Plant Analysis and Diagnostics
A plant health issue on a property typically results in trees or shrubs looking unsightly. Worse, if the issue is not identified and treated correctly, health of the plant will continue to decline until loss is inevitable. When an issue exists, improper treatment can be just as bad for your trees and shrubs as no treatment at all. You will have wasted money and your plant will be no better off. This is why accurate diagnosis of problems is critical to determining proper treatment.
With continual training on the latest problems and treatment techniques, Bartlett tree surgeons can provide that analysis with expert level knowledge of your trees and shrubs. Plus, unique to Bartlett, is the Plant Diagnostic Clinic at the Bartlett Tree Research Laboratory. This facility analyses over 2,000 plant and soil samples from client properties each year to help ensure accurate diagnosis and optimal treatment recommendations.
Our arborists can fully assess plant health and tree vitality and identify insect and disease issues. With the support of our Research Laboratory, plant tissue can be analysed for diseases or disorders. Soil can also be evaluated to determine availability of nutrients, pH level, and organic matter present, as well as assessing density and drainage. When a problem exists, the goal is to identify the underlying cause before making treatment recommendations.
