Why Your Trees & Shrubs Need Our Help
Your landscape trees and shrubs are meant to grow in a natural forest environment. They need a little extra help to survive and thrive in your yard.
SUBURBAN SOIL QUALITY IS NOT GREAT
The soil in your yard is not exactly virgin forest soil. In many cases it doesn't hold a lot of nutrients and can be very low on biology. Soil biology plays a huge role in both feeding and protecting your Trees and Shrubs from pests. There are studies that show when a plant is under attack from a pest, it sends a signal through its roots to soil bacteria, which then triggers the plants natural defense system to discourage the pest. Without good soil biology, you'll be more likely to need chemical pesticides! This is why the foundation of our Tree & Shrub Program is adding beneficial microbes and natural botanicals to enhance good soil biology.
MOST TREES ARE NOT PLANTED CORRECTLY
Did you know that most trees are planted too shallow, or too deep? They might look great for 5-10 years, but eventually, they die from Girdling Roots or Trunk Decay. When planted improperly, trees never have the chance to deeply secure their roots in the existing soil, resulting in an unstable, and hazardous plant. Good Nature can fix these problems and give you a landscape you feel great about!
Why Not Use Chemical Tree Care Programs?
Chemical Programs pump the plants full of nitrogen, which cause the plants to grow quickly and develop large leaf surfaces. These leaves are really tasty to pests because when you push a plant to grow, it has fewer resources to put into defending itself, so pests love it! It's no wonder that once you start fertilizing your trees chemically, you also happen to need the more poisonous chemicals to prevent pests. The below chart shows the normal defense a plant has organically, versus the decreased defense it has after being exposed to chemical fertilizers.
When Intelligent Pruning is Needed
Regular Pruning keeps your Trees and Shrubs healthier and more attractive. Pruning is a key way to suppress insects, naturally. Our Pruning experts know how to Prune for best results, we never just shear plants.
