Horticultural Oil

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. 


The tree species is often the determining factor as to wether 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..


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.


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 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.)

 Remove Over-Mulching and Soil to Expose Root Flare

A mountain of mulch, piled high against the tree trunk, does not kill a tree immediately—it results in a slow death. Over-mulching is a waste of mulch. 
Oxygen Starvation 
Suffocation of the tree roots is the most common cause of tree and shrub death from overmulching. Repeated applications can contribute to waterlogged soil/root zone by slowing soil water loss via evaporation. With water occupying most soil porespace, air content is mimimal and diffusion of oxygen is essentially blocked. Roots need oxygen for respiration. When soil oxygen levels drop below 10%, root growth declines. Once too many roots decline and die, the plant dies.
