Growth Control

The arborists at Parshalls have the tools to take care of every customer’s needs. Our urban trees are in soils that don’t always provide the space, water or nutrients that our trees need to live long healthy lives. Our use of growth regulators have many beneficial factors that promote tree health and to control the size of trees in smaller spaces.

Advantages of Growth Regulators:

  • Slowing growth in tights spaces when needed. (Trees close to buildings, utilities).
  • Cost savings in pruning reduction. (Let us keep your shrubs that shape you want longer).
  • Darker, healthier, thicker leaves.
  • Increase in the number of absorbing roots.
  • Increased drought resistance.
  • Increased nutrient and water intake.
  • Remediation of compaction and construction damage to a root system.
  • Allows trees to grow healthier in poor soil conditions.

"Now that I'm in a place where I don't have trees to be taken care of, I'll still give you guys two thumbs up. I always could count on you to come in, take down the trees, clean it all up and then W H A T ? Where were those trees again? And also your congenial atmosphere was always wonderful!"
Miss you guys, Barb Jacob

The stump grinding you did was in extremely hard to reach places and some you had doubts that you could get to but in the end you found a way to do them all! Also, we thought that we would be doing the clean up as it was not on your quote but you did that as well. Our place looks great now!
