Invest in your tree’s health
Removing and replacing landscaping can be a very expensive proposition and, often times, an unnecessary one. With a plant health care program, you can maintain or improve the value of your landscape, protect your exterior investment, and make your property green and lush – the way nature intended.
While it is true that poor tree health can result in disease and infestation, you can help to avoid that problem by proactively developing the proper health care plan for the specific needs of your trees.
Tailored to meet your unique needs
For the best ongoing care and success of your landscape, you need a plant health care program that’s specific to your property. We always start by evaluating your tree’s growing conditions and current health. Then, we’ll determine which treatments would benefit your trees the most.
A PHC plan may include any of the following services:
We can treat individual insect or disease issues or create a customized preventative plan to keep your trees healthy. Our extensive PHC options provide the most practical solutions to ensure the longevity of your landscape.
Headquartered in Concord, NC, we proudly offer plant health care services to residents and commercial property managers across the Charlotte, Greensboro, and Raleigh/Durham, NC areas — and we’re ready to work with you.
