Plant Health Care

A holistic approach to balance health

and aesthetics for healthy plants.

Plant health care is a holistic approach to manage and balance the health and aesthetics of plants in a landscape, as well as the needs of the owner. The primary goal is to create healthy plants in order to minimize the negative effects of pests, diseases, and extreme environmental conditions. Our PHC program utilizes Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques to help us reduce the effects of treatments on non-target species and lower environmental impact, while still providing safe and effective control of pests.

Insect & Disease Control

Insects can cause major damage to trees if left unchecked. Our control measures are designed to provide effective control of the pest, while minimizing impact on beneficial insects and other non-target species.

 

Diseases can make a tree unsightly, unhealthy, or even unsafe. Our disease control programs are designed to reduce plant stress by effectively managing diseases using products with a favorable environmental profile.
