Shrub and Tree Pruning

Our arborists are balancing plant health, safety and artistry when pruning and shaping your plants from specimen shrubs or prized lace leaf maples to the largest shade and evergreen trees. We prune to emphasize a tree's natural shape. If the tree has structural problems, we can cable it to increase its safety. In natural disaster situations we provide priority, emergency tree damage response to our clients. We also expertly prune fruit trees to shape and optimize fruit production. All of our work is performed in accordance with Industry Standard (ANSI A-300) tree pruning guidelines.

Soil Health

Proper nutrition is of primary importance in plant health care. Our Soil Health Programs improve poor soils by promoting healthy soil biology and by providing plant nutrition that is 100% organic. At Collier Arbor Care, our programs feature the use of compost tea, organic fertilizers and Mycorrhizae (a beneficial root fungus) to sustainably enhance landscape soils. Our Soil Health Care and Targeted Soil Health Care programs create trees and shrubs that are healthier, more resistant to plant problems, and they look and grow better.

If you can do just one thing to promote the health and beauty of your landscape plants, the Soil Health Program is it! Contact us today to schedule an assessment of your landscape and find out how our all natural program will protect your plants, promote soil sustainability, and make your landscape thrive.

dandelion weed

Landscape Weed Control

We can apply specialized treatments designed to control existing weeds and deter new weeds from encroaching into your landscape. We treat for weeds four times a year: three pre-emergent treatments before they appear and one post-emergent treatment to clean up the few weeds that elude the preventative applications.

Targeted Insect and
Disease Treatments

The cure of your plant problems starts with a site visit and an accurate diagnosis by our expert Arborists. Then we custom design an insect and disease treatment program to fit the health needs of your trees (including fruit trees) and shrubs. This scientific approach eliminates unnecessary treatments by targeting only the pest-susceptible plants. By targeting only pest susceptible plants for treatment, we protect the health of your plants and the environment.
