Plant health care throughout New York City, Westchester County and Fairfield County can be a tricky thing. Drastic weather changes, a variety of plant life, the timing and application of plant health care treatments may be difficult for busy homeowners to keep up with. At Emerald, our highly trained technicians visit properties several times a year and scout landscapes for signs of insect and disease activity. By applying controlled methods to areas of landscape requiring intervention, our clients are able to enjoy healthy landscapes year-round.
As we approach 2021, consider adding a Emerald’s Plant Health Care (PHC) Program to your set of new year’s resolutions. Using our holistic approach, we will ensure your landscape continues to thrive with proper, timely treatments. Here are a few examples of why Emeralds’ Plant Health Care team is busy all year:
If you invest in you property, you probably want to ensure both your home and landscape will weather through winter unscathed. Snow, ice, wind and cold temperatures can cause damage to your trees, shrubs and property.
Why Plant Health Care: our Arborists and technicians will ensure your property is winter-ready. PHC clients receive several preventative property walk-throughs to identify broken limbs and remove troubled areas before a branch falls on your property. Through preservation pruning, experts remove limbs before they become a liability, including hazards you may not be able to identify or reach.
While we begin to see the last signs of frost in the spring, this is a very important time to prepare for warmer, active months. Our Arborists can ensure your property remains fortified for any potential threats, including pests, lack of nutrition and much more.
Why Plant Health Care: Emerald checks for pest and insect activity, and if necessary, will apply environmentally responsible treatments. Fertilization services during this time ensure that dormant trees receive ample nutrients to help kick-start growth as we head into the summer months.
Hot periods and long days means that trees and shrubs need ample watering. Better hydration and summer care creates healthier, stronger, pest-resistant trees and shrubs.
Why Plant Health Care: our clients, their families, and pets can enjoy spending more time outside with the peace of mind knowing their landscapes are safely maintained. Emerald Arborists take the guess work out of our clients hands, such as knowing which custom blend & deep root fertilization to apply, mulching, pest control and so much more.
Prior to leaves exhibiting yellowing, shriveling, dropping or other symptoms, an arborist can help inspect and treat trees to prevent further damage from insects and summer storms.
As cooler, crisper temperatures return to our area, untreated problems could turn into liabilities during hurricane and winter storm season.
Why Plant Health Care: PHC programs ensure that trees and shrubs are pruned and protected from seasonal storms, which have increased in the tri-state area over the past few years. Our technicians focus pruning as well as many other treatments during this time, because this is when a trees’ branching structure is most visible. Pruning, as well as late-season pest control help our clients’ trees and shrubs grow healthier, heartier blooms in the spring. Pruning during the fall prevents diseases from spreading, keeping surrounding plants healthy and happy.
As a new year approaches, we hope you will consider signing up for our PHC Program if you haven’t done so already. Not only are our custom-made programs a great investment for the health and safety of your home, but plant health care services help improve your neighborhood for years to come.
