Fall is here and it’s time for your tree’s annual Health Check!

Our Fall Health Checks ensure that your trees are ready to take on whatever winter throws at them, and equips them to wake up in the spring fresh, healthy and vibrant!

Fall Health Checks involve proactive diagnoses of structural issues within the tree that may become hazardous in the winter. We also prescribe remedies for stressors put upon the tree during the summer months. This will ensure that your trees return healthy, safe and beautiful in the spring.

Here is what we look for during a Fall Health Check: 

Is Your Tree Safe For Winter?

  • Does your tree have cracks or damaged limbs in the canopy? Are branches growing too close to rooftops, wires and eaves troughs?

Cohen & Master will Protect your tree from winter storms:

  • Shorten branches extending towards your house and raise canopies over the roof
  • Prune out cracked, damaged, dead or diseased limbs
  • Install support cables for limbs with weak unions.

Is Your Tree weak, unhealthy and not looking its best?

  • Thin canopy, limited growth, leaves dropping earlier than expected?

Cohen & Master will Repair your damaged soils to greatly improve the health of your tree:

  • ArborGain & Biochar for soil repair, water retention and nutrient availability
  • Soil decompaction and Aeration Tubes for better drainage and oxygen access at depth
  • Salt Buffer to keep winter de-icing salts away from your tree’s root zone

Did your tree have a pest problem this summer?

  • Do you have damage from aphids, caterpillars, scale or other pests?

Cohen & Master will eliminate your pest problem:

  • ArborGain to support healthy root growth and improve your tree’s pest and disease resistance.
  • Dormant oil to prevent future infestation
