Reasons for Plant Health Care

PHC programs offer partnerships with a trained professional to monitor, treat, prevent, and enhance the plant life of your yard.

Soil care is important to the health of your landscaped plants. We can help encourage good tilth in your soil, another phrase for the condition of healthy soil that is able to sustain crops and gardens. A soil with good tilth is rich and moist with good drainage and aeration and has plenty of earthworms and roots. We offer pH testing to check soil acidity and can help you restore balance to the important ecosystem of your soil. We also test for nutrients, including the three most important to tree and plant growth: nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. We may recommend Air Spading for compacted soil areas and fertilizing to boost nutrients.

Air spading checks for root rot, which can bring down an otherwise healthy tree. It also loosens soil that is keeping the tree from absorbing nutrients and water and removes soil from around the root collar. If you have circling roots, you can correct them with an Air Spade as well.

Plant Health Care Pricing

The cost of plant health care can vary according to a lot of factors. It’s a service that can be customized to the individual needs for your property. Tree health care services in Washington, DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia include PHC programs.

The first thing that will affect pricing is the exact services that you require. If you have not noticed any immediate problems, but want to be on the safe side, a tree risk assessment from an arborist can help identify areas that need improvement. Properties that are lacking in healthy growth can benefit from air spading, fertilization, and tree preservation services.

Other factors include:

  • Size of property
  • Proximity to structures and buildings 
  • Air spading 
  • Travel 
  • Extra services such as tree removal, pruning, etc.
