Plant Health Care PHCIt is always fun to plant a tree, bush, flowering plant or shrub to your yard. But, a few pointers are needed in understanding what to look for and how to keep your yard healthy for the long term. Some symptoms to look for are: • discolored leaves • Dead branches • Leaf drop • Or infestations of insects The Arborist Solution Keeping an eye out for the above symptoms makes you the first line of defense and solution in mitigating a plant health care solution(PHC). A good plant health care program includes these 3 things: 1. Routine monitoring 2. preventative treatment 3. a strong relationship between the home owner and their arborist The Focus on Plant rather than just Tree Health Care Though the trees are the most obvious landmark of your yard, all plants including the trees share the common ground and need to be looked at as a whole. The key points a healthy yard. • Trees need to be trimmed for safety beauty and health • The underlying ground grow needs the right amount of shade and use of shared soil • The soil needs to be fertilized watered with balanced needs to each individual plant in the yard • Shared sunlight through the tree canopee needs to be considered for the health of the turf grass.   The Advantages of using and Arborist Though most plants to the untrained eye might live well with little care for a long time, to the certified arborist, they see many things the homeowner may overlook such as: • Detection of tree and shrub problems before they are irreversible • Make tree & shrub selection wit proper balance to soil, lighting and placement • The can consult with your regular lawn care company regarding any special care needs.
