum charge of 1 hour, and includes travel time to and from location and time to prepare the report.

Each of your trees/shrubs have specific nutrient needs. Some prefer alkaline or acidic soil, some prefer ground that’s closer to true neutral. The soil itself may lack certain key nutrients or have an overabundance of a particular element. A soil test measures pH value and availability of nutrients. The samples taken from your property will be tested, then analyzed by an ISA Certified Arborist. We can provide recommendations or advice based on test results.
Soil amendment:Have a tree that has always underperformed and unsure why? If your soil isn’t conducive to the type of tree planted, you’ll likely notice evidence of slow/stunted growth, yellow or “burnt” leaves, leaf curling, or wilt. Let us perform a soil test to evaluate whether your soil is a good match for the tree species growing in that area. We can then recommend products to amend your soil, if needed, so the established trees growing there have a better chance to survive & thrive.
New tree planting: Looking to plant trees but unsure which species will thrive in your landscape environment? Soil tests have the potential to save you a lot of money, especially when done as a preliminary measure. As a whole, they can be one of the most cost-effective things you purchase before a landscaping project. The test will provide us with the data needed to recommend the best trees for your specific soil type.
