What is Plant Health Care?

Just like in the case of any other living being, plants are susceptible to illnesses and sickness. Plant health care is all about keeping trees and shrubs as healthy as possible so they can naturally defend against ailment. However, sometimes intervention is needed.

There are a number of reasons why your yard’s plants might be sick. Overfertilization and under fertilization are typical, but there are other problems that arise frequently, such as an invasive species or lack of pruning. One damaged plant isn’t much of a concern; but what if your neighboring plants start to die?  We take a preventative approach to ensure that your landscape stays beautiful at all times.

Your yard as a whole

The skilled arborists at Stanley Tree examine your property as a whole when determining how to best maintain your plants. Too often, lawn care businesses limit their efforts to what is beneficial for the grass— sometimes at the expense of trees and other plants.

When your mature trees have problems, the fun and games are over. If not properly looked after, a sick or dying tree can do a lot of damage and reduce property value. We’ll make certain to consider each plant in your yard, ensuring that they all thrive and stay healthy at all times.
