Insect & Disease Inspection and Treatment Program

A technician will visit your property from April through October and inspect and treat your ornamental trees, shrubs and vegetable gardens using the safest and most advanced methods available. Trees, shrubs and vegetable gardens under our care are still subject to stresses and conditions over which we have no control. There may be additional charges for extreme situations.

Organic Deep Root Fertilization

In nature, trees and shrubs are fed through the decomposition of forest litter. The home landscape does not provide this benefit. Our deep root feeding process provides all needed nutrients and organic soil conditioners, keeping plants healthy and helping them to resist pests. Since the 1980’s we have developed targeted custom products to address your soil and plant issues. Following the science we add and balance the nutrients and biology in your soil for optimum plant health. With Harrington’s you will receive a personalized inspection program to treat your ornamental and fruit trees, shrubs and gardens using custom biological amendments.

Liquid Biological Amendments

Custom made Liquid Biological Amendments (LBA) applied directly to your trees and shrubs supply beneficial organisms and biology so disease-causing organisms cannot find infection sites or food resources. Tailor made soil drenches also provide a biological barrier around roots to prevent disease-causing organisms from being able to find the roots. These beneficial organisms provide nutrients to the foliage and roots to improve plant growth and improves nutrient and moisture retention.

 

Organic Surface Bed Fertilization

(for ground covers, perennials and vegetable gardens)
Our granular humate based fertilizer works quickly to rebuild tired, depleted and over worked soils. The humate and minerals found in our OS fall soil conditioner supply plants with all they need to stay healthy.

Horticultural Oil Spray

We selectively apply dormant oil to your plant material in early spring or late fall. This non-toxic application smothers and suffocates insects and/or their eggs.

Winter Evergreen Protection

(1-3 applications)
A non-toxic anti-desiccant overcoat that protects your broadleaf and evergreen shrubs from winter burn and or winter kill by slowing evaporation rates by as much as 80%.

 

Deer Protection

(3-5 applications) This non-toxic application discourages foraging deer by coating plants with a detecting agent that deer learn to stay away from. It is highly effective and won’t wash off with rain.

 

Tick & Mosquito Management

(3-8 applications)
Ticks and mosquitoes can be a nuisance and carry diseases that can affect us, our family and our pets. The CDC now reports 16 different tick-borne pathogens affecting humans, many of which have been discovered in the last few years. Our natural botanical and biological insecticides manage all stages of deer ticks and mosquitoes. Areas to be treated can include lawns and woodland borders and applications are made year round. Multiple applications are always recommended.

 

Tree Trunk Injection

(Tree I.V.)
Our cutting edge formulations and state of the art injection technology deliver small, precise amounts of nutrition, disease suppression and insect control treatments, directly into the vascular system of trees and shrubs, treating the plant from the inside without impacting the surrounding environment. Since everything occurs within the tree, there is virtually no risk of chemical exposure to you, your property, your children or your pets.

Trunk injection is the most effective alternative to spraying or soil applying pesticides for tree insect or pest control. Arborjet trunk injection equipment injects formulations directly inside trees. With over 20 years of research and development, our trunk injection systems and formulations are proven to give the best results when protecting trees from pests.  Nontoxic, environmentally safe products custom developed to enhance plant defenses are often used with our Arborjet system too.

Soil Surface Injection

We soil inject insecticides (to manage insects) and/or natural bio-fungicides (to manage diseases). Materials are absorbed by the root system and move through the vascular system and/or re-colonize the soil with beneficial microbes to protect the roots from pathogens.

Ornamental Pruning and Care

We are certified arborists, fully qualified to prune, cable and brace for your valuable ornamental trees and shrubs.

Pelletized Humate Compost/Natural Fertilizers
