Plant Health Care in Colorado

Here in the front range our trees are constantly dealing with a variety of stressors. Periods of drought acidic soil, invasive insects and infectious diseases are a few of the reasons our trees require a little extra care. Whatever type of tree you have and whatever the issue is, we are here to help.

Treatment Options

Trunk injections

Trunk injections are a method of administering tree care treatments directly into a tree's vascular system through its trunk. This technique involves injecting substances, such as fertilizers, insecticides, or fungicides, directly into the tree's xylem or phloem vessels. This allows for a more targeted and efficient delivery of nutrients or pest control measures. Trunk injections are often used to address specific issues, such as nutrient deficiencies, insect infestations, or diseases. This method is advantageous as it minimizes environmental impact, reduces the risk of exposure to humans and non-target species, and ensures the direct uptake of the treatment by the tree, promoting its health and resilience.

Soil injections

Soil injections, or root injections, are a method of delivering nutrients, fertilizers, or other treatments directly to a tree's root zone. This approach offers several benefits for tree health. Firstly, it ensures precise application, delivering substances directly to the root system where they are needed most. This targeted delivery enhances the tree's ability to absorb essential nutrients and promotes overall growth. Soil injections also minimize environmental impact by reducing surface runoff and avoiding exposure to non-target organisms. Additionally, this method can be more time-efficient compared to surface applications, as it eliminates the need for repeated treatments. Overall, soil injections are an effective and environmentally friendly way to enhance the health and vitality of trees.

Foliar spray

Foliar sprays involve applying nutrients, fertilizers, or treatments directly to a tree's leaves. This method offers several benefits for tree health. Firstly, it provides a quick absorption of nutrients, as leaves have stomata that facilitate efficient uptake. Foliar sprays can address nutrient deficiencies rapidly, promoting overall tree growth and vitality. This method is also advantageous in situations where soil conditions may limit nutrient availability to the roots. Foliar applications are precise, allowing targeted treatment for specific issues like nutrient deficiencies or pest infestations. Additionally, foliar sprays can be a cost-effective and convenient way to administer treatments, offering a flexible approach to tree care.
