Tree & Shrub Services

The goal of our Green Care Tree and Shrub Program is to provide necessary nutrients for optimal growth and flowering while protecting the landscape from disease and insects.

What You Need to Know About Our Six-Step Green Care Tree and Shrub Program

Just like our Lawn Care Program, our Tree and Shrub Care service spans throughout the year in six main stages. Our technicians will inspect your property every time and implement the service depending on your lawn’s and landscape’s needs. Here is how our Tree and Shrub Care Program unfolds:

I. Winter: Dormant Oil Application

  • The goal is to kill overwintering insects with this environmentally friendly application.

II. Spring Tree and Shrub Fertilizer

  • We apply a deep root fertilizer injection for ornamental landscape trees.
  • We apply N-P-K balanced nutrient fertilizers for shrubs and perennials.
  • Next, comes a holly-tone treatment for acid-loving trees and shrubs.
  • Finally, we apply lime for alkaline loving trees and shrubs.

III. Spring Systemic Insect Control

  • Spring is the best time for soils drench applications to protect trees, shrubs, and perennials. The treatment provides internal protection for landscaping that lasts the entire season.

IV. Summer Insect and Disease Control

  • At this time, our specialists’ goal is to identify and spot-treat insect & disease infestations.

V. Summer Insect and Disease Control

  • We continue with the identification and spot treatments of insect & disease infestations.

VI. Fall Dormant Oil Application

  • At this time, the Tree and Shrub Care Program aims to eliminate overwintering insects with our environmentally friendly application.

"On The Green is the BEST! I have used other companies, but there is no comparison. I was just admiring my lawn this morning - saying that it is beautiful and looks like a green carpet. In addition to my lawn care, they also service my in-ground sprinkler system. Customer service is top-notch."

"We recently hired On the Green to take care of our yard. Our grass is starting to look better. Today they showed up to clean up the leaves and other things that blow into our yard from the park across the road. These two guys did a fantastic job. We have a low sitting deck and they managed to get the leaves out from under it. On the Green has a 5 star rating with us."
