Led by our Certified Arborist, John Rogalsky, we enhance and maintain the appearance and health of your landscape with a variety of state-of-the-art management strategies. We know each property is unique, and we are committed to providing each customer with individualized solutions that match his or her needs and goals.
Property Inspections: It is always better to prevent problems than to treat them. We recommend spring and fall property inspections. When we are acquainted with your property, we can identify the problems that are most likely to occur and create a maintenance schedule that is right for you.
Deep Root Feeding: A deep root feeding uses a pressurized hose and an injection device at the roots level of a tree or shrub to deliver an optimized mix of liquid nutrients. The solution is non-toxic and safe for Your family, pets, and the environment. Deep root feedings should be given administered in the spring and fall.
Soil Injections: Soil injections allow us to treat for pests without spraying chemicals all over your property. Instead, targeted pesticides are injected into the soil at several spots around the tree’s roots.
Trunk Injections: A trunk injection cuts treatment time to as little as a week by injection of pesticides into the root collar at the base of the tree trunk. This application also reduces pesticide exposure for pets and kids.
Integrated Pest and Disease Management: We know the latest pest and disease infestations in Pottstown, and which trees and plants are at risk. This knowledge lets us develop integrated management plans to protect your landscape.
Emerald Ash Borer Treatment: The invasive Emerald Ash Borer has been causing serious damage to Pottstown ash trees for some time now. Signs of an infestation include bark splitting, epicormic sprouting, and crown dieback. We target this destructive beetle through precise trunk injections.
Spotted Lanternfly Treatment: The spotted lanternfly is the latest invasive pest to wreak havoc in Pottstown. These pests are not picky but will feed on any tree with heavy sap flow, such as pines, oaks, apple trees and cherry trees. Not only does the spotted lanternfly leave behind weeping sap, but it also creates a sticky coating known as honeydew that often causes mold growth. Our targeted trunk injection can provide initial results in as little as 24 hours.
Growth Regulation: A growth regulator improves health while slowing growth. Delivered as a soil injection, each treatment lasts for approximately 2 to 3 years.
