Tree Health in
Central Iowa

Healthy trees offer many benefits and must be well-cared for in order to provide them. From regular maintenance like pruning and fertilization, to managing threats such as disease and pests, trees need our support. Our arborists are passionate about trees and believe that proper tree care pays off.

Trees in urban environments face extra stressors when it comes to their health with top concerns generally falling into these categories:

Fertilization and Soil Health
Growth Control

Tree Care Can Reduce the Risk of Disease

Healthy trees are better equipped to withstand stress from things like drought, insects, and disease better than trees that are already struggling, taking steps to optimize good health and preventative care gives us the best chance at fighting an illness or minimizing the negative effects that residential trees face. Risk factors can worsen the impact of illness or disease for trees and then have an additional stressor added, and are more able to respond to treatment. Risk factors can worsen the impact of illness or disease for trees.
