Many tree doctors in Andover, MN offer plant health care treatments for trees and shrubs, but what is plant health care? Plant health care could be any type of service, treatment, or action, which helps to improve or maintain the health of your plant. Examples of plant health care could be pruning a tree, controlling insect or disease pests on a tree, or even fertilizing a tree.

In general, most Andover tree doctors consider plant health care to be some type of insect or disease control treatment or a soil enhancement treatment such as fertilizing a tree, altering the soil pH, or adding beneficial components to the soil like mycorrhizae fungi or rhizobacteria.

The goal of plant health care is to improve, or maintain, the health of landscape trees and shrubs so they can continue to be an asset and add beauty to our landscapes. This is achieved by controlling insect and disease pests and by making sure the trees or shrubs have adequate nutrients available for healthy growth to occur.

Tree doctors in Andover achieve this goal by scheduling plant health care treatments based on the tree species located on your property. Plant health care treatments may need to be applied preventively or after the presence of a tree pest, depending on the pest and tree or shrub species involved. Local tree doctors know which trees need to be protected from common tree diseases and the types of insects common to Andover. The plant health care program a tree doctor recommends for your property may be different than your neighbors property. It all depends on the species of trees or shrubs on your property.

In most cases a plant health care program involves periodic visits to adequately protect the landscape trees and shrubs. Not all insect or disease pests are active at the same time of the year, so multiple plant health care treatments are used to target different tree and shrub pests.

Why do some landscape plants need insect or disease control treatments or fertilization?

Plant health care treatments are necessary because many of our landscape plants are planted in unnatural environments. This immediately puts landscape plants under stress, which not only encourages insect and disease infestation, but makes the damage caused by insect or disease pests more damaging to the plant. The benefit of a plant health care program is that most insect pest or disease damage can be minimized or even prevented.
