Tree & Shrub Healthcare

Pure Green’s Tree and Shrub Program uses integrated pest management which targets and treats certain plant material at the proper time of the year to ensure year-round protection while minimizing the use of pesticides. We also use our biological metacatalyst Holganix with every application. This helps to strengthen the cell walls, root system and also helps to naturally control insect and disease. Our trained horticultural specialists will identify active pests during each round and apply products to only those plants that have damaging thresholds present or are susceptible to pest issues at that time of year.

1st Application - Horticultural Oils - Horticultural oils are applied to control overwintering pests on ornamentals. They are applied to dormant plants and will reduce the population of certain insects and mites.

2nd Application – Fertilizer and Systemic Insecticide – Fertilizer and systemic insecticide is applied to the foliage and root zone of landscaped plants. This feeding increases the health and vigor of plants along with enhanced color, growth and flowering potential. It also provides an insecticide that gets taken up into the plant to protect from boring insects.

3rd Application - Insect and Disease Application - The insect and disease application protects emerging leaves from damage caused by mites, insects and diseases. This is a critical time of year because insects are hatching and want to feed so they can reproduce again.

4th Application - Insect and Disease Application - The second insect and disease application protects midseason growth from pests that have several lifecycles during the season. Pest problems will be controlled for continued health and vigor of landscape plants.

5th Application - Insect and Disease Application - The third insect and disease application gives late season plant protection from re-occurring pests that emerge this time of the year. Continuing to protect your plants will result in a healthier landscape.

6th Application - Fall Fertilization - Fall fertilization of plants will help spur recovery from summer stress and prepare the landscape for winter. Fertilization this time of year promotes essential root growth and the overall health of the trees and shurbs.

7th Application - Horticultural Oils - Horticultural oils are applied to control overwintering pests on ornamentals. Horticultural oils are applied to dormant plants and will reduce the population of certain insects and mites.
