Sometimes, trees need a little help to stay healthy and grow strong. Bob’s Tree Preservation has its own Plant Health Care specialist to assist in identifying problems with your trees and provide the best course of action.
Due to the high clay content soils in this part of the South, tree roots sometimes have problems taking up or even finding the nutrients they need to thrive. Bob’s Tree Preservation has several products that can help, including fertilizers for different seasons, bio-stimulants and mycorrhizae, which help fine root hairs acquire nutrients. These, as well as many others, are all part of the top of the line services we offer.
At certain times during the year, disease and insects can become a problem and can diminish the health of a tree. Our specialist is highly knowledgeable in the diseases that affect the trees in our region and, more importantly, the best time and method to control them. We can put your trees on a program where they will be sprayed at the right moment to prevent disease from occurring.
Timing is critical in the prevention and control of diseases such as fire blight, black spot, mildews and rusts. Depending upon several factors (including precipitation, temperature and predator population) the quantity and types of insects that infest your trees will vary from year to year.
We use reports from the LSU extension service and our own chart of temperatures and observations from around the area to keep up to date with possible insect outbreaks. We can also design a spray program for pest control that takes the worry away when having to remember to call for a controlled spray.
