FERTILIZATION AND SOIL CARE
Sampling and analyzing soil to make specific recommendations for every tree or tree on a house.
Healthy plants begin with soils that are healthy.
Fertilization is just the start. Adjusting soil pH and ensuring adequate organic matter is present will also be crucial to soils that are healthy. For plants in urban and suburb lands,
Our Tree Experts can mimic the optimal conditions for expansion. In fact, our Root Invigoration process unites all the above into one treatment to accomplish this objective.
Improving aeration, incorporating nutrients, and reducing soil compaction with atmosphere spade.
Our patented Root Invigoration program, developed by scientists in the Bartlett Tree Research Laboratories to improve soil conditions, comprises many plant health treatments. By employing high-volume air via a tool, it loosens the soil to improve aeration and reduce compaction, without any negative influence on the main system.
During this process, the soil chemistry is adjusted by prescription to best favor the plant. Organic matter is comprised, as it is commonly conducive to lands, also due to the numerous physical and chemical benefits it gives. A Bartlett Arborist Representative can determine whether trees on your property would benefit from this service.
Root System Management
Looking at problems posed around the base of tree.
Utah Aspen Tree Experts offers a range of treatments to both encourage root development, as well as prevent root encroachment beneath sidewalks and drives. Homeowners Frequent light irrigation also might increase the likelihood that trees develop surface roots. Once surface roots become a problem, there’s very little that can be done to correct the The Southeast has the highest frequency of lightning storms within the country with Florida becoming the leading nation. Lightning may kill trees or weaken them so severely that they’re then attacked and killed by insects or other secondary invaders. In several cases, lightning struck trees must be removed due to structural degradation caused by the heat and mechanical forces created by the electrical charge.
In fact, lightning rarely damages trees equipped with a system which has been installed in compliance with ANSI A300 Standards, which have been adopted by The Tree Care Industry Association. While lightning strikes are inconsistent, and protection can’t be ensured, systems are economical and powerful under these criteria.
Tall trees are clearly most vulnerable to lightning strikes and species such as tulip tree, oak, pine, and maple are damaged than others. Historic trees, those in feature locations in the landscape, and those close to structures are candidates for lightning protection. Lightning protection systems must annually to be checked to ensure they’re complete.

Fertilization and Soil Care
It has been approved by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) and is the only organic tree fertilizer proven effective for supplying nutrients in a single application. One type of natural amendment is biochar, a carbon-enriched additive that can be mixed or injected into the soil.
Our Premium Landscape Biochar is made completely from wood chips heated during a special process that results in a “charcoal” that enhances soil fertility, increases beneficial soil microbial activity and improves water retention.
Supplying Boost Natural is a slow-release fertilizer that gradually releases nutrients over time, like what happens in natural environments. It is safe and effective, an ideal way to maintain plant health and vigor. Trees and shrubs vital nutrients, Boost® Natural Fertilizer is derived entirely from organic sources and contains no phosphorous.
Trees and shrubs thrive in this soil with superior growth and reduced disease and insect susceptibility. In addition to supplying trees and shrubs needed nutrients through fertilization, soil amendments can improve the condition of the soil itself. An added benefit is that the process for creating biochar sequesters carbon, having the potential to positively impact climate change well as naturally-based insect and disease.
As part of our strategy to tree care, regular inspections allow our arborists to identify problems that remedies can be timed appropriately. Timing is crucial for remedies to be effective. Specific treatments include the use of reduced-risk materials and release of beneficial insects to curb damaging pest populations as well as tree fertilizer listed by the Organic Salt Lake STORM DAMAGE. Risks aren’t always obvious. Most harm to property in severe weather happens when limbs or trees fall. High winds and soil conditions of summer storms can lead to tree roots to fail and branches to weaken. During winter, the weight of snow and ice accumulation can be equally damaging, leading to collapse of trees and branches.
None of this is any easy encounter for a homeowner. That’s the reason why pre-storm strategies are suggested to identify hazardous conditions and to help reduce the potential risk of harm before severe weather happens. In a lot of cases, hazards aren’t always evident to the mind and correcting them can be dangerous job.
Although it’s impossible to completely shield your trees and property from storms, a certified arborist can inspect for problems which could predispose trees to collapse.
This may include a climbing examination or an investigation of corrosion which might be present in branches, stems or roots. Based upon what’s found, proper treatments will help shrubs and trees better endure weather events.
When there’s a problem with the tree’s construction, installation of cables or dentures can assist the tree’s capability to withstand high winds or heavy snow. Pruning may also assist with this and it’s vital for eliminating any dead or dangling.
Lightning protection is another choice for high value trees or even those close to constructions. Never use the services of an arborist that suggests topping as a solution to storm damage prevention. Topping leads to problems later in the life span of the tree and is prohibited by business standards.
When you regularly care of your trees, when a severe storm strikes, make certain to have an arborist review your property for any problems resulting from the weather. Once emergency solutions are complete, crews start the process of clean up and repair on storm damaged plants.
Treatment recommendations on storm damaged plants will be dependent on the kind and extent of harm, plant life, species considerations, and possible.
Materials Review Institute (OMRI) and biochar for Soil Health.
Our company was among the first to emerge and execute a plant healthcare program that utilizes alternative products and methods for control of insects and disease. Choosing the proper shrubs and trees and knowing how to nurture them with appropriate irrigation, mulching and soil care is the foundation for effective organic and naturally based tree care.
Insect and Disease Management
When insects or tree diseases are recognized, organic and reduced-risk products are available to give control. Products including traditional organic materials like horticultural oil, insecticidal soap and pyrethrum as well as novel new products derived from plants and micro-organisms are proven successful in controlling your anxieties a vast range of problems.
On mature trees, pruning is required to remove dead and dying branches to maintain plant safety and health. This pruning kind is referred to as cleaning. Research has now documented that thinning, the elimination of live branches to reduce density reduces wind resistance and storm injury.
Thinning must only be done on trees in which the crown is “too dense” along with also a Arborist has training and experience to appraise this feature. Thinning ought to be concentrated on the outer portions of the duplex, leaving as many branches on the interior crown as possible. On occasion, the crown or person branches need reduction in length to improve the shape and shape of the plant, to remove interference with objects and structures, and to compensate for weaknesses. Branches may require pruning for similar reasons.
