There are many aspects of plant care that we can manage as part of your landscape management program.
Proper plant care is a crucial part of any landscape management regimen. At WillowStone, we take a methodical approach to your tree & shrub care and believe that there are several important steps to ensure that you have healthy, vibrant trees for the long-term.
- Plant Establishment – If a newly planted tree or shrub is to survive and thrive in its new place in the landscape, a plant establishment program is mandatory. A newly planted tree or shrub will be under stress until its root system can fully re-grow into the backfill soil and then on into the site soil. It is important that timely and adequate water be applied to the areas of the root ball and beyond as part of the plant care process.
- Planting – Not only do we offer a complete site analysis before advising you on tree and shrub planting, but we also believe in the “Right Plant, Right Place” adage because it ensures that your newly installed plants will be able to thrive in their new environment. Only after careful consideration do we present you with a list of candidate plants that would be appropriate for the usage of the site.
- Plant Preservation – Our process for tree preservation consists of assessing impacts to trees to be preserved prior to any type of event, such as construction, tree protection installation, pre-construction and post-construction treatments. We will complete preservation services that consist of watering, fertilizing, branch pruning, root pruning, and in the case of absence of all of the above, soil compaction relief.
- Disease and Insect Control – Frequent monitoring ensures early detection of plant health problems. Several times during the growing season, we visit the property to monitor plant health. A report is presented to the property owners advising them of any existing or anticipated problems. If action is required to mitigate a health problem, then the property owner will be advised of all of the management options, which may include mechanical, cultural, biological or chemical methods for optimum control.
In addition to these, there are many other aspects of plant care that we can manage as part of your landscape management program in Collingwood, Ontario or the surrounding area. Pest control, mulch replenishment, fertilizing, and tree stake removal are additional services we provide.
