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.
Plant Health Care (PHC) Questions

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.
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.
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.
