Tree and Shrub Care

Your Ideal Choice for Quality Tree and Shrub Care Services

We understand the value trees and shrubbery can bring to the exterior of your property. Insect infestations and disease activity are only two major factors out of many that can quickly destroy the health and appearance of the plants. Unhealthy trees and shrubs can alter the look and decrease the value of your beautiful property. Like us, trees and shrubs need a balanced diet of nutrients to stay healthy.

What is Root Zone Fertilization?
Root zone fertilization is when liquid fertilizer is injected into the soil near the plant’s roots. Much like your lawn, proper fertilization is at the core of every thriving ornamental landscape. We utilize well-blended fertilizer to maximize your tree/shrub’s overall strength, create thicker and more luxuriant foliage and develop a stronger core root system.

What is Horticultural Oil?
Horticultural oil is an important tool in protecting your landscape investments. The treatment is applied directly to the bark of the tree/shrub, and its purpose is to eradicate exposed insects. The application is completely safe for the plant and is a great way to curb the insect population while boosting the resistance to disease activity. Our technicians have the knowledge and expertise needed to apply the appropriate materials to specific trees and shrubs required throughout the year.

Why Do I Need Insect and Disease Control?
Insect and Disease can affect your ornamental landscape throughout the entire growing season. We identify which plants are susceptible to these problems and treat them every 21 days for control and future prevention. Keeping your ornamental trees and shrubs insect and disease-free will increase the plant’s overall vigor and appearance. While many different types of insect and diseases impact the health and livelihood of our central Maryland ornamentals, some of the more common diseases in our area are:

  • Anthracnose
  • Apple scab
  • Cankers
  • Fire blight
  • Powdery mildew
  • Thousand canker disease (TCD)
