Tree & Shrub Services
The staff at McEnery Lawn Care is well versed in the management of trees and shrubs. We would be delighted to survey your property and provide you with a free estimate for our tree and shrub services. Then we can develop a plant health care program that’s tailored toward your landscape’s specific demands in regard to insect, disease and soil fertility issues.
Customized Tree & Shrub Programs
Your tree & shrub program would consist of a combination of the following services depending upon the specifics of your landscape:
Dormant Oil Application
This is an oil spray which is applied to kill overwintering insects or eggs located on the bark of deciduous trees and shrubs while they are dormant.
Fungicide & Insecticide Applications
These are combination sprays designed to both prevent and control a wide array of diseases and insects. Targeted pests would include but are not limited to blights, scab, and rusts as well as beetles, borers and mites.
Deep Root Fertilization
This is a process where we inject a liquid form of slow release fertilizer and micronutrients into the soil surrounding the base of your trees and shrubs. We recommend that this service be performed in the Fall to help your trees and shrubs get through the winter and have more vigorous growth and a healthier appearance the following Spring.
These are products that coat plant leaves with a thin plastic like film which is designed to slow water loss during the winter months. We highly recommend that this treatment be made on newly planted evergreens or established plantings which are exposed to harsh winds and road salt during the winter months. We commonly spray them on arborvitaes, boxwood, rhododendrons and yews.
We at McEnery Lawn Care are certified Mauget micro infusion specialists. The Mauget system is ideal for limiting the environmental impact of insecticide and fungicide applications. We most often employ it on larger trees in addition to those which are located directly next to customers' homes or adjacent to bodies of water.
