March 2017: Plant Health Care: Part 3

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.

Our clients have different landscape objectives, so there is no standard maintenance program. However, maintenance programs do have several common features. First, a general maintenance plan involves monitoring tree and shrub health. This step allows problems to be detected and managed before they become serious.

The monitoring may be as simple as annual visits to check on a few special trees in your landscape, or it may involve more frequent quarterly or monthly inspections of all your trees and shrubs. The frequency and complexity of your program depend on the size and diversity of your landscape, as well as your particular landscape goals.

Second, if a problem or potential problem is detected during a monitoring visit, we will work with you to develop a solution. This could be as simple as reducing lawn irrigation frequency so soil conditions aren’t too moist for tree roots. Other solutions include more detailed suggestions, such as pruning or spot applications of pesticides.

We will provide you with information about your trees and shrubs that will let you make appropriate management decisions for your budget and goals. Can you tolerate a disease or pest that only affects a plant cosmetically? Would replacing a shrub with a more disease-resistant cultivar be preferable to treatment? Plant Health Care is a program tailored to the needs of the client and his or her trees and shrubs.

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.

We look forward to helping you with all of your tree removal and tree trimming needs.

We look forward to hearing from you soon because we are your Richland tree maintenance specialists.
