The practice of plant health care (PHC) involves looking at trees and shrubs as a whole by focusing on developing a healthy landscape. By caring for plants and trees each season, you’ll be able to reap the benefits of a beautiful-looking landscape. The goal of plant health care is to proactively keep your trees and shrubs healthy, so they don’t become victim to some serious problems, such as disease infection and insect infestation.
It’s worth investing in plant health care to increase the longevity of your beautifully-kept landscape. Trees and shrubs can make a big difference when it comes to the aesthetics of your home, and they can also increase the value of your property.
When looking to start a plant health care program, consult with certified arborists. Plants are like any other living thing. They can become injured when not treated with proper care.
