TREE AND SHRUB CARE The Turning Green certified arborist meets with the homeowners to provide tree and shrub inspections. During an inspection, the arborist will check the overall health of the plants, including signs of pest and disease infestations, structural problems, and determine soil requirements. Based on the information found, the arborist will make corrective recommendations.
SPRAYING CONTROLS The tree species is often the determining factor as to whether tree spraying is necessary. Some tree species, like Maple trees, are rarely in need of tree spraying. Other tree species, like certain Crab apple, cherry, hemlock, birch, dogwood, lilacs may require tree spraying every year to control insect pests or tree diseases..
HORTICULTURAL OIL Is very effective against the eggs of mites and certain soft-bodied insects such as aphids, adelgids, scales, psyllids, thrips and mealy bugs. also create a barrier that prevent infection from fungal diseases, especially rust and mildew. Oil alone provides no residual toxicity.
SYSTEMIC CONTROLS Systemics are absorbed into the vascular system of plants through the roots, foliage or bark. They move through the vascular system and often reach the most actively growing areas of the plants. Systemics offer several advantages over other materials including: reduced area of contamination, reduced contact with beneficial insects.
DEEP ROOT FEEDING Deep root fertilization is a controlled fertilization process that involves sending the feed directly to the root system. Also provide improvement of aeration and water penetration in compacted soils and stimulate beautiful bloom and healthy growth. (woodland trees thrive despite the absence of artificial fertilization, but many of our shade and ornamental trees do not grow in such a favorable environmental. Under forest conditions, decayed leaves and dead plants replace mineral elements.)
