Customized Health Programs for Your Landscape
TREE AND SHRUB HEALTH PROGRAM
The program consists of a total of 6 tree and shrub applications using Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The program is a safe and effective management strategy, designed for Virginia's "Transition Zone" climate.
Horticultural oil is applied to plants as they emerge from winter dormancy, suffocating overwintering insect eggs.
A balanced fertilizer to promote new growth, improve overall plant health, and increase flower production.
Potassium enriched fertilizer to promote resistance to summer stress.
Insect and disease control for growing foliage.
Insect control is applied as needed. Target insects will be spider mites, tent caterpillar, scale and lace bugs.
Disease control applied proactively to vulnerable plants.
Slow release fertilizer is applied to the plants' root system. Proper nutrition is necessary for plants to prepare for winter dormancy.
Disease and insect control applied as needed.
Anti-transpirant is applied to broadleaf evergreen plants. Virginia's cold winters can cause winter burn to plants such as boxwoods, hollies and azaleas. Foilage will be protected from cold and dry elements, maintaining its green and glossy appearance.
Systemic insecticide and fungicide treatments
Root fertilizations in the fall to help trees recover from summer stresses.
Note: Fruit trees and edible plants are excluded from the insect and fungicide applications. Customized and organic programs are available.
