Are you on the summer scouting list? If you answered ‘no’ then you should read why you should be.

Information from our scouting visits can be extremely helpful in having knowledge about your property and what it may need to survive and thrive. This is because of the fundamental principle of plant health care, that the entire landscape is a managed unit and should be viewed as an ecosystem. Monitoring your trees and shrubs keeps your ecosystem vibrant and successful, leading to a positive future with more enjoyment and fewer worries.

Our well-trained arborists or plant health care specialists will be on the frontlines, literally scouting your property and finding out how healthy it really is following a meticulous assessment. They are the experts for identifying and assessing your environment.

They’re looking at multiple factors. The plant health care specialists use over 20 identifiers to thoroughly determine best practices to produce a healthy and vibrant landscape and ensure longevity.

Scouting includes an array of items: identifying plant materials; examining said material and determining its health; identifying any abnormalities; concluding whether poor plant health is due to insects, disease or abiotic disorders; a soil analysis for nutrient and PH levels, to establish soil type and health; concluding whether plant location is having an adverse effect on its health; and whether the immediate landscape is having a detriment on plant health.

Scouting should be done annually. At Camelot Tree & Shrub Co. we advise for scouting to occur in summer or early fall due to the availability of information that can be studied and monitored. Plant health care services conducted in the autumn season also pose the best long-term benefits
