At Hayes Trees we specialize in Plant Health Care and can provide or arrange custom tree services to fit your needs and budget. What practices (pruning or plant health care needs) do your landscape trees and shrubs really need? Would they benefit from protection from specific insects and or diseases? How might we enhance their health and useful life? Poor treatments will shorten the life of your trees and cost you more in the long term. You will find Ed reasonable, reliable, and only offering recommendations that will benefit your landscape trees.
