Did you know that according to “Growing Greener Cities”, a book published in 1992 by the American Forestry Association, trees have significant monetary benefits. They have found that a single tree provides $73 worth of air conditioning, $75 worth of erosion control, $75 worth of wildlife shelter, and $50 worth of air pollution reduction. Compounding this total of $273 for fifty years at 5% interest results in a tree value of $57,151.
let us save your tree
Carolina Tree Doctors is a network of ISA Certified Arborist and ISA Board Certified Arborist with one goal in mind, Saving your trees!
When it comes to trees showing signs of decline, you have two options: restoration or removal. Saving a tree saves you money! Most importantly, it saves on your energy bills and adds value to your property.
While under our care, if we are unable to save your tree within two seasons and it reaches a point where it needs to be removed… we will help you recover the cost of trying to save your tree by offering you a 20% discount on removal up to $500, if removal is performed by our subsidiary company Niwaki Tree and Shrub.
Have You Hugged a Tree Today?
According to the USDA Forest Service, “Trees properly placed around buildings can reduce air conditioning needs by 30% and save 20-50 percent in energy used for heating.”
Trees produce oxygen through photosynthesis. In the Amazonian rainforest, vegetative growth generates 20% of the world’s atmospheric oxygen.
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second-best time is now. – Chinese proverb
NutriBlend® Organic Soil Reform
Manufactured fertilizers are very popular with homeowners because they are readily available, inexpensive, and generally provide a quick release of nutrients for fast plant growth. The down side is that excess plant growth, encourages insects and disease, and it increases stress on the already struggling plants.
In addition, nitrogen based fertilizers add salt that can have high impact on the soil pH, kill off beneficial fungi and bacteria in the soil and restrict the uptake of essential minerals by plant roots.The presence of salt will also lower the soil pH. In highly acid soils (very low pH), aluminum and manganese can become more available and toxic to the plant.
Although a fertilized tree or shrub may appear a little greener and maybe healthier, its internal systems and relationship with the soil may be at a high risk of collapse. Applying synthetic, manufactured fertilizers is comparable to us taking steroids to speed muscle growth.
Organic Soil Reform involves the reconstruction of microbial life within the soil, replicating natural conditions by adding organic matter, micronutrients, and living microbes to the soil. Our custom formulated NutriBlend® contains a mix of worm extracts, Black sea kelp, hummates, amino acids, and essential foods and sugars. In addition, this custom blended mixture is formulated for our North and South Carolina “red clay “ to help naturally aerate and de-compact the soil the natural way using microbiology much like that found in our thriving forest. I don’t know about you, but I have never seen anyone fertilize our forest… because “Mother Nature” does it all naturally.
Everything Starts with Good Soil!
A healthy landscape, speaking about your trees and shrubs, require rich soil, filled with living microorganisms. Our urban “dirt” is sterile, void of most nutrients and offer little space for oxygen and moisture due to it’s high compaction. This soil lacks organic matter and the living micro and macro organisms that we find in nature.
The key to managing plants so they are resistant to stress, disease and insect attack is Plant Health Care (PHC) which first emphasizes plant health to fight disease an insects naturally and second, to proactively manage plants by proper selection, installation and pruning.
Deep Root Tree Fertilizer and Soil Care
Niwaki Tree and Shrub employs a liquid injection process to administer our nutrient programs. The action of injecting NutriBlend® our organic fertilizer into the ground under pressure yields several advantages. Deep root treatments replenish the depleted soil with needed nutrient components; it also separates and aerates compacted soil, allowing water and oxygen to reach the root hairs where absorption takes place.
Do you have trees or shrubs that are growing slowly or that may be showing signs of stress or disease.
Many negative factors could be the reason:
• Poor soil conditions
• Roots bound and restricted
• Compacted soil
• Drought stress
• Low microbial activity
• Landscape Maintenance damage
