Why Plant Health Care Rather Than Tree Care?

Most yard landscapes are a mix of trees, shrubs, and turf with these plants compete for water and nutrients with their intermingle roots systems. Grass fertilizers and herbicides may impact the appearance of trees. Conversely, tree pruning and treatments may affect the vitality of the underlying grass. So it is best to hire a company, like Ross Tree that does both tree and plant health care.

Why Hire a Tree Service Company for PHC?

Remember, the size and longevity of trees warrant special attention. You can replace garden plants in a week and a grass lawn in a season, but it takes years to replace a tree. So it is best to contact a professional tree company, like Ross Tree, because of their tree expertise.

Seasonal Preventative Measures


Springtime is the time that trees, shrubs, and lawns start to grow. As the weather warms up, yard insect pests and diseases become active, too. New plant growth is particularly vulnerable, so this is when a PHC program kicks into gear with the following activities:

  1. Dormant Oil Application
  2. Desiccation Prevention for Trees & Shrubs
  3. Deep Root Injections
  4. Lawn Care


Insects that damage trees, shrubs, and lawns thrive during the summer. Property owners, please check out the tree insect calendar to identify the bugs in your trees. The following PHC activities keep woody plants and lawns green during the hottest months of the year:

  1. Tree Injections
