If you want to ensure that your newly planted tree is off to a healthy start, here’s what we recommend to help them mature and thrive in your landscape.

New trees sometimes need protection from several hazards including lawnmower and string trimmer damage in the summer to buck rub in the fall and early winter. If you fastened a tight plastic protector to a tree, be sure to remove it during the growing season, otherwise, it can hold moisture against the trunk, causing rot. These are also favorite places for bugs to nest, which can damage trunks.

Keep your trees and shrubs healthy all year long by placing them on our annual care program. We offer customizable year-round service to develop annual tree management plans for immediate and long-term care needs. Contact us for a Plant Health Care (PHC) consultation.
