What Is Tree Health?
Tree health is the overall well-being and vigor of a tree, determined by its ability to grow, reproduce, and resist environmental stresses, pests, and diseases. An arborist assesses tree health by examining various factors, including the integrity of the tree’s structure, the condition of its bark, leaves, and roots, as well as signs of infections or infestations. Proper tree health is crucial as it impacts not only the tree’s lifespan and aesthetic appeal but also its safety and contribution to the ecosystem. Arborists play a key role in maintaining tree health through practices like pruning, soil management, disease treatment, and advising on proper watering and fertilization. They work to ensure trees are structurally sound, thriving, and able to perform their vital roles in urban and natural landscapes. Trees get diseases just like humans and are affected by their environment. Trees can become sick and require professional treatment to recover back to full health.

What Services Does The Atlanta Arbor Tree Health Division Provide?
Atlanta Arbor’s Plant Health Care Division provides an array of services all of which are tailored to your tree’s specific needs. These services can include:
Tree Fertilization: We label this “fertilization” but fertilizer is only the smallest benefit of our product. Standard fertilizers are composed of 3 main nutrients; nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus (NPK). This is a good treatment for the lack of macronutrients in the soil. The problem is that fertilizer is just a treatment and treatments need to be administered consistently. We are striving to provide a solution to the lack of micronutrients in your soil. Our “fertilizer” blend is composed of not only standard NPK fertilizers but also contains humic and amino acids, root vitamins, beneficial bacteria, sea kelp extract, and mycorrhizae. This combination works symbiotically to help change the composition of your soil. Changing the composition of your soil provides the best habitat for your tree roots.
Growth Regulators: This is a phenomenal product that can help trees in many different ways. A Growth Regulator reduces the amount of annual apical growth by up to 70%. A reduction in apical growth helps the tree preserve energy to fight drought stress, insect infestations, and decay. Although the tree slows apical growth, the fibrous root system production doubles aiding in more water and nutrient uptake. Growth Regulators are installed in 3-year cycles, this equals great savings for you.
Integrated Pest Management: Integrated pest management is the combination of appropriate pest control tactics into a single plan to reduce pests and their damage to an acceptable threshold level. We employ Natural, Cultural, Mechanical, and Chemical Control methods to solve your pest problems. Pest management programs are tailored specifically to your trees’ and shrubs’ needs. We offer packages with 4,6, and 8 annual site visits.
Tree Density and Decay Measuring: How do you know if your is hollow or contains heartwood decay? We have the perfect tool to determine this. Our Resistograph measures tree density at various depths. This helps our arborists determine the level of risk your tree poses to you or your property. Trees can sustain from 30-60% decay before they are deemed structurally unstable. This percentage is dependent on tree species, location of decay, and other environmental circumstances.
