Pest & Disease Management

Plant Health Care (PHC) is a preventative approach to tree and shrub health.  Keeping the plants healthy and strong will keep them safer from pests and diseases. Your landscape is an investment and worth investing the time and money in to maintain the health and beauty of your property.   The primary goal of a PHC program is to provide a healthy growing environment for the trees and landscape plants.

At Friendly Tree Service we offer multiple services to care for your tree and shrubs such as soil nutrition, insect control, and disease management. Building healthy rich soil is the key to a healthy landscape. 
In short, you can think of PHC as a health insurance policy for your trees and shrubs.
