Tree & Shrub Care

Our approach to Tree and Shrub Care is guided by the philosophy of Integrated Pest Management (I.P.M.) This is a strategy that encourages plant health as a way to discourage disease and insect problems.



Providing nutrients for growth can improve the vigor of a plant. If a plant is growing vigorously, it will be better able to withstand the stresses of disease and pests. Pests and disease pathogens occur naturally in the environment but healthy plants have higher thresholds for their presence.

Before and After Shrub Fertilization

We use a granular, controlled-release formula that is injected into the soil. Applied once annually, this fertilizer provides nutrients to the plant over a period of 3 - 4 months.



On a routine basis, proper pruning at the proper time affects plant health for shrubs by encouraging new growth. Pruning techniques should include thinning to encourage new wood. Newer wood will be less susceptible to diseases and pests. Newer wood will also provide the best flowers and the most attractive season. Except for some shrubs that bloom on the previous season's growth (like lilacs), most pruning should be done as close as possible to the dormant season.

Mid-season pruning is recommended for spring flowering shrubs such as forsythia, lilac and weigela and for other plants that need to be tidied up after their spring flush of growth.

We always call ahead to let you know we're coming.
