Ornamental Tree & Shrub Care
Your trees and shrubs are a growing investment worth protecting. Our Ornamental Tree and Shrub Care programs include scheduled inspections and regularly-timely treatments to keep your trees and shrubs healthy and beautiful, all year long.
Here’s what we’ll do …
Dormant Oil Program
Early Spring - An application of horticultural oil to control scale and the over-wintering stage of many insects. The action of the oil provides an early start to effective insect control.
Fall/Late Fall - An application of horticultural oil to help control insects from surviving the winter.
Root Zone Fertilization Program
Early Spring - A balanced blend of fertilizer is drenched into the root zone, giving your plants a needed wake-up from winter and a nutrient boost to enhance top growth and overall health. This provides the plant with enough nutrients to last through the entire growing season.
FALL - A balanced blend of fertilizer is drenched into the root zone to encourage root growth, winter food storage and healthier growth into the Spring.
Insect and Disease Program
Late Spring - This application is made to plant foliage to help the control of insects, such as Japanese beetles, pine sawfly, tent caterpillars, cankerworms, aphides, scale, mites, leaf miners, leaf beetles and webworms. Diseases controlled include rust, leaf spot and powdery mildew.
Summer - A second application of insect and disease control is applied for those difficult diseases and to continue to fight insects. It also helps to protect plant foliage from any new insects and diseases that may become active with changes of weather.
Late Summer/Fall - A spray application of insect and disease control to combat persistent diseases and late-season insects.
Winter Burn Prevention
Late Fall - A spray application that is applied to all ornamental trees and shrubs that contains transfilm to help conserve the plants moisture which is vital to good health.
Deer Repellent Program
Fall/Winter/Spring - An application of deer spray to help prevent deer from browsing on selected ornamental trees and shrubs. (Deer resistant plantings will not be treated.)
