If you are looking to care for your trees, one option you may have come across is organic tree care. Just like with organic gardening and food, people turn to organic tree care as a way to take care of their trees without harming the environment or other plants. You can also work with a Kirtland Hills tree company like VanCuren Tree Service to make sure your trees are as healthy as possible.
Organic tree care involves the use of things like natural fertilizer, natural insect and disease management techniques, and organic mulches. These organic products are often used in conjunction with good tree care techniques like proper pruning and watering and soil aeration.
Using organic products helps to not harm the environment but can also benefit more than just the tree or plant the products are applied to. It helps add health, beneficial organisms to the ecosystem since these products use microorganisms instead of chemicals. Chemicals can destroy good organisms in the soil, plants, trees, water, etc. in addition to destroying the harmful ones. When you increase the beneficial organisms, you can create an environment that has less space for harmful organisms.
Organic products also help different parts of the tree. For example, using organic products can increase the tree’s root mass, which will in turn make the tree healthier and stronger. The tree will have an increased capacity for water and nutrients, so you will not have to water them more.
This also helps to naturally boost a tree’s immune system. When the tree receives proper nutrients, its immune system is stimulated, so it is less prone to disease and is healthier and more attractive.
Organic mulch usually consists of materials like grass clippings, manure, sawdust, hardwood bark, wood chips, peat moss, shredded leaves, and mushroom compost. In fact, when organic mulch is mixed properly, it can make your yard look more beautiful too. It can also control the weeds that grow around the base of trees. Organic mulch is a great way to recycle those clippings and leftovers you would normally throw out, and nourish your trees basically for free.
If you’re interested in natural pest control, bringing in helpful insects, like ladybugs, can be a great way to go about that. It helps eliminate pests naturally and creates balance in the ecosystem.
Many synthetic fertilizers are made from things like natural gas and petroleum. While these products deliver many of the macronutrients a tree needs, they do not always deliver the micronutrients as well, which the tree needs too. They may also destroy good microbes, so a tree can’t get every bit of nutrients it needs, just the main ones.
Other benefits include not exposing yourself to harmful chemicals that could potentially cause health issues. Organic tree care and gardening can also increase the nutrients in the food you grow.
Organic tree care can be beneficial for many people. By working with a tree care company in Kirtland Hills like VanCuren Tree Service, you can take care of your trees in the best way possible and ensure their health and safety.

I had a lot of tree trimming done and removals and I barely noticed the crew was at our house. They did their work quickly without interfering and cleaned up very nicely.
