My Trees Look Great And I Want To Make Sure They Stay That Way. What Can I Do To Protect Their Health?
Your trees are highlights within your residential outdoor environment. They provide you with relaxing shaded areas, lower your electric costs and tremendously increase your property value. The larger the tree grows, the more valuable it becomes. It is of primary importance to guard the health of your trees. Below are some of the following positive actions that will protect your valuable investments.
A personalized continual tree and plant health care program will be designed specifically for you and your residential grounds by the tree care specialist. Tree experts will see to it that your trees and outdoor environment are in the best of health and that they will always make you proud.
Trees can suffer accidental wounds by construction activities within close vicinity, mowers, weed trimmers and shovels. Many destructive pathogens and tree pests invade trees through wounds and abrasions. Always have your regular lawn care maintenance and any outdoor construction projects overseen and directed by a professional arbor care company who will see to it that unintentional tree wounds do not occur.
Tree branches can become overcrowded and prevent the tree and its foliage from receiving adequate sunlight and proper air circulation. Regular pruning by a tree pruning service will ensure that your trees have sufficient sunlight and air flow.
Are There Treatments That Will Protect My Trees And Boost Their Health?
- Deep Root Fertilization: Many homeowners mistakenly think that topical lawn fertilizer is sufficient fertilization for their trees; however, that is not the case! A highly-trained tree expert will determine the specific nutrients the tree requires and inject them under pressure directly into the tree’s root zone. Injected oxygen from this process aerates the soil and eliminates soil compaction. Trees that receive this extremely important treatment annually are 95% less apt to contract tree diseases and they have stronger, more substantial root systems.
- Tree Health Assessment: The tree is closely examined by the ISA certified arborist and a tree evaluation report is completed. The specific nutrients that the tree requires in order to remain in robust health will be determined. Often, a visually healthy tree may be weak and vulnerable to destructive pathogens. A tree health assessment assures you that your prized tree is well, healthy and strong.
- Tree Growth Regulators: Mature and tall trees frequently grow taller than their root structures are able to adequately support and they are in danger of falling over from high winds or severe weather activity. Tree growth regulators increase the tree’s root density, boost its immunity to disease and enable the tree to withstand dramatic temperature changes.
- Soil Aeration: Compacted soil can be caused by construction projects, high foot traffic and parking on grassy areas under trees. Soil compaction prevents sufficient water infiltration and the flow of oxygen to a tree’s root zone. Soil aeration administered by a tree expert rectifies compacted soil and ensures your trees are receiving the proper flow of water and oxygen to their root structures.
