Tree Care

Landscape trees and shrubs enhance our lives and our landscapes. Their health is important not only to the look of your landscape but to our environment. Natures Guardian is headed by Michael T. Sperber, a NYS Certified Arborist with a degree in Ornamental Horticulture. He is a specialist in diagnostics of diseases and treatments of tree and plant problems.

Our expert services for your trees and shrubs include:

  • Hedge, Shrub and Tree Pruning
    Pruning your mature trees is recommended every three to five years unless there are dead or hanging branches that have the potential to cause damage.  Annual or biennial pruning is recommended for hedges and shrubs in order to maintain the proper shape, size and appearance. Our professional arborist and experienced staff is trained to work safely and efficiently.
  • Tree Planting
    It is important to have an expert choose the correct tree to plant according to location, the availability of sun and shade, and soil composition and drainage.  A properly planted tree will grow faster and live longer. Nature’s Guardian will make the recommendations as to the best tree for your location.
  • Tree Spraying and Fertilization
    Quite often trees can benefit from fertilization to receive nutrients applied by injection within the tree’s root zone or spraying for pest control. Nature’s Guardian offers traditional and organic treatments to promote and protect your tree’s health.
  • Pest and Disease  Diagnostic and Control
    There are certain insects and diseases that can cause injury and compromise the health of your landscape plants and trees. Our arborist is trained to identify insects and diseases and recommend treatment programs to help.
