Plant Health Care
In its natural environment the tree benefits of the nutrients coming from the decaying leaves, dead branches and other organic materials found on the ground. Unfortunately, in the urban area, the good citizen rakes all the leaves and cleans its property of all organic matter, thus depriving the trees of these precious nutrients. It is for this reason that we offer a granular, specie-specific fertilizer. The fertilizer is applied directly to the root system and is available for absorption immediately after application. This allows the tree to better withstand adverse conditions and obtain vigorous growth. Sometimes an immediate uptake of nutrients is required which remedies temporarily (right).
Your tree may be a victim of bacterial, viral or fungal infections and insect or arachnid infestations. Our arborists are able to diagnose most problems on site. If it is a uncommon situation we will bring samples to our laboratory and identify most problems there. If we require further investigation we are set up to send the samples quickly to a specialized lab. Arboris Inc. finds answers.
We offer several methods of control. The important thing is to know the source of the problem. If it is a fungal infection of anthracnose a simple crown thinning might be the solution. An aphid infestation could be mitigated by the introduction of natural predators such as ladybugs or an application of horticultural oil in the spring. And if you have a newly planted tree, dying because of continuous attacks of Japanese beetles, through our licensed exterminator, we can take drastic measures to save your tree.
Soil and Root improvement
Sometimes the soil gets depleted of it's nutrients or the soil structure changes because of compaction for example. The tree is no longer adapted to his new environment and suffers. Arboris Inc. can reverse this condition by removing the soil with compressed air and correcting the problem by adding new and improved soil. The air spade minimizes root damage and can also be used to uncover girdling roots (left) that can than be pruned to restore vascular circulation.
