Healthy trees are happy trees.
Our certified, professional arborists know how much your trees mean to you. Unfortunately, through natural causes including pests, infections, and nutrient deficiencies, trees aren't always as healthy as they can be. Using state-of-the-art plant science, we can diagnose and treat trees that need some extra help. We also have technology to protect trees from ever being harmed in the first place. For example, our Winter Shield treatment protects trees and shrubs from harsh weather.
Whether you need help with trees that aren't looking their best, or want to keep your trees looking great, Arbor Care can help.
The New Wave of Treatment
In the past, plant care companies had limited options when treating larger, more mature trees declining from tree diseases or insect infestation. Now, with the help of innovative technology, there are alternative treatment methods. The tree trunk injection is the wave of the future, and it's a safer, more efficient treatment process than the traditional spray method. This technology gives the certified arborist the capability to insert the desired treatment directly into the vascular layer of the tree, allowing the natural uptake through its xylem vascular tissue and doing away with any threat. This method is quickly becoming the most popular method of treatment for larger trees in both residential and urban areas. Plus, by teaming up with Arbor Jet, Mauget and Tree Tech, leaders in trunk injection equipment and chemicals, Arbor Care can diagnose and treat specific tree diseases.
Eco-Friendly spray protections
Spraying trees and shrubs is a great way to protect your landscaping against pests, infections and harsh weather. Our certified arborists are able to diagnose what your trees need to be their absolute best, and apply eco-friendly sprays that are safe to people and pets as well!

HORTICULTURAL OIL TREATMENTS
Horticultural (or mineral) oil is an effective and ecologically friendly way to prevent mites and other pests from eating or sucking at trees and shrubs. This oil-based spray pesticide was originally used on fruit trees in their dormant season to kill pests like aphids and mites, while still preserving the ability of bees to pollinate during the spring and summer months. Even though this is a pesticide and should always be used according to the label's instructions, horticultural oil is considered safe for use around humans and pets, making it one of the most organic treatment options that we offer.
Shield Your Trees From Harsh Weather
Blustery winds and low temperatures can be harsh on plants. This is especially true with evergreen trees and shrubs, which go through the winter months with their foliage intact but continually losing moisture. This is known as winter burn or winter injury. Winter burn (or desiccation) is a dehydration of the plant due to the loss of water from the leaves through transpiration. Our affordable Winter Shield Treatment is designed to protect evergreen trees and shrubs from winter damage.
All evergreens will be treated with an anti-desiccant spray, which adds a protective waxy coating to the tops and undersides of the leaves of broadleaf evergreens to help slow the process. This allows more water to be stored in the plant's leaves and stems, preventing them from drying out. These anti-desiccants will gradually wash away, so by the time spring arrives, they'll be completely worn off, and the evergreens will be able to absorb moisture again naturally.
