Palm Care in Polk County
Here in Polk County, Florida, we are lucky to be able to grow thriving and beautiful palm trees. Since these trees do well in warm weather, the annual average local temperature of 73 degrees makes this area a great place to grow them. However, palm trees do require more specialized care and treatment in order to prevent disease and keep them healthy. At Total Pest Solutions, one of the services we provide is palm care for plants on your residential or commercial property.
We offer quarterly or bi-monthly care for your palms. This includes granulated fertilizer twice a year, along with root and crown drench. One of the most important aspects of palm care that you can do at home is providing the palms with good soil. When we add the granulated fertilizer to the strong soil, it provides an environment where the palm tree can grow and stay healthy. A common issue with potted palm trees is root decay, which happens when the plant receives too much water and doesn’t have a way to drain excess moisture from its soil. Avoid this issue by adding a layer of stones to the bottom of the pot, providing easy drainage of the water.
Certain types of bugs also are drawn to palm trees, so our palm care services can help prevent or eliminate bugs that have made their way into the bark or leaves. We will take excellent care of your palm trees and can keep them looking healthy and beautiful.
