The Power of Plant Health Care: Investing in Your Trees’ Future

As trees and shrubs mature, following a proactive maintenance plan becomes essential to ensure their continued plant health care. As trees age, they may gradually weaken due to decay and general decline. Therefore, consulting with a professionally qualified arborist is crucial prior to pruning or feeding a mature tree. This evaluation helps identify any structural integrity issues, defects, or signs of decay.

The Importance of Plant Health Care

Following good tree health care practices can prevent many problems related to pests and decay in older trees. Improper use of lawn equipment and chemicals can damage trees and invite rot, pests, and fungi. In landscaping, “turbo mulching” is a common issue where landscapers place a large mound of mulch around a tree’s trunk. Unfortunately, over mulching can lead to excessive moisture retention around the tree’s trunk, ultimately resulting in premature decay and attracting harmful pests.

Jones Road Tree Service LLC has a team of certified arborists to assist clients with tree health at all stages. We can send an arborist to your location to discuss tree health care options, including deep root fertilization, air spading to reduce soil compaction, and the safe use of pesticides and fungicides. Whenever possible, we recommend and use green or bio-friendly options. Our arborist holds licenses from the Structural Pest Control Board of Texas and certifications from the International Society of Arboriculture.

The Benefits of Deep Root Fertilization

One of the core aspects of our Plant Health Care program is deep root fertilization. This specialized tree care practice delivers essential nutrients directly to the root zone, where trees efficiently absorb them. Unlike surface fertilization, deep root fertilization bypasses surface obstacles, reducing nutrient runoff and competition with grass and shrubs. Consequently, trees receiving regular deep root fertilization treatments are better equipped to produce new growth, develop healthy foliage, and maintain their structural integrity. This process enhances tree resistance to stressors such as drought, diseases, and insect infestations, fostering overall tree health and vitality.

Deep root fertilization offers numerous benefits, especially for trees in urban environments. In city settings, trees often face competition from surrounding turf grass and shrubs for the nutrients they need to thrive. Soil compaction and nutrient depletion can further exacerbate nutrient deficiencies, leaving trees vulnerable to disease and environmental stresses. However, through deep root fertilization, trees receive a targeted and direct supply of essential minerals and nutrients precisely where their active roots are located. This ensures efficient nutrient absorption, enabling trees to build resilience and withstand urban landscape challenges.

Air Spading: Reducing Soil Compaction

Another valuable tool in our Plant Health Care arsenal is air spading. Soil compaction is a common problem in urban environments, restricting water and nutrient absorption by tree roots. Air spading involves using compressed air to break up compacted soil around the root zone, promoting better root growth and nutrient uptake. By addressing soil compaction, we can enhance the overall health and stability of your trees.

Urban environments, with their heavy foot traffic and construction activities, are particularly prone to soil compaction around trees. This compacted soil restricts the flow of oxygen to the roots, hindering root growth and nutrient absorption. With air spading, we carefully aerate the soil, creating space for roots to expand and take in essential nutrients from the surrounding environment. This process helps improve root health, enhances nutrient uptake, and boosts the tree’s overall vitality. 

Green and Bio-Friendly Options

At Jones Road Tree Service, we prioritize eco-friendly and sustainable tree care practices. Our arborists are licensed by the Structural Pest Control Board of Texas and certified by the International Society of Arboriculture, ensuring top industry standards in tree care practices. By prioritizing green and bio-friendly options, we provide effective tree health solutions while minimizing environmental impact.

Traditional chemical treatments can sometimes have unintended consequences on the surrounding ecosystem. To avoid this, we employ green and bio-friendly options in our Plant Health Care program. These alternatives are designed to protect the environment while promoting tree health. Our certified arborists carefully assess each situation and recommend the best approach that aligns with the principles of sustainable and ecological responsibility.

The Role of Regular Maintenance in Plant Health Care

As trees and shrubs mature, following a proactive maintenance plan will help ensure the plant’s continued health and longevity. Depending on the age and species, an aging tree will gradually weaken due to decay and general decline. Therefore, prior to pruning or feeding a mature tree, it is important to consult with a professionally qualified arborist to evaluate the structural integrity of the tree and identify any defects or signs of decay.

Regular maintenance, including tree inspections and Plant Health Care assessments, proactively detects potential issues early and addresses them promptly. Catching problems early on can save a tree from irreversible damage and help it maintain its beauty and value for years to come. Additionally, regular maintenance fosters overall tree health and enhances its ability to withstand environmental stressors, such as extreme weather events or pest infestations. Investing in routine ensures tree health care has numerous benefits to your property and the environment.
