Prairie West’s ISA certified arborists take great pride in helping Calgary and area homeowners protect the beauty and vibrancy of their trees and shrubs. Nurturing and caring for these woody plants requires attention and proper identification of pruning needs, nutrient requirements and treatment plans for pests and diseases to create the best possible environment for your trees and shrubs to flourish. Selection of the proper blend of fertilizers, treatment programs such as horticulture oils, foliage sprays or pesticides are vital to keeping your plants healthy.
Choosing the proper tree or shrub for your yard is also important to ensure the long term health of the plant. Items such as the desired use of the plant (i.e. shade, aesthetics, privacy barrier, etc.), growing medium, sun exposure and water availability are all important in chosing a plant that will flourish in your yard. Our Horticulturists are always available to help make recommendations for this important and hopefully life long, decision.
