Plant Health Care

Professional Tree Treatment in Grand Junction, CO

Unfortunately, many of the trees in the Grand Valley suffer from the extreme conditions that our high-desert environment places on them. In order to combat this, proper plant health care (also known as “tree treatment”) is necessary. The number one way to ensure effective plant health care is by approaching it preventatively instead of as a reaction. Winter watering, mulching, and strengthening treatments (fertilization, plant growth regulators, etc.) are all tools that can and should be utilized to see the best results in your trees around the Western Slope.

Our team of PHC technicians can treat and recommend courses of action for all trees both native and introduced in the area. Whether it be through bolstering their natural defenses through fertilization, growth regulators, and improved moisture retention; or ridding them of destructive pests through pesticide soil drench and/or systemic injection. Alpine Tree Service has an answer for your tree health issues any time of the year. Alpine Tree Service is a CDA licensed chemical applicator and the Plant Health Care Manager, Brandon Kanwischer, is also an ISA Certified Arborist, a TCIA Certified Tree Care Specialist, and is a City Council appointed member of the Forestry Board for the City of Grand Junction.
