What Is Plant Health Care (PHC)?
Plant health care, also called PHC, ensures all plants have the right environment for sustainability and growth. It’s based on preventive care so beloved plants can thrive. Professional plant health care services provide extensive knowledge and experience in areas including:
- Tree and Plant Biology
- Overall Soil Health
- Fertilizing, Mulching, and Composting
- Treatment of Insects, Diseases, and Fungi
Why Is Plant Health Care Important?
Trees and plants are the main elements of a robust landscaping environment. The entire landscape can suffer when they do not thrive due to poor health. Proper PHC is preventive, ensuring plants and trees have what they need to grow and enhance the landscape. Healthy plants and trees lead to healthy environments that support a variety of other living things, like harmless insects and small animals.
Common Causes of Plant Health Problems
Like any other living thing on this Earth, trees and plants aren’t immune to health problems. The key is knowing the common problems that can affect plants so you can spot them early on and resolve them. The most common causes of plant health problems include:
- Being Eaten by Insects
- Fungi Infestation
- High Traffic on Roots
- Inadequate Drainage
- Lack of Proper Nutrition
5 Signs You Need Professional Plant Health Care
So when is it time to call in the professionals from Rent A Monkey? Here are five signs that it’s time to give the team a call to help out your plants and trees:
- Abnormal Leaf Color – Something is wrong when the leaves on your trees or plants are no longer green. A professional can assess the situation, find the problem, and provide a solution.
- Deformed Leaves – Deformed leaves are a sign of harmful insects or diseases. Best addressed by a professional, knowing when and how to correctly treat the problem is the key to a proper, long-term solution.
- Bleeding Tree Trunk – Cankers can develop underneath tree bark and will appear to bleed. These cankers are like clogged arteries in the tree, blocking water and nutrients from getting to all the necessary parts of the tree, causing a negative impact.
- Deadwood – While healthy plants and trees can have dead branches, there should not be an extensive amount. For trees specifically, if there are loose limbs at the top, it is a sign of distress on the root system.
- Black Sticky Residue – If you find a black sticky residue on patios or other plants, insects are likely feeding on the plant. In addition to the insects eating the plant, the residue they leave behind can cause significant damage to objects nearby.
