Tree Care Services Frequently Asked Questions

What is the primary reason for tree decline?

More often than not, improper planting and irrigation are the culprits of tree decline.

Improper planting issues include:

  • Too High/ too deep
  • Wire cages left on
  • Burlap left on
  • Inadequate soil prep around the root ball
  • Trees planted too close together

Irrigation issues:

  • Too much or too little water
  • Off-target watering
  • Change in watering amount based on tree maturity

Small or thin bark trees should be wrapped in the winter months (Thanksgiving to Easter). Water as needed, based on weather conditions.

How long does the tree need to be treated with a micro injection?

Recovery time is at least 2-3 years in ideal conditions (proper soil & irrigation). Disease/fungus typically occur internally in the spring but you may not notice external symptoms until summer.

What our customers have to say

Great service! When my trees leafed out this past spring they looked fantastic. With this fall's fertilization, I'm anxious to see how they look next spring. I have recommended you to friends and family

Ken Evans

They did a great job, and all the work was completed in a timely manner and just as Jon said it would be. I received the bill and to my surprise it was less than Jon had originally quoted. That's the opposite of how it usually works! I own and operate a nursery in Colorado Springs, and would recommend their services to anyone.

The deep-root fertilizing is a great way to help establish new trees, and also keep older ones thriving. Highly recommended.”

Levi Heidrich

" They are knowledgeable, conscientious, thorough, reliable and reasonably priced. Perhaps of greatest value to me has been their willingness to provide consulting and diagnostic services for various problems I have had with diseased/distressed trees, plants and lawn."
