Definitely! Your trees are important investments and highlight your outdoor residence. They bring you admiration throughout your neighborhood, provide peaceful shaded areas for relaxation, cool your home and increase your property value tremendously. The high costs of removing dead trees, severely diseased trees and dead branches is never welcomed in your bank balance. Working closely with an experienced tree company to protect the health of your trees is the best preventative measure to eliminate the stress and expense that unhealthy, diseased trees can cause.
WHAT ARE SIGNS OF A HEALTHY TREE?

- NEW GROWTH
- THICK FOLIAGE
- STRONG BARK

- APPROPRIATE COLOR
- FLEXIBLE BRANCHES
WHAT CAN I DO TO PROTECT THE HEALTH OF MY TREES?
There are many preventative measures and health-supporting treatments to ensure your trees remain healthy and strong. The tree care specialist can design a customized continual tree health care maintenance plan for your specific outdoor residential grounds. Tree experts and ISA certified arborists are highly knowledgeable and have extensive experience in administering health treatments and advising you on the best means to protect your trees.
DEEP ROOT FERTILIZATION
Topical lawn fertilizer applications do not provide the tree with the specific nutrients it requires. With this key treatment, a tree expert injects under pressure the specific nutrients the tree needs directly into its root zone. The injected oxygen creates soil aeration and corrects damaging compacted soil. Trees that receive this treatment annually are 95% more disease-resistant, have a strong root system and remain in the best of health.
Regularly-scheduled tree pruning with sanitized tools by a tree pruning service eliminates stressed and wounded areas in branches, ensures adequate sunlight and prevents over-crowding.
TREE HEALTH ASSESSMENT
An ISA certified arborist thoroughly examines the health of the tree, determines if it is weakened and vulnerable to disease and then concludes what nutrients the tree requires to remain in excellent health.
PROFESSIONAL LAWN MAINTENANCE
Unfortunately, unintentional wounding can occur from weed trimmers, shovels and general lawn care and outdoor habitat maintenance. Enlisting the service of an arbor care company ensures that accidental wounding will not take place.
TREE GROWTH REGULATORS
Fast-growing and tall tree varieties need strong root systems to support their size. This important treatment increases root density and the tree's resistance to disease, as well as enabling the tree to successfully endure drought-like weather conditions.
PREVENT STRESSFUL CONDITIONS
Even healthy trees that have a natural resistance against disease can become weak and vulnerable when affected by stress. Stress can occur from numerous factors such as turbulent weather, construction activities within close vicinity to the tree, and inadequate sunlight. A tree care specialist will provide you with the knowledge and services necessary to protect your tree from stress.
