Newly transplanted trees face a variety of issues as they begin to root in new soil, and the homeowner is left to contend with nature’s own pace in terms of yielding big successful trees in the landscape. When the desire is to get healthy roots established and rapid growth occurring as quickly as possible, a tree service can provide growth enhancement services. By applying fertilizer treatments on a timeline over a period of several seasons, we have been able to generate rapid and successful healthy growth in tree plantings for many homeowners in the Tetons and can offer this to you as well.
While the rapid establishment of screening cover is desirable in many instances, there are times when a trees’ growth can become a problem, and we can also apply treatments to slow the growth of trees in a specific manner. For instance, when a tree’s growth is such that it requires constant and continual pruning for view obstruction, and the owner does not simply wish to cut it down for the other values it offers, that tree might be a candidate for growth inhibitor treatment. A growth inhibitor can slow the apical growth (of the treetops that get in the way of a certain view, for example), while simultaneously stimulate root development and thereby enhancing the overall health of the tree.
Whether to grow in as much screening cover as rapidly as possible or to preserve a tree and slow its growth and enhance its health, we can work with Mother Nature to achieve good results with a variety of growth affecting applications.
