March 2017: Plant Health Care: Part 2

At Top Tree LLC, we do our best to promote and give out the best plant and tree health advice we can. No matter what, we welcome any questions you have regarding your trees and plants on your property.

Tree Health Care
While trees are dominant features in your home landscape, they share this area with grasses, shrubs, and other plants. These plants are bedded in a common resource: soil. The roots of trees, shrubs, turf grass, and bedding plants comingle and compete for water and nutrients. The roots of a single mature tree may extend well into your lawn or flower beds. Every treatment applied to the lawn (fertilizer and herbicide, for example) can impact the appearance and vitality of a tree. Conversely, treatments applied to a tree, such as pruning and fertilizing, can influence the appearance and vitality of the underlying turf grass. The care of each plant in a landscape can affect the health of every plant in that landscape.

Why Contact Us?
We have the experience and training to detect many potential tree and shrub problems before they become life-threatening or hazardous. Arborists can also make tree and shrub recommendations, such as species selection and placement, to prevent problems from occurring in the first place. In addition, we can consult with other landscape and lawn care services you may use to ensure that the treatments are coordinated and will not be harmful to your trees and shrubs. Remember, the potential size and longevity of trees and shrubs warrants special attention in your landscape. Bedding plants can be replaced in a few short weeks and a lawn in a single growing season, but it can take a lifetime or more to replace a mature tree.

As always, we look forward to helping you with any of your tree maintenance needs. Our trained arborists can make any recommendations as well as do just about any task you need done regarding the maintenance of your trees.
