Plant Health Care Explained
In recent years, the tree care industry adopted the term “plant health care” (PHC) to describe a new holistic approach to the health of plants. The idea was to shift focus away from merely preventing pest damage, changing not only techniques but attitudes as well. Steps in plant health care include:
- Identifying all plants in the landscape
- Determining key problems
- Studying the landscape ecosystem to understand relationships
- Frequently monitoring for pests, irrigation, fertility, and weather
- Optimizing plant health with smart planning and good practices
Our ISA-certified arborists are trained in all aspects of PHC to identify signs of disease and provide solutions and treatment designed to ensure the long-term health of your trees, shrubs and plants. Give us a jingle at 717-393-7602 or 610-436-0161 for more information.
