Your Trees Deserve the Care of Certified Arborists
Certified arborists help protect what is probably your biggest landscaping investment – the trees on your property.
Trees often define a landscape. A majestic group of trees that is healthy and well maintained makes a positive statement about a company and its property. At Petalon Landscape Management, we believe your trees deserve the services of knowledgeable arborists.
A trained eye is able to recognize a tree that is not thriving. Petalon uses certified arborists who are skilled at diagnosing and treating diseased trees, often using an organic approach that is earth-friendly and poses no health hazards. These arborists are also adept at pruning, planting and transplanting, as well as assessing tree-related liability risks.
If you are considering adding trees to your landscape, we’ll help you pick a location that suits the type of tree you choose, or the right tree for your location, and then plant your trees. Location is important because a tree’s growth is affected by factors such as sun exposure, soil, and proximity to buildings.
Certified Arborists Solve Tree Problems
There are several national organizations training certified arborists in all facets of tree care. These experts are able to identify and fix common tree problems such as:
- Weather damage. Trimming of broken branches and fixing torn bark must be done skillfully to avoid further injury to a tree. A certified arborist has the tools and know-how to make repairs correctly.
- Improper planting. Young trees planted too deeply or in shallow holes have difficulty taking root. Certified arborists can re-plant, to give your tree the best chance at survival.
- Damage by insects or disease. Fungi or other growths on its trunk, loose bark, and discolored and dropping leaves or needles are signs of infestation or infection.
- Soil compaction. Foot traffic tamps the soil near a tree, restricting root growth. Periodically loosening the earth can promote growth and significantly improve a tree’s health.
- Lack of nutrients. Trees in urban settings occasionally need feeding. In some cases, deep-root fertilization is required to help a tree remain strong and fight diseases.
