Why is it a Prescription Letter?
Written by: Ron Gumz, Board-Certified Master Arborist MN-0324B
Wachtel Tree Science has always been known to approach tree care in a scientific way, that’s why science is in our name! Now is the time of year when you will be receiving plant health care recommendations for the coming year. The recommendations are designed to specifically for your trees to help keep them healthy and beautiful.
What should you expect to see in this letter? Previously, you had discussed with one of our talented, highly trained professional Certified Arborists what was concerning you about your trees. This resulted in recommendations to improve the health of the tree.
During the winter months, your arborist reviews each client’s account. In this process, he or she takes the time to see what has been done in the past and determines if the treatment is still warranted for your trees. Adjustments and refinements are made when appropriate or if a new or more refined treatment is more necessary.
While doing these reviews, often it is a reminder that a property visit or tour may be necessary to assess the current condition of your trees. You might wonder what does the arborist do when they are at my property inspecting my trees? There are many factors our arborists consider when taking a look at each individual tree or shrub. Some circumstances present may be abiotic (non-living organism) or biotic (living organism) issues, which would result in a plant health care recommendation. Pruning or removal specifications may also be recommended for your trees and shrubs.
The reason we do what we do is because of our love for not just trees but nature as a whole. So be on the lookout in your mailbox or email inbox for what your arborist is recommending for your property’s needs to sustain the beauty you desire. Please do not hesitate to call or email us to visit your property at any time of the year. Thank you for putting your trust in Wachtel Tree Science!
