Plant Health Care (PHC) is a refreshing and dramatic new concept in professional landscape care. Until recently, arborists and other landscape care providers were called in only after problems had reached an advanced stage and became noticeable. Drastic reactionary measures were then necessary to save plants and, all too often, even the most radical interventions failed.  PHC, in many respects, parallels advances in human health care. Because Plant Health Care maintains the vigor of the landscape, plants are much less susceptible to pests. Proactive PHC practices cost considerably less than reactive interventions.

An effective maintenance program, including inspections and the necessary follow-up care of mulching, fertilizing, and pruning, can detect problems and correct them before they become damaging or fatal.

Pest & Disease

     

Treatment

Insects and disease can threaten tree health. As soon as you notice any abnormality in your tree’s appearance, you should begin a careful examination of the problem. Environmental stress weakens plants and makes them more susceptible to insect and disease attack. Some insects can cause injury and damage to trees and shrubs. It is important to remember that most insects are beneficial rather than destructive. They help with pollination or act as predators of more harmful species. Therefore, killing all insects without regard to their kind and function can actually be detrimental to tree health. Always consult a tree care expert if you have any doubt about the nature of the insect problem or the proper treatment.
