Plant Health Care
What is it?
Integrated Plant Health Care is a concept of preventive care and maintenance to maintain a tree’s sound structure and good health. Good care will help the tree better defend itself against insects, disease and problems associated with site conditions, particularly important in urban settings which are stressful to trees.
Steve the Arborist is able to prescribe health maintenance measures such as
- Seasonal irrigation
- Cabling or bracing for added support to branches with weak attachment
- Corrective pruning
- Aeration to improve root growth
- A spray or injection program to control certain insects or diseases
- A preventive health and safety assessment or evaluation
The key here is a holistic approach. There are many often overlooked factors that can impact your trees. Steve is able to see the big picture. He can quickly determine stress factors, then provide a solid strategy for improving the health of your trees.
