Tree & Shrub Healthcare Services
Diagnosis generally involves a site visit and a thorough understanding of the site history. Sampling and lab testing of plant tissue, soil and foliar analysis, and/or root excavation may also be necessary.
The addition of essential elements is often required in lawn environments where we disrupt the natural replenishment of minerals by removing leaves.
Intervention to apply controls for various disease and insect pests is often required in our landscapes. We can help you identify the pest and recommend treatment if necessary.
