Plant Health Care

A customized health and maintenance plan for your trees.

Plant Health Care

Adams Tree Preservation's Plant Health Care Program is a maintenance and improvement program customized for the trees at your home or business. The overarching goal of the Plant Health Care program is preservation. Large trees can’t be easily replaced and, with our Plant Health Care Program, we may be able to help you avoid costly tree removal.

Otis, an ISA Certified Arborist and licensed applicator, will examine the trees on your property during the initial consultation. He'll determine if nutrients need to be added to the soil and if there are any insects or diseases that need to be addressed. You’ll also benefit from a low-cost consultation after storms have damaged your trees.

The Plant Health Care Program is part of a long-term plan to keep the trees and shrubs on your property healthy. The program includes regular maintenance appointments throughout the year. You might need more appointments in the beginning to address ongoing issues or you might be in good shape and just need a check-in once a year. 

Our software system, Arborgold, gives us the ability to track your trees and shrubs over time. We’ll be able to manage treatments and understand how your trees and shrubs are progressing through the years.

Fertilization


Your trees and shrubs need a balanced set of nutrients to thrive. Applying the proper amount and type of fertilizer is key to the long-term health of your landscape. With our Plant Health Care Program, we'll make sure your plants are getting the nutrients they need at the right time. Our expertise can help identify stubborn issues caused by lack of nutrients and take the steps to resolve them.




Insect & Disease Diagnosis and Treatment


Our team will diagnose and address any insect or disease problems you may be facing. With our deep understanding of common pests and tree sickness, you'll be in good hands. Unfortunately, the insects and diseases that affect tree and shrub populations are constantly changing. Our continued effort to stay up-to-date on these evolving conditions will help address future problems.




Soil Analysis and Improvement


Your plants are directly affected by the nutrient levels in your soil. Trees' extensive root systems need high-quality soil to thrive. Proper selection and application of fertilizers is also necessary for the maintenance of a healthy soil system. In certain conditions soil can become compacted and interfere with the root’s ability to get nutrients. With high-pressure fertilizer injection into the root zone, the compacted soil is broken up allowing fertilizers to get to the roots. After careful application, your soil will be rich with nutrients that can more easily be absorbed and your trees and shrubs will benefit for years to come.




Assistance with Plant Selection


Often homeowners care deeply about plant aesthetics when it comes to their landscaping. Unfortunately, certain species can negatively affect the health of your larger trees and shrubs. Invasive species, for example, aren’t affected by local disease and insects. This allows them to spread quickly and overtake native species. Otis and the team will help you avoid introducing invasive species and, if they’re already present, identify and manage them. Prior to changing the plants in your landscape, we can assist with plant selection to avoid
