Tree & Shrub Care

Tree & Shrub Care

Your trees and shrubs are arguably the most important parts of your landscape. They provide beauty, shade, and can even boost the value of your property. At Papa Turf we offer a seven step tree and shrub care program that will help keep your trees and shrubs healthy, pest and disease free. The program consists of the following applications:

Application One:
A slow-release fertilizer is applied to ornamental trees and shrubs for a fuller and healthier growth.

Application Two:
A fungicide and insecticide is applied to prevent insect damage from pests such as lace bugs and fungi such as shot hole.

Application Three:
A fungicide and insecticide is applied to prevent insect damage from pests such as lace bugs and fungi such as shot hole. Miticides may be applied to prevent damage from spider mites.

 

Application Four: 
A fungicide and insecticide is applied to prevent insect damage from pests such as lace bugs and fungi such as shot hole. Fungicides should be applied every four to six weeks.

Application Five:
A fungicide and insecticide is applied which will help to prevent any damage caused by drought stress.

Application Six:
A slow-release fertilizer is applied to help keep your roots strong and healthy throughout the cold season.

Application Seven:
Horticultural oil is applied to help prevent winter damage and keep your ornamental trees and shrubs healthy throughout the winter.

Deep Root Feeding

At Papa Turf we also provide deep root feeding which is an extremely effective way to feed your trees and shrubs. We inject fertilizer into the root systems of your trees and shrubs so it is taken up a lot quicker and more efficiently than normal fertilizers.

Dormant Oil

When the weather starts to cool insects start to look for places to overwinter. Usually that place is on your trees where they wait until spring and lay their eggs. The larvae will hatch and feed on the foliage of your trees. Dormant oil is applied to your trees during the fall to kill any overwintering insects residing there and prevent any eggs from hatching.
