7 Applications to Address every Texas Season

January – February: Protection & New Year Rejuvenation

  • We start with dormant oil which suffocates insects living and nesting in cracks and crevices of your trees and landscape.
  • This also kills their eggs by penetrating the shells and interfering with their metabolic and respiratory process.
  • Dormant oil is completely non-toxic and environmentally friendly, posing few risks to beneficial insects.

March – Mid-April: Deep Root Feeding – Spring Growth & Bloom Accelerator

This is critical for establishing healthy trees and landscaping.

  • We use a balanced fertilizer with bio-stimulants and micro-nutrients to deliver additional vitamins, bio-nutrition and trace-elements to your plants.
  • Not only does this replenish minerals and micro-organisms, it also improves the uptake of water and all the nutrients.
  • Plants, shrubs and trees grow longer-lasting blooms and generate greater fruit production.

May – October: Insect & Disease Control and Prevention

Your trees & shrubs are a large investment and these treatments help to control and prevent damage.

  • We conduct four applications about every 30-40 days to protect from chewing-sucking insects and fungal diseases.
  • We’ll protect and monitor for all of these insects and diseases: Leaf Spot Fungus, Powdery Mildew, Sooty Mold, Scale Insects, Aphids, Spider Mites, Caterpillar, White Fly, Lace Bugs and More!

Whenever possible, we will use systemic pesticides that are actually absorbed by the plant itself. They work their way through the plant’s tissues, killing disease and insects as they do. They’re much better for your overall landscape and the environment.

Do you trim trees?2020-05-15T17:12:28-06:00

At this time, we do not trim trees. We are happy to provide tips on trimming and pruning trees and bushes.

What are the causes of spots on my shrubs and roses?2020-05-15T17:14:38-06:00

If the plant has a white powder on the leaf surface, it may be Mildew Fungus. Or a common bacteria, Fire Blight, leaves twigs, branches and especially new growth wilted or blackened.

Dark spots on the upper sides of leaves reveal Black Spot in action. Never on leaf undersides, the spots expand until the leaf is yellow and dotted with black.

For roses, if you see a mosaic pattern of light and dark, or stunted growth this may be signs of a virus called Mosaic Disease.

One of our tree and shrub professionals can help identify problem posers and identify an appropriate treatment plan. From there, we’ll recommend steps to ward off disease before it strikes.

When is the best time to prune trees?2020-05-15T17:17:32-06:00

Tchukki Andersen, staff arborist for Tree Care Industry Association says, “Save your tree care pruning for when the tree is actively growing in the early spring or completely dormant in the winter months.”

Licensed arborists are pruning trees every day year-round without a lot of detrimental effects, however, tree service professionals know more about how to care for the health of a tree. They understand its stages and processes such as dormancy and new growth.”
