Healthy plants begin with healthy soils. Fertilization is just the start. Adjusting soil pH and ensuring adequate organic matter is present are also key to healthy soils. For plants in urban and surburban soils, Midland Tree Service can simulate the potimal conditions for growth found in nature. In fact, our Root Invigoration process combines all the above into a single treatment to achieve this goal.

Midland Tree Service offers the most intensive soil management programs in the landscape industry. Before fertilization is performed, soil samples are taken from the property and analyzed.

Compacted soils, common in the Permian Basin, make it difficult for trees to get the water, nutrients and air they need to thrive. A root feeder is a tool used to get nutrients deep into the ground. If the tree is located in turf, dethatching the lawn can help too.

Root feeding injects fertilizers, insecticides and other soil enhancers directly into the tree’s root zone, which is where most nutrients are absorbed.  One of the most important advantages of root feeding is that it breaks up compacted soils, allowing air, water and nutrients to get to the tree’s roots, encouraging roots to go deeper into the ground. In turf areas or in contained spaces, using a root feeder can encourage downward growth, directing roots growth away from driveways or sidewalks.

Tree Trimming

Pruning is the most common tree maintenance procedure. Although forest trees grow quite well with only nature's pruning, landscape trees require a higher level of care to maintain their safety and aesthetics. Pruning should be done with an understanding of how the tree responds to each cut. Improper pruning can cause damage that will last for the life of the tree, or worse, shorten the tree's life..

Tree Trimming

The control of insects/diseases often involves tree spraying, trunk injections or soil injections.Many tree care companies that offer tree pruning or tree removal also offer tree spraying. The equipment used for tree spraying can be as small as a backpack sprayer all the way up to a 1000 gallon tank trunk. The equipment an arborist uses for tree spraying depends on the tree species, tree size, and the insect pest or tree disease pest the arborist is controlling.

Some tree species are highly targeted by insect pests or various tree diseases, while other landscape trees are relatively pest free. A local arborist, or local tree service, can be a valuable resource in determining what landscape trees will be prone to attack by insect pests or tree diseases.
