It’s the time of year again in Rochester, MN, when residents are receiving renewal contracts from commercial lawn companies. During this time, it’s important to remember that some commercial advertisements for tree and shrub care aren’t entirely accurate. In fact, many commercial advertisements center around building and maintaining a client base rather than simply preserving the health and well-being of your trees and shrubs. If you’re invested in maintaining healthy trees and shrubs, any and all services that address tree and shrub health should be reviewed carefully, and ideally, double-checked by one of the certified arborists at Maier Tree and Lawn.

If you’re trying to determine which types of renewal services are most effective, look for some indicators about the services they offer. For instance, if an ad is recommending fertilization for trees and shrubs more than once per year, there’s a chance that the products being used could be harmful to the plants in question. Fertilizing, like many aspects of tree and shrub care, is best performed by an arborist. Fertilizing should always be conducted on a carefully selected schedule and with consideration of important factors such as the type of plant, time of year, and type of fertilizer. Certified arborists not only know what plants and trees need, but they also know how to treat them without being excessive.

If you’re interested in improving your shrub and tree care methods, but want to guarantee that you’re in the hands of an expert, rely on certified arborists to help achieve your tree and shrub care goals.
