Why is the Tree Health Care Program Important?

In nature, a tree receives essential elements and nutrition from the decomposition of organic material and leaf litter. In an urban setting, we frequently remove this material, and plant grass and other plants that compete with the tree for moisture and nutrition. According to Louisiana State University’s Agricultural Center, maintaining a layer of mulch beneath urban trees to mimic the forest floor will best benefit the health of the trees. Since we understand that it is not always in the best interest of the property to mulch or to allow the accumulation of leaf litter beneath an urban tree, Bayou Tree Service created a program to provide the trees with the elements and nutrition they may be missing in the urban setting.
