One of the benefits of living in Florida is the beautiful palm trees that bring an added tropical flare and sense of relaxation to our landscapes. Palm trees have special tree care needs, such as routine fertilization to help ensure they stay healthy and strong. Routine tree care is a preventative measure to help trees fight off the many tree diseases and insect pest infestations they are susceptible to. Therefore, it is highly recommended to have a tree service plan with a local arborist, failure to take preventative measures could result in the loss of your palm trees. Many palm tree diseases are not correctable but, are preventable.
