RAL has several options when it comes putting together a customised care plan for your ornamental trees and shrubs.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Program

  For Your Ornamental Trees & Shrubs

With this premium complete care program, RAL comes and evaluates your property's trees and shrubs, in 3 to 6 set intervals during the year. With each visit, the health and appearance each of individual plants are inspected and evaluated by our specialist. And he will determine which chemicals, if any, will be used.
We only apply insecticides and fungicides where they are needed, when they are needed.The same is said for fertilizing as well, you can harm ornamental trees and shrubs by over-fertilizing them. By doing this it also, reduces the amount of other unneeded chemicals that would be applied to your trees and shrubs.
If  a problem is seem, an Ornamental Tree or Shrub Spray of either a Fertilizer, an Insecticide, or a Fungicide  will be applied where necessary.

Dormant Oil Application (Horticultural Oil)

 
Dormant Oil can be applied to help control difficult types of insects in their overwintering (or hibernation) stage, before any damage occurs.
The oil would be sprayed on the bark of affected tree or shrub, where hibernating, non-active insects, eggs and fungi or diseases may be growing.
Dormant Oil offers protection that can prevent significant damage to your ornamental trees and shrubs when performed in November and December or February and March, while your plants are still dormant.
The benefits of dormant oil application are:
Improved and promotes disease resistance.
Adds to Insect infestation protection. (scale and mites)

Deep Root Fertilizing of Large Trees

Deep Root Fertilizing of Large Trees
Done in the fall, this is a process where a high quality nutrient solution is injected into the ground, down the targeted root zone of the tree.
The the micronutrients are pushed down into the root zone under pressure which also helps to aerate the surrounding soil, which increases the amount of much needed oxygen to the root system.
 

Weed Killer and Pre-Emergent in Flower and Shrub Beds

 
Our bed program includes 2 -3 applications of Snap Shot stops all seeds from germinating and Round-up for existing weeds, kills them root and all. 
This significantly reduces the number of weeds in you garden or shrub beds for you. Of course, some hand weeding will still be required.
 
*Exact timing of applications to trees and shrubs depends on the type of plant being treated and the type of pest, fungus or diseases that we are dealing with.*
 
Our applicators are fully licensed and certified, they know which species of plants and trees can receive this type of application and the specific time each app should be done for maximum performance of our applications.
 Should you have any questions, please feel free to call Roger at 248-584-3506 and he can answer your questions directly.
Please call for the pricing of these services, it depends upon different factors, the exact size of the tree(s) for example,ect.

Wedgle Direct Injection for Large Trees

When it comes to our beloved hundred year old plus trees, when something is afflicting one of them it worrisome. Because not only do you lose the beauty and the shade provided by such a large tree but, there would be quite a cost that would come along with removing a dead tree of such magnitude. 

RAL provides treatments to larger trees without having to drill. RAL Lawn & Shrub Care uses state-of-the-art equipment to provide these applications called Wedgle, by Arbor Systems™ 
 Wedgle is a Direct Injection System, is a less invasive, less destructive way of delivering Insecticide, Fungicide and MicroNutrients to your larger trees. Saving trees from pest infestations and diseases that otherwise, would result in the tree being cut down. The chemicals are delivered directly inside the tree at a known dose rate, which means less chemical will have to be used while keeping the tree’s ability to move and store water and safeguards nutrients movement within the tree.

This no-drill injection method is comparable to a small scratch or vaccine injection site that heals quickly.  Methods require drilling are comparable to a cut that requires stitches or a larger, open wound prone to infections and disease. 

Using this technology we can treat and prevent a number of issues with your larger trees, including:
