Tree Health Care Services in Vancouver, WA
Frontier Tree offers tree health care services to alleviate problems that challenge your trees. Just like taking care of your own health, trees need care and maintenance to ensure they continue to thrive. Removing dead and diseased limbs is helpful, but there is more that is needed to keep your trees in optimal health.
Let our highly trained staff help maintain the value, beauty, and safety of your property with experienced tree care — from thinning to feeding and irrigation issues to specialty and restoration pruning.
The Benefits of Regular Tree Health Care
- A regular maintenance program helps to ensure healthy trees and landscapes.
- If your trees are in good health, they will add to the overall beauty of your yard.
- Well maintained trees add to your overall property value.
- Keeping trees healthy prevents the spread of pests and diseases to other plants in your garden.
Changing Cultural Conditions
Often tree health can be compromised by a poor start. If a tree is planted too low, water can collect around the root flare of the tree and encourage decay. For plants to thrive, the cultural conditions need to match the needs of their species.
If a sun-loving tree is planted in the shade, then the tree will not prosper. It could develop mildew on the leaves and fail to flower. If not too old, this tree could be moved to a sunnier location.
If a tree that loves good drainage is planted in heavy clay soil, its roots are at risk of developing root diseases. Seasonally digging in compost will alleviate compacted soil and improve drainage. This allows more air to be taken up by the tree roots. Now, the roots will grow further and stabilize the tree.
As part of our tree health care services, Frontier Tree will address and adjust these and other cultural problems. Sometimes simply thinning out a tree canopy that is overgrown will let in more light and allow air circulation, invigorating the tree.
Using Biological & Chemical Intervention
If changing cultural conditions isn’t enough to restore the tree to health, there are also effective organic and biological controls that can be used for a safer environment. Tell us about any tree health concerns you may have. Together we can develop the right solution to promote health and growth performance for years to come.
