Our Complete Tree & Shrub Maintenance Program
Arbor Care by Kaiser Tree is our complete, season long tree and shrub maintenance program. Rather than target treating individual issues as they come up, the ultimate goal of an Arbor Care program is to prevent tree and shrub issues altogether.
How do we do this?
Instead of spraying ornamentals with blanket applications of pesticide several times per year (Common practice), most of our time on properties is spent monitoring for issues, and then spot treating as necessary. With this approach, we use 95% less pesticide, and get better results than the common practice.
Our program consists of:
- A free consultation with one of our licensed arborists to catalogue the trees and shrubs on the property, and list the issues which your ornamentals may face
- 4-6 site visits throughout the growing season to monitor and treat plants appropriately
- Fertilization with organic products
- Dormant oil applications which are chemical-free
What does Arbor Care cost?
Because each program is individually tailored to fit the needs of a particular landscape, pricing cannot be given without a free site visit and assessment. You may want to develop a plan for a few key trees in your landscape or you may want your entire landscape placed on a program. You will find that we can design the Arbor Care program to fit your goals and budgets.
What about chemicals and toxicity?
We are an environmentally conscious company. We strive to achieve the goal of excellent plant health care while using minimal amounts of pesticides. Whenever possible, we use organic fertilizers, non-toxic dormant oils, and non-toxic pesticides. To protect bees, we will not spray shrubs when they are in bloom. Fish & koi ponds are always covered when necessary, to protect the health of your aquatic animals.
We will schedule your trees and shrubs for these maintenance measures annually, and your trees will never go without!
