Are the products that you apply harmful to pets?

When is the best time to fertilize my tree or shrub?

The early Spring or all through Fall is the best time.

How can I tell if my shrub has mites?

Take a white piece of paper and shake a branch over it. If you see brown or red specs moving on the paper, you probably have mites.

How do I prevent Japanese Beetles from destroying my tree?

There are two ways. One way is to spray the tree as the beetles begin to feed. While this method is effective in killing all the beetles currently on the tree, some years the infestation may be so severe that 1 or 2 follow up applications may be required. The second way of controlling Japanese beetles is to soil inject the root zone area of the tree with a one time application in the early spring. This application lasts the entire growing season and prevents the beetles from doing any significant damage.

Why are the leaves on my tree starting to turn brown so early in the season?

The are many possible reasons why this may occur. Sometimes it is weather related (too hot, dry, wet or cold). However, sometimes the cause may be due to a variety of fungus attacks which may severely damage or destroy your tree. It is best to call a trained professional to come to your property to analyze your individual situation.
