Plant Health Care Program

A beautiful landscape can only be achieved by maintaining the health and vigor of the plants it contains.  The Tree Company has developed a Managed Plant Health Care Program (MPHC) to assist you in the process. It is a refreshing and dramatic new concept in the professional Tree Care and Landscape industry. By combining a holistic approach to plant care with the most technologically and environmentally advanced methods, our program is able to focus on each plant's individual, seasonal needs for enduring health.

Diagnostic Evaluation

The Tree Company’s service starts with a complete inspection of your property, providing a comprehensive evaluation of the current condition of your trees and shrubs. We inform you of any existing or potential concerns and advise you of all available treatment options. We then design a treatment program to meet your specific needs and expectations, involving you as a partner in the Plant Health Care process.

Sub-Surface Fertilization (Soil Fracturing)

Good soil condition and nutrient content are the most important factors in the continued health of your plants. By examining your soil we determine the composition, missing nutrients and moisture content, and then create a fertilization formula specifically for your trees and shrubs. Using our state-of-the-art injection equipment we perform a two-step application. We first inject high pressure air below the surface of the soil to break up compaction and provide the roots with oxygen. Next, we shoot liquid fertilizer directly into the root feeding zone where it becomes available for absorption by your plants. We provide proven formulas to compliment each phase of the growth cycle and include both immediate and time release nutrients for short and long term health benefits.

Systemic Injection

Insects and disease can pose a serious threat to your landscape. While fertilization strengthens the immune system of your plants and helps them to withstand the damaging effects of pests and disease, it will not eliminate them. Your PHC program includes twice yearly, systemic soil injection for long lasting pest and disease management.   The Tree Company can identify and control these and other tree pests: Elm Leaf Beetle, Aphids, Psyllids and Lerp, Caterpillars, Red Spider Mite, Two Spotted Mite, Scale, White Fly, Giant Pine Scale.

Scheduled Maintenance/Monitoring

The key to sustained good health is regular treatments and frequent monitoring. At scheduled intervals, a professionally trained PHC Arborist visits your property to assess the status of your trees and shrubs. This ensures early detection of any problem, allowing us to adjust treatment and formulas as needed. After the scheduled treatment, we send a report that details the service performed, any conditions you should be aware of and any changes made in your program.
