You take care of your health each day to make sure you stay healthy, so why not do the same for your trees? Like us, when it comes to the health of your trees, prevention is the best medicine.
That’s where plant health care comes in.
Plant health care (PHC) is a method of treating your trees and shrubs with both preventative and curative treatments with the goal of understanding of your landscape and preventing issues before they arise.
PHC Includes Preventative Treatments
Preventative treatments and maintenance for your trees will improve their overall appearance and health. This includes:
- Emerald ash borer treatments
- Soil amendments
- Pest prevention
As soon as you spot an abnormality in your trees, like premature leaf drop, it’s a good idea to call an ISA Certified Arborist for an inspection. Preventative treatments in your trees and shrubs minimizes emergencies like broken limbs or the spread of pests and diseases.
Get Your Trees Regularly Inspected
Getting an ISA Certified Arborist to come to your home or business to inspect your trees is a great part of tree health care and catching problems before they become worse. If your tree does require maintenance, leave it to the professionals.
Remember Everyday Tree Care
Taking care of your tree’s health in general through watering, mulching, and fertilization, when needed is an excellent way to make sure that it’s getting the nutrition it needs. Watering helps the tree get nutrients from the soil while the application of mulch helps the soil retain moisture. Using the right type of fertilizer can help ward off diseases and pests by keeping your trees healthy with the nutrients they need.
If you are not sure when you should fertilize your trees, or if they even need it, contact an ISA-certified arborist at Hansen’s for your hassle-free estimate.
