Spring breaths new life in the world around us
The weather is just starting to warm up,
and so is our spring services!

As we kick off into Spring we are scheduling lawn aerations and plant health care services.
We are launching the "Hunt for Knowledge" this month. Autumn Tree loves sharing knowledge about plants, trees, and bugs. This month we hope to spark conversation and engage your children or grandchildren in research and conversation. In honor of Arbor day, Earth day, and Easter we will hide an egg on your property for your children or grand-children to find. This will be done on the day your services are scheduled. In the egg will be an interactive fun facts game to help children learn interesting environmental information. If you would like to be a part of our project, please register to be added to our 'Hunt for Knowledge' list.
Lawn Aerations
Aeration is one of the most important ways of improving a lawn’s water efficiency. It not only reduces soil compaction, it also lets air, nutrients and water into the soil. Aerating is easiest when the soil is moist. Leave the plugs on top of the soil; do not rake them up. As they break down they add organic matter and nutrients back into the soil. Plugs do not have to be super deep: ¾ of an inch to 1½ inches is plenty to relieve upper level compaction and allow for better moisture penetration.  

Plant Health Care
Ornamental trees and shrubs can become easy targets for disease, invasive pests, and weather damage. Routine inspections and treatments can protect your trees and shrubs while reducing unexpected expenses. To prevent damage from pests later in the season dormant oils should be applied in late March or early April before the plants show signs of bud break. Our professional teams objective is to maintain or improve your trees appearance, health, and safety by recommending treatments and changes in maintenance practices.
