Plant Health Care
Diagnosis and Treatment
Our goals are to cultivate healthy, beautiful and structurally sound trees by providing a holistic plant health care program that promote their natural vitality. We achieve this by minimizing both acute and chronic stresses, which help them maximize their inherent genetic vigor. We also safely remove trees that are hazardous, dead, damaged or diseased beyond rehabilitation.
Questions? Here’s a few of the most commonly asked questions:
- What kind of tree is this?
- When is the best time of year to prune fruit trees?
- What are the common problems, insect pest or diseases?
- Do I need to water in the winter?
- Is there an effective treatment for emerald ash borer?
Boulder Tree Care offers free visual tree assessments to evaluate patterns of abnormality and structural defects (co-dominant stems, included bark, diseases, decay, etc.) and we analyze signs and symptoms that determine the possible risk trees appear to have. By accurately identifying their strengths and weaknesses we are able to offer consultation and solutions regarding health management strategies.
Pruning maintains health, minimizes potential branch or tree failure, removes hazards, allows sunlight to penetrate the canopy, reduces wind and snow resistance, improves visibility, increases clearance, and influences production of fruit or flowering. The comprehensive tree pruning techniques we use follow the International Society of Arborculture’s management practices and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI A300) guidelines.
Tree removal may be necessary when it comes to protecting people or damage to property. When the time comes to evaluate the removal of a tree we will do our best to save it, whenever it is desirable, practical and safe. Sometimes we are able to provide reduction cuts or implement cabling systems that decrease the chance of failure. If it is not possible or desirable to do so, we are capable of removing any size tree in any location, safely. We accomplish this by using controlled rigging techniques that are proven to be safe and effective. Professional stump grinding is also available.
When it come to caring for trees that appear to be in stress or experiencing a spiral of decline our knowledge of soil science is often a key element in their recovery. Understanding the interdependent relationship between roots and soil is essential when unbalanced conditions exist and there is a need to restore a healthy root system environment. Soil analysis studies:
- Physical properties
- Soil texture
- Structure and pore space
- Chemical properties
- Biological properties
- Properties of moisture retention
- Soil improvement
- Tree nutrition and fertilization
The essential elements including:
- macronutrients ~ fertilizer analysis and requirements nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), potassium(K)
- secondary nutrients ~ 17 additional minerals
Water irrigation management practices that prevent anaerobic (absence of oxygen) soil conditions:
- water conservation
