Are you interested in plant health care for your landscaping? Call the Atlanta, GA experts - Boutte Tree, Inc.
Trees and people have a lot in common. Doctors can help when you’re feeling ill or are sick, but prevention is almost always the best medicine. This is why with trees, plant health care can keep them healthy and happy while avoiding problems later. Problems that could lead to costly expenses or even the loss of a tree.
Many homeowners avoid plant health care because they think it will be expensive and time-consuming. Or they may just not know where to start. With Boutte Tree, Inc., we’ll help put your mind at ease. Our expert arborists can see to all of your plant health care needs.
Preventative Care Saves You Money
Many urban trees are growing in poor conditions, such as highly compacted soils low in organic matter and microbial life. In an urban environment, leaf litter that decomposes and provides natural fertilizers for our trees is cleared away. Grass is planted under trees, creating competition for water and nutrients, and then mowed with heavy equipment that compacts the soil. When homes are built, topsoil is removed and roots are damaged. Traditional fertilizers high in Nitrogen can produce excessive canopy growth, which can be problematic when trees lack the required root system to support extra growth. These things combined can leave trees in a weakened state, predisposing them to attacks from insects and disease.
If you have trees on your property, plant health care is very important. Trees offer a variety of benefits, from shade to better health, an increase in our home’s value and cleaner air. Taking an interest in plant health care is the easiest way to keep your trees healthy, and healthy trees do better to resist illness and pests.
And, of course, caring about your trees and their health is typically much cheaper than dealing with an overlooked tree problem. Because once a tree has declined past a certain point they can’t be saved, and you’ll have to pay to have them removed.
How Can We Help?
One of the best ways to keep your trees healthy and happy is to tackle smaller chores throughout the year. The steps below are some of the easiest ways to practice good plant health care and to keep your trees healthy all year long:
- Routine Supervision – Because trees can’t tell us when something is wrong, they rely on us to keep our eyes on them and be on the lookout for any problems. Be aware of any changes in their appearance. Illness and parasites can often be stopped if caught early enough.
- Food - Trees need food just like people. They can and do pull nutrients from the ground, but they’re stationary, too, which is why it can be so important to regularly feed them with a nutrient-rich fertilizer. Your trees will thank you with fuller, denser foliage and beautiful crowns. And isn’t a beautiful tree one of the main reasons for having them in the first place?
- Drink – And besides food, trees require water and sunlight to grow. In fact, your trees may need to be watered just as frequently as your lawn. If it’s hot outside don't neglect your trees. This will help them stay healthy.
