SOIL INJECTIONS / DRENCHES
We have a variety of treatments that we provide your trees via injection or drenching of the soil surrounding your tree. These include our organic fertilizer, tree growth regulators, and various insecticides. Each of these have a specific purpose for helping your trees combat the challenges of our urban environment.
TRUNK / FOLIAR TREATMENTS
Many foliar diseases as well as insect problems require an application or series of applications, which could be a trunk or foliar treatment. Our PHC technicians have the tools to ensure complete coverage of your tree for effective results.
In most urban landscapes the soils have been significantly disturbed due to construction, road building, and other urban development. The effects of these activities produce compacted soils, poor drainage, and overall poor soil conditions for trees to thrive in.
To counter the negative effects of poor soil conditions, we can utilize a root collar excavation and/or vertical mulching.
ROOT COLLAR EXCAVATION
Utilizing an air spade we are able to identify and remove any girdling root issues as well as address any potential root flare concerns. Identifying and exposing the root flare will help improve the growing conditions for your tree.
This application helps aerate the soil around your tree and introduce organic matter into the soil. Organic matter is an essential component of a healthy soil, along with increased oxygen from aeration. A series of radial trenches are created into the ground using our air spade and then injected with our leaf mulch.
