Plant health care, or PHC, is the science of tree and shrub care. We utilize a combination of chemistry and cultural practices to keep your landscape looking its best.

Trees and shrubs have vastly different needs than turf grass and perennials – and their replacement cost is much greater. Trees and shrubs can experience insect infestations, disease issues, and cultural problems caused by humans. Periodic inspections by a Certified Arborist can catch plant health issues early on reduce or correct the plant health issue.

Our friendly and knowledgeable PHC techs will properly diagnose and treat plant health issues during regularly scheduled visits during the growing season. They will also provide follow up communication indicating all pertinent information regarding their property visit.

5 Easy Signs it’s time to call a Shreiner Arborist….

  1. Leaves off Color: Trees tell us when something is wrong. A trained eye can spot abnormal leaf color in a landscape and recommend action to correct the problem.
  2. Deformed Leaves: Insects and diseases can cause tree leaves to deform. Knowing when and how to treat is critical for success.
  3. Extensive Deadwood/Tip-Dieback: Healthy trees and shrubs have dead branches in them. When trees start to dieback from the top, knowing what and how to treat is critical for tree health.
  4. Sticky/Black Residue on patios: Leaf sucking insects excrete “honeydew” which can cause extensive damage to patios, cars, and other landscape plants. The black reside is known as “sooty mold” and is a sign of insects feeding on leaves above.
  5. Bleeding/Depressions in Tree Trunks: Cankers developing underneath the bark of a tree will often be “sunken” and bleed. These cankers act like a clogged artery, restricting water and nutrient flow through the tree.
