2019 Fall Newsletter

It is the season when leaves turn beautiful shades of orange, red, and yellow, and we welcome the cooler temperatures. For a lot of us, we celebrate the changing seasons by decorating our homes. It is also a great time to ‘decorate’ or add to our landscapes, plan for the next growing season, and do some maintenance work on our trees. In this Fall Newsletter, we will be talking about fall planting, planning for next year’s Plant Health Care plan, and sharing a video about pruning with you.

Fall Planting

fall planting 

Fall is a great time to plant trees in your landscape. It is less stressful on the tree to plant in the dormant season. Here’s how it works when you choose Cherokee Tree Care for your planting needs:

We first send you a ‘Recommended Tree List’ of trees that we’ve found through research and experience, do well in our area.

We will walk your property and discuss your hopes and needs for your property. Some people need a privacy screen, while others are looking for a shade tree or to add color with an ornamental tree. Whatever your needs, we can guide you toward finding the perfect tree for your space.

We will write up a proposal for you with an optional one-year warranty available to you. We then take care of all the logistics of selecting your trees at a local nursery, locating underground utilities, and having your trees planted by a certified arborist at the proper depth and following proper planting standards.

After your tree is planted, we will leave you with a care card of instructions on how to best water and care for your new addition. We recommend setting up a fertilization program for your trees for the first 4-5 years after planting to help the tree become established and reduce planting stress.

Now is the time to start talking with your arborist about planting options for this fall. Give us a call to schedule an appointment with us.

How Can We Better Serve You Next Year?

A note from our Plant Health Care Manager, Amanda Wilson:

Amanda

I wanted to touch base with all my Plant Health Care customers to say thank you for such a great season. While we still have a few fall applications left, our pest and disease activity this year is coming to an end.

I wanted to reach out and offer a chance to set up an appointment with me to walk your property, go over your current plan, and discuss any concerns or revisions you may have. I want to serve our customers in a way that best suits you while being environmentally conscious and having your trees’ needs at the top of my list. If you are not a current Plant Health Care customer, let’s discuss how our services can benefit your property. There isn’t one blanket treatment that works for all properties and my goal isn’t to spray everything in sight. I’d love to look at your trees and write up a plan that is specific to your property’s needs.

Please email me at amanda@cherokeetreecare.com or call the office at 417-838-0390 to set up an appointment. I look forward to another great year with you and want to thank you sincerely for entrusting me to watch over your trees.
