Benefits of Getting Tree Health Care in Kalamazoo

Many people don’t realize this, but without regular health care, the trees in your yard can begin to lose branches, develop diseases, and even die completely. Not only will this result in an eyesore for your yard, but the rotting tree can grow mold, creating a health hazard on your property, and even attract termites and other insects that could pose a threat to your house. American Arbor has a team of professional arborists that can provide you with great tree health care in the greater Kalamazoo area. We can assess any trees on your property, identify potential risks, formulate a care plan, and even remove diseased or dead trees from your property safely and effectively, if need be. In today’s post, we will discuss the benefits of having American Arbor provide health care for the trees on your property.

Eliminate Potential Risks

You may take a diseased or dead tree for granted, but depending on where this tree is located, it could pose a serious risk to your property. Once a tree starts to weaken, it becomes even more vulnerable to the stresses caused by high winds or heavy accumulated snow. This puts your house, your garage, your cars, and even your family at risk. Our arborists will thoroughly assess the trees on your property and determine the best plan of action to take. It could be as simple as trimming a few dead limbs to completely removing the tree, altogether. Regardless of the work that needs to be done, we will complete it with a focus on safety to ensure that your property is left safe without any damage.

Healthier Soil = Healthier Trees

Healthy soil is crucial for the health of trees and shrubs on your property. First, your tree’s soil needs to have the right amount of nutrients, as too many or not enough can stunt the tree’s growth and make it susceptible to insects and/or diseases. Other factors, like the pH level, the balance of macronutrients and micronutrients, and the salt concentration in the soil can have an adverse effect on the tree’s overall health. Our arborists can analyze soil samples from your property and determine how to best fertilize the soil to create a better balance and improve the tree’s health.

Protection from Invasive Pests and Fungal Diseases

There are instances in which spraying your trees may become necessary when the tree lacks a natural defense against pests or diseases. Our arborists are certified and licensed in the proper use of fungicides, miticides, and/or pesticides when appropriate measures need to be taken to protect your tree.
