Tree & Shrub Care
There are thousands of insect species and diseases that are attracted to trees and shrubs. Many cause little to no damage or aesthetics issues, but some can cause lasting damage or contribute to the demise of the tree or plant itself. These dangerous pests and diseases require professional intervention from a trained and licensed arborist.
Property inspections, detections, identifications, and diagnosis by our technicians and certified arborists will help prevent potential problems from ever occurring. Our recommended treatment program will not only aid in the health and appearance of your landscaping but can help save your trees from unnecessary damage.

Specialized Tree & Shrub Care Program
If you are looking for the best way to protect your trees and shrubs in Michigan, look no further than our comprehensive tree and shrub care program. We offer foliar insecticide and fungicide sprays to help control a broad range of common insect and disease problems. We recommend one of our specialized foliar application programs for best results.
We also offer deep-root feeding for all your ornamental trees and shrubs. Deep-root feeding is a very beneficial service that is part of our program for the fertilization of trees and shrubs. Generally, this application is done in the fall with a low, steady release of nitrogen that is high in phosphorus and potash. This application helps to build a strong root system within the trees and shrubs, keeping them healthy and well-fed for months.
For winter protection we offer an anti-desiccant liquid foliar application to reduce winter drying and damage.
All of our arborists and technicians always follow Integrated Pest Management (I.P.M.) safety procedures. We properly diagnose, identify, and treat target pests and fungus using I.P.M. Once we have established your individual tree and shrub care needs, we communicate our diagnosis to you and treat accordingly, keeping you informed every step of the way.
Our Standard Tree & Shrub Care Program Includes:
- One (1) foliar dormant oil application
- Four (4) foliar insecticide/miticide applications
- One (1) deep-root fertilization of the landscape
- One (1) anti-desiccant application
- Monitoring and analysis by a certified technician every application
Specialized Tree and Shrub Care Maintenance Programs
For many trees and shrubs, our Specialized Tree and Shrub Program will be sufficient to treat disease and prevent future issues from occurring. The Specialized Tree and Shrub Program offers foliar insecticide and fungicide sprays to control a broad range of insect and disease problems.
