Plant Health Care

The green way to keep your trees, shrubs and plants healthy.

Plant health care is a modern, holistic approach to landscape management that turns away from the “pest control” focus of the past, toward environmentally sensitive, cost-effective care that keep trees and shrubs free of insects and disease.

  • First, we evaluate whether there is even a need for pesticide or treatments for common diseases.
  • If warranted, we apply narrowly targeted treatments to preserve overall environmental health.
  • We’ll recommend an appropriate plant health care contract. Our ISA-certified arborists will develop a custom program to preserve the health of your highly valued trees, shrubs and other plants.

Contact us today to discuss how a plant health care contract can help you maintain the beauty of your entire landscape.

Plant Health Care (PHC) Questions

What is Plant Health Care (PHC)?

Plant Health Care is a total health care solution for evaluating, maintaining, identifying, and treating your trees and shrubs and their environment.

Susceptible trees and shrubs are vulnerable to attacks by pests. Some diseases can quickly and easily kill within a short period of time while others are chronic and long lasting. Some diseases cause no injuries at all. Our trained PHC technicians are trained to identify signs of disease when evaluating your trees and shrubs and will provide solutions and treatment to ensure their long-term health.

Will I need to have this service forever?

Because of the endless number of potential diseases or insect issues that can affect trees and shrubs there is a continual need for Plant Health Care. Arborists can detect and address any such issues before they become a problem that can jeopardize your trees and shrubs.

It rained about an hour after our treatment was completed.  Do I need to get it re-applied?

Most of the products we apply adhere to the foliage surface or are absorbed into the foliage within the first hour after application. If it rains within this first hour we should re-apply so that we are certain the product is effective. If it has been an hour or more since the application, we do not need to re-apply. If ever in doubt, feel free to call us for clarification.
