Tree and Shrub Fertilization
We apply a customized amount and type of fertilizer to each tree on the property based on the tree’s current condition and the condition of the soil.
Prevention is much more effective than control. However, when disease happens, we can help. We will treat diseased trees as well as healthy trees in order to prevent disease.
Insect, Disease, and Mite Protection
This special application protects trees and shrubs against disease, insects, and mites.
We apply a horticultural oil to some trees and shrubs to control and protect against certain scales and mites that live in bark crevices.
Ash Tree Protection
The emerald ash borer has been found in central Indiana. All ash trees are at risk and will succumb to this insect. If you have an ash tree on your property then you need to decide if it is a tree you would like to keep alive or, if it will be a hazard, remove. Trees over 15” in diameter receive an injection into the trunk which protects the tree for 2-3 years. Trees under 15” in diameter receive a soil treatment which protects the tree for 1 year.
The first several years of a trees life are crucial. Proper pruning when trees are developing their shape will not only create a stronger healthier tree but also reduce pruning and maintenance later in life.
