TREE BIOLOGY - Knowing how a tree or plant functions and grows is an important part of diagnosis and treatment.

DIAGNOSIS - Proper diagnosis of plant problems is a key factor in plant health management. A bug or insect is usually not the main issue with sick trees. We need to know exactly what we are dealing with and make sure we invest our time wisely. Most distressed trees have several factors that could be affecting its health. Diagnosing and knowing why a tree or plant has symptoms is a very important step to solving tree problems. In Southern California for example, we are in a drought which is affecting many mature trees.

PRESERVATION - Plant and tree health is more than some fertilizer and tree spraying. Preserving specimen trees, takes time and experience. Organic fertilizer will benefit landscapes, preserve trees, waterways and budget.
