Tree Services from Diagnosis to Long Term Plant Health Care

A Tree Consultant with a Holistic Approach

As a highly regarded Consulting Arborist and ISA Certified Arborist, Kim Bock, Prima Plant Services owner, first evaluates a troubled tree to determine the base causes. Much like a new doctor / patient relationship, an initial consultation can be instrumental in maintaining a property’s landscape investment. Kim makes a thorough walk-through of the site to evaluate the trees and surrounding landscape. She shares information regarding the trees’ health and structural integrity, site conditions affecting tree health, and maintenance recommendations.

Sometimes the issue is cultural, meaning it may not be getting enough water or the soil may not be appropriate for the species. At times, there are other issues such as Mountain Pine Beetle, aphids, or a tree disease that require treatment. Whether it’s aspen tree care, spruce or pine tree care, fruit tree pruning, or tree fertilization, you can count on Prima Plant Services to do the right thing to optimize your trees’ health.

Developed or Pre-Developed Land Consultations

Often developers and homeowner's associations require an evaluation of the trees and landscape of vacant land or developed property for purposes of short term and long term planning (and often to obtain governmental development approvals). Such a report is helpful determining allocation of financial resources towards the primary health issues, if any, and can be a tool for a longer-range tree and landscape management plan for the property.

Dormant season pruning can be done anytime between leaf drop in the fall and bud break in the spring time. However, pruning is not recommended on maple trees during the winter due to high sap flow. ... (more)
