Think of tree and shrub care as an investment. Healthy trees and shrubs increase in value with age: paying big dividends, increasing property values, beautifying our surroundings, purifying our air, and saving energy by providing cooling shade from summer’s heat and protection from winter’s wind. Providing a preventive care program for your shrubs and trees is like putting money in the bank. Regular maintenance, designed to promote plant health and vigor, ensures their value will continue to grow. Preventing tree and shrub problems is much less costly and time-consuming than curing them once they have developed. An effective maintenance program, including regular inspections and the necessary follow-up care of mulching, and fertilizing can detect problems and correct them before they become damaging or fatal. Considering that many tree species can live as long as 200 to 300 years, including these practices when caring for your home landscape is an investment that will offer enjoyment and value for generations.
