Plant & Tree Care Expert Services
Led by John Rogalsky, our Certified Arborist, we use the latest management techniques to enhance and maintain the aesthetics and health of your landscape. We offer individualized solutions tailored to each client’s needs and desires.
Property Inspections: As the old saying goes, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” We recommend spring and autumn property inspections but actually, there is no bad time to have one. When we become familiar with the specifics of your property, we can identify likely challenges and create a maintenance plan that works for you.
Deep Root Feeding: A deep root feeding begins with a device placed into the ground near the roots of a tree or shrub. We then feed through a pressurized hose to deliver a customized blend of liquid nutrients. The non-toxic solution is environmentally friendly and safe for pets and children. Deep root feedings are recommended just before the hot, dry summer and the cold, snowy winter.
Soil Injections: If you don’t like the idea of spraying pesticides all over your landscape, soil injections are an excellent solution. We will inject the soil around the tree’s base with a targeted treatment.
Trunk Injections: A trunk injection can shorten treatment time. Specific pesticides are injected directly into the root collar at the base of the tree trunk, reducing exposure risks for kids and pets.
Integrated Pest and Disease Management: We know all about the latest disease and pest problems in Collegeville, and we know which trees and plants are at risk. This knowledge allows us to create customized, fully integrated management plans to safeguard the health of your property.
Emerald Ash Borer Treatment: Collegeville ash trees have been feeling the effects of the invasive Emerald Ash Borer beetle since 2012. Symptoms include epicormic sprouting, bark splitting, and crown dieback. Our targeted trunk injections can rid your trees of this damaging pest.
Spotted Lanternfly Treatment: The spotted lanternfly is the most recent invasive pest to hit Collegeville. These insects swarm trees with heavy sap flow, including oaks, pines, cherry trees, and apple trees. Not only do they leave behind weeping sap, but they also create a sticky coating called honeydew that can cause damaging mold growth. Our precise trunk injections can have a significant effect in as little as 24 hours.
Growth Regulation: A growth regulator is designed to boost health and control growth. Injected into the soil, a growth regulator will last for up to 2 to 3 years.
