Tree & Shrub Care

At Tender Lawn Care we offer a valuable tree and shrub program! Due to our climate, and many other factors, most of our landscape plants are susceptible to many types of insect and disease problems. Our program will minimize damage caused by insects and disease, as well as enhance color and root development. You have a lot of money invested in your trees and shrubs. Why not give them the same great TLC attention that your lawn gets?

What is the tree and shrub program?

Just like your lawn program, it consists of eight regularly scheduled visits per year, with free service calls in between your regular visits. Along with root-zone fertilizations and a dormant oil application, we will also apply insect and disease treatments.

Round 1: Horticultural oil insect treatment to control eggs, immature and adult insects.
Round 2: Root-zone fertilization to promote color, growth, and flowering.
Round 3: Seasonally timed insect and disease control treatment.
Round 4: Seasonally timed insect and disease control treatment.
Round 5: Seasonally timed insect and disease control treatment.
Round 6: Seasonally timed insect and disease control treatment.
Round 7: Seasonally timed insect and disease control treatment.
Round 8: Root-zone fertilization to promote root growth and prepare plants for winter and spring growth.

What is included in the tree and shrub program?

Ornamental trees and shrubs up to 20 feet tall (which include most trees and shrubs that you or your builder have planted). However, although we will treat your rose bushes and nearly wild bushes at each visit, these plants are very susceptible to Black Spot disease - additional fungucide applications, by the homeowner, may be necessary to minimize disease activity. We are not responsible for, nor do we treat, soil born diseases or boring insects.

How long does the tree and shrub program last?

Just like your lawn program, the tree and shrub program is a continual program. For the health of your plants, we will return each year, with the same service, unless we hear differently than you.
