We like to think of ourselves as educators, too.  So if you have any questions related to your tree or shrubs health and care, please call us.  We are here to help. 



When New England Arborists, LLC prunes trees and bushes, we practice what is called Plant Health Care.  Plant health care is a proactive approach to tree care by the proper pruning of trees and shrubs.  This practice provides suitable air flow that can dry out any possible fungal issues.  It also removes dead, dying or diseased limbs that can lead to disease spread. Sunlight encourages new growth. Maintaining healthy plants can be the best defense against insects and disease.

The majority of a tree's or shrub's roots are actually found within the 6-12" depth range of the soil.  Often, grass or a small garden bed is found around the base of a tree.  While this is aesthetically pleasing, the grass and plants on top end up with most of the nutrients from rain and decomposing natural materials.  To off-set this, we deep-root fertilize.  A probe is inserted into the ground around the drip-line of a tree or shrub and fertilizer is injected into the ground at 300-500 psi.  The high-pressure from the injector also serves to aerate the soil allowing much needed oxygen to enter.

Regular inspection of trees and shrubs is necessary to keep insect and disease damage minimal and manageable.  An arborist has an understanding of tree and insect biology which aids to predict any defects a tree or shrub may suffer as well as knowing the best time of year to treat any fungal or insect issues.  By practicing Plant Health Care, the amount of toxic pesticides released into the environment is reduced drastically.  Because Plant Health Care is a preventative approach, the plant and its requirements become the central focus rather than response to symptoms.

If you have that feeling that you are being eaten alive, you are not alone. We can spray your property to assist in insect populations.  Whether seasonally, or for a special event, we are your guys.  The spray usually dries in about 15 minutes, posing no real threat to you, your family, guests or your pets.

Ornamental trees and shrubs dry out during the cold winter months.  Applying an anti-desiccation covers evergreen leaves and deciduous nodules in a waxy coating, effectively closing them so they do not lose water.  This is helpful in preventing winter burn and sun scald to the leaves.


With a tree inventory, clients know exactly what they have on their property. We have found that people are better able to budget for their tree care. Rather than reacting to tree situations, property owners are able to act proactively and focus on tree health. We map the property, prepare a cumulative tree inventory and work together to formulate a cohesive plan to ensure the beauty and safety of the property.

Cabling can increase the safety of a tree that has multiple stems or a deep v crotch.  When installed correctly, cables decrease the movement of the upper portion of a tree, often preventing damage from heavy winds and storms.  Cabling is also used to prevent or restore damage(d) hedges of arborvitaes, training the shrubs to stay in line.  We also practice what is called 'guy wiring'.  We use tension to train trees that have grown skewed to return to a more vertical position.


This service was born from the dry, dry summer of 2010.  We are able to assist customers with well issues by filling up our sprayer with water and saturating the ground based on need.  Water is always less expensive than all new plantings.
