Oakmont Environmental Hybrid Tree and Shrub Program
Trees and shrubs truly thrive in a natural forest environment, where there are plenty of leaves and debris that decompose to create an abundance of natural microbiology in the soil. On the forest floor, the circle of life is complete.
At Oakmont Environmental we use Technology and Science to recreate this natural circle of life. Oakmont Env programs are based on the provision of scientifically accurate and technologically advanced techniques for diagnostics and application services, utilizing soil testing, moisture monitoring, plant specific nutrition, and targeted insect suppression.
Once we chart your property and identified the unhealthy and healthy areas we can incorporate the proper probiotic and living-microorganism-filled organics to restore the microbiology in and around trees and shrubs. This greatly improves root development, which provides greater uptake of nutrients and water, ultimately growing stronger, healthier trees and shrubs
Organic, Synthetic and Nutritional Products Installation:
During installation, our Green Hybrid blends, containing a mycorrhizae additive and fertilizer help establish roots while our Organics adds to the living soil microbiology, creating an environment where roots can truly thrive. Our Organics will also help the new plant with nutrient uptake allowing for a fuller, more vibrant plant.
100% Organic Fertilizing Program:
At Oakmont we can create a 100% organic program. Organic nutrients such as NPK or insecticidal soaps can be integrated to increase the efficacy of the organic program on an as needed basis.
Oakmont IPM and Hybrid Fertilizing Program
Oakmont is combining Organic Bio-Nutritional products with a traditional tree/shrub program and an IPM (Integrated Pest Management) approach to maintain a Natural Balance while protecting your Investment. With this program, we will greatly reduce your pesticides, specifically bifenthrin and imidacloprid. Our Organics will help these products work more effectively at lower rates and can be used with any of the other products Oakmont uses as part of a normal tree and shrub program.
The result…Healthy Trees & Shrubs& a Safer “BLUE” Environment!
At Oakmont, we use bio-nutritional products for all fertilizer methods, both foliar as well as deep-root feeding. Bio-nutritional products prefer to be applied by soil drenching around the trunk of the tree out to about halfway to the drip line in conjunction with organic deep root feeding. With this method, there is less possibility of spreading any root-borne diseases.
Your Tree and Shrub Program
Oakmont’s Tree and Shrub Program visits include a thorough diagnostic walk through and scan of the property to determine any environmental stresses, insects, and disease activity that should be treated preventatively or curatively. All of Oakmont’s insect treatments are based on an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) process that treats certain plant material at the proper time of the year to ensure year-round protection while minimizing the use of pesticides.
Our trained horticultural specialists will identify active pests during each round and apply products to only those plants that have damaging thresholds present or are susceptible to pest issues at that time of year
1st Application: March
Fertilization & Insect Suppressant – Organic Fertilizer is applied to the root zone of landscaped plants. This feeding increases the health and vigor of plants along with enhanced color, growth and flowering potential. As part of pour IPM program a pest application of OMRI Listed Horticultural Oil and Insecticide will be added to coat plants and smother over-wintering insects and their eggs.
3rd Application: May-June
Fertilization, Insect & Disease Suppressant – This third feeding is to further increase the health and vigor of plants, it continues to enhance color, growth and flowering. The second insect and disease application protects midseason growth from pests that have several lifecycles during the season. Pest problems will be controlled for continued health and vigor of landscape plants.
5th Application: August-September
Fertilization, Insect & Disease Suppressant – The first Fall fertilization of plants will help spur recovery from summer stress and prepare the landscape for winter. Fertilization at this time of year promotes essential root growth and the overall health of the plants. This insect and disease application gives late season plant protection from re-occurring pests that emerge this time of the year.
2nd Application: April
Fertilization, Insect & Disease Suppressant – Fertilizer is applied to the foliage of landscaped plants. Insect & Disease Suppressants protect emerging leaves from damage caused by mites, insects and diseases. This is a critical time of year because insects are hatching and want to feed so they can reproduce again.
4th Application: July
Fertilization, Insect & Disease Suppressant – The fourth insect and disease application gives late season plant protection from re-occurring pests that emerge this time of the year. Continuing to protect your plants will result in a healthier landscape. Fourth fertilization of plants will help them through summer stress and maintain root growth into the Fall.
6th Application: October
Fall Fertilization, Insect & Disease Suppressant, Horticultural Oils & Natural Anti-Desiccant – The final Fall fertilization of plants will help sustain the recovery from summer stress and further prepare the landscape for winter. Fertilization at this time of year continues essential root growth and the overall health of the plants. OMRI Listed Horticultural oils are applied to control overwintering pests on ornamentals. Horticultural oils are applied to dormant plants and will reduce the population of certain insects and mites.
