ORGANIC PLANT HEALTH CARE

Arborpolitan believes in providing holistic solutions to preserving the health of urban and suburban greenspaces. It is our belief that through sustainable and natural methods, landscapes can thrive with little to no chemical products. From the initial planning of the landscape, to management and alterations, it is Arborpolitan’s goal to provide services that promote nature taking care of nature.

Green Garden Care

Customized to each client’s need, Arborpolitan uses timed applications and cultural methods to treat gardens traditionally and organically during seasonal outbreaks of insects, pests, or environmental factors that effect plant biology. Whether annually, monthly, or weekly, our visits to your garden or estate can help to preserve its long term health and beauty.

Custom Soil Care

Using an assortment of natural fertilizers and bio-stimulants, including sea kelp extract, fish oil, yucca, and worm castings, we can bring the nutrients found in the forest floor to your city garden or suburban tree. By using a deep root spike powered by a high-pressure water pump, we can deliver nutrients directly to the roots of trees and shrubs, which is much more efficient than topical fertilization.

Managing your soil health is about more than just promoting plant growth. By taking initiative with your soil, you will also stimulate slow, healthy growth in roots and shoots, encourage beneficial baceria and fungi to colonize soil, attracting earthworms and arthropods, aid soil friability and aeration, and allow the tree to improve its tolerance to disease, insects, droughts, and pollution by improving its “immune” system.

Air Spade

Wielding a spike with air traveling at a Mach 2 velocity, our technicians can use an Air Spade to excavate soil around a plant without doing damage to its root system. This is an invaluable tool when digging large holes or trenches around an existing tree, and has many other uses. The video below shows this tool in action.

Synthetic Alternatives and Specialty Tree Care: In addition to organic bio-stimulants and insect control, we can service trees using synthetic products for important issues. We administer Dutch Elm Disease Inoculations to prevent decline and death of elm species, Tree Growth Regulation and Rehabilitation products for trees in tight courtyards or trees in decline that need to focus on replenishing their energy stores, Specialty mirco-injections in hard to spray areas, and prevention and treatment of Phytophthora disease which causes masses of bleeding cankers through bark.

GENERAL TREE WORK

Pruning

Proper pruning is essential for trees young and old. Structural pruning of young and ornamental trees allows for better long term health, and removal of decay and dead wood from mature trees allows older trees to heal and close wounds. Whether for health of the tree, safety of pedestrians, or just for aesthetic purposes or to expose a vista, Arborpolitan can provide a pruning regimen to match your landscapes needs. We also perform cabling where necessary.

REMOVAL

As a last resort, or in case of emergency, Arborpolitan can assist in dismantling and removing large and small trees in open fields and from behind townhouses. All trees are analyzed prior to removal to gain the safest action of removal.

Stump Grinding

Arborpolitan can provide stump grinding of large stumps in open sites and grinding of smaller stumps and roots in rear gardens and closed off areas.

From single trees to complex gardenscapes, from design to completion

PLANTING

While we are at home in planting trees and shrubs in a variety of locations, we also have a wide array of projects large and small that have incorporated perennials, annuals, sod, and stonework. We can work with your aesthetic and space to completely design a gardenscape, or implement yours. We are working on collecting images and descriptions of past projects, which we will include on this website moving forward.

In addition to common planting methods, we are happy to incorporate the organic soil amendments that we are known for, improving the longevity of your garden. When combined with our expert knowledge of trees and pruning services, Arborpolitan is a proven all-inclusive garden care service.
