Plant Health Care

The objectives of a Plant Health Care program is to maintain or improve a landscape’s appearance, vitality and in the case of trees and shrubs using the most cost-effective and environmentally sensitive practices and treatments available. Plant Health Care involves monitoring, using preventive treatments, and adopting a strong commitment in working together to achieve these goals.

Shrubs and trees are a dominant feature in the landscape; they all share the same area, and have one thing in common: the soil. The roots of trees, shrubs, turfgrass and bedding plants intermingle and compete for water and nutrients. In fact, the roots of a single mature tree may extend 60 feet or more out into your lawn or flowering beds. Every treatment applied to the lawn (fertilizer and herbicide for example) can impact the vitality of the tree. Conversely, treatments applied to trees such as pruning and fertilizing, can influence the appearance and vitality of the underlying turfgrass. The care of each plant in a landscape can affect the health of every plant in that landscape.

Trees and shrubs represent a considerable long-term investment in your landscape. With proper care, these plants can provide beautiful surroundings, cooling shade, and many other benefits for decades. Landcare Logic has the experience and training to detect potential tree and shrub problems before they become life threatening or hazardous. In addition, Landcare logic can make tree and shrub recommendations, such as species selection and placement, to keep many problems from occurring in the first place.

Landcare Logic’s Plant Health Care program will monitor tree and shrub health to detect and manage problems before they become serious. This monitoring may be as simple as checking a few species or may be more involved to inspect the entire property monthly. The monitoring frequency and complexity of the PHC program depends on the size and diversity of the landscape, as well as the landscape goals.

If problems or potential problems are detected or anticipated during a monitoring visit, Landcare Logic will develop solutions. The solution may be as simple as a change in the irrigation schedule, pruning, or a spot application of pesticide. Because ornamental trees and shrubs can succumb quickly, timely treatments can protect your landscape investment and reduce expenses.
