Plant Health care is to maintain or improve the landscape appearance and vitality. Plant Health Care involves routine monitoring, preventive treatment and a strong working relationship between our arborist and property owner.
Every client has different landscape objectives, so there is not standard Plant Health Care Program. Plant Health Care involves monitoring tree and shrub health. This step allows problems to be detected and managed before they become serious. If a problem or potential problem is detected during a monitoring visit our arborist will work with you to develop a solution. Our arborist will provide you with information about your trees and shrubs that will let you make appropriate management decisions for you budget and goals. Plant Health Care is a program tailored to the needs of the client and their trees and shrubs. Because each program is individually designed to fit the needs of a particular landscape, no standard price can be given without a site visit and assessment. You will find that our arborist can design a Plant Health Care program that fits your goals and budget.

Tree and shrubs should be examined annually for pruning requirements. Often pruning is ignored for years. Then some shrubs become overgrown and often weak making drastic pruning a necessity to bring the shrub back to usefulness. Regular pruning will keep the plant in bounds and its growth vigorous. Pruning is necessary to maintain a healthy, vigorous tree or shrub.
Pruning can prevent a shrub from overgrowing its space in the landscape. Pruning can encourage shrub vigor through the removal of weak, over crowded growth. Such thinning often improves the visual balance or symmetry of the shrub. Pruning will aid in maintaining the shape, vigor and health of the shrub.
