Root Fertilization Applications

Spring (March-May) This application consists of a balanced fertilizer applied to the tree’s root structure at the proper time to ensure maximum results. The fertilizer will give the plant’s root system vital nutrients it needs after the long winter months to ensure a quicker green up in spring and a healthier plant throughout the year.

Fall (September-November) This application consists of a balanced fertilizer applied to the tree’s root structure at the proper time to ensure maximum results. The fertilizer will give the root system vital nutrients to help the plant’s recover from the rigors and stress of the hot, dry summer months and prepare it for the harsh winter conditions ahead.

Insecticides/Miticides

(April-May) This application consists of an insecticide/miticide designed to control plant-damaging insects/mites before they inflict serious damage to your plants. Depending on the level of infestation and timing a follow-up treatment may be necessary.

(June-July) This follow-up application is determined by the amount of insect activity discovered on the first insecticide spray. Experience has shown that moderate to heavy infestation calls for a second spray to ensure proper insect control.

(August-October) In some years, the level of insect activity warrants a third spray to ensure proper insect control. This final spray will protect your landscape throughout the remainder of the season.

 

Fungicides

(April-May) This application consists of a fungicide designed to control various plant-damaging diseases before they inflict serious damage to your plants. Depending on the level of infection, weather and timing a follow-up treatment may be necessary.

(May-June) This follow-up application is determined by the amount of disease activity discovered on the first fungicide spray. Experience has shown that moderate to heavy infection calls for a second spray to ensure maximum disease control.

Apple Scab Programs

Consists of a program of three topical sprays, using a specific fungicide designed to control the effects of Apple Scab and other common landscape diseases. These sprays are spaced approximately two weeks apart and applied at the appropriate times to ensure maximum results. The following time frame is a rough guideline as to the scheduled sprays.

1st spray- Early Spring (April)
2nd Spray- Early Summer (April-May)
3rd Spray- Late Summer (May)

Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) Injections

This application is a highly concentrated systemic insecticide injected directly into the base of the tree using an Arborjet pump system. These injections can be done throughout the year whenever the need arises. Depending on the level of infestation, repeat applications will need to be done either every other year or every third year.

Anti-Desiccant

These sprays are designed to inhibit moisture loss in plants during transplanting, or to help ornamentals retain much needed moisture and avoid drying out over long cold winters.

Pruning

This process of removing excess growth and the shaping of your bushes and shrubs can be done most anytime of the year, based on your preference. This process will enhance the overall aesthetics of your landscape, helping to beautify your property and add vigor to your trees and shrubs.

Deer Repellents

These treatments consist of a chemical spray designed to repel deer away from feeding on ornamental plant material. They can be applied during the spring or summer season to protect against any unwanted feedings, or one time during the fall to provide protection over the winter months.

Mosquito Abatement

(April-October)
This perimeter pest control method consists of a topical insecticide applied to the entire property, where able, to help control a wide range of annoying insects. It helps control mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, sod webworm, gnats, etc. for up to 30 days. These treatments can be applied on an at-need basis for parties, outdoor events, etc. or through a monthly program that will provide more consistent and longer lasting control.
