1. What is a “Palm Special” fertilizer?
These fertilizers contain additional micro-elements (Manganese, Magnesium, etc.) and trace elements (Zinc, Boron, etc.) amendments.
2. How often does my landscape, palms and ornamentals need to be fertilized?
Due to our shallow, sandy soils and heavy rainfall/irrigation, 3 to 4 applications should be made.
3. What is the black growth covering the leaves of many of my ornamentals?
Sooty Mold. This superficial fungal disease is more of a nuisance than a life death problem. When present, this is a symptom of a more serious problem, scales, aphids, etc.
4. What is the most important factor in having healthy, attractive turf?
Proper mowing. St. Augustine should be maintained at a height of 3 to 4 inches. Ideally, never cut more that one third of the blade at any one time. The longer blade gives your lawn a greener look and a stronger root system.
5. Can this tree that has been improperly pruned (hatracked) be saved?
Yes. Although the tree will never be a “natural” specimen, we will repair and adjust your tree so it will be structurally safe and will begin our program of crown restoration.
6. Why is it better to use One Two Tree than a lawn man for my trees?
Because we have state of the art equipment, provide proper pruning practices for the health and well being of your trees. We are also licensed and fully insured with Liability and Workers Compensation.
7. What is an Arborist?
Is someone specially trained and educated in care and needs of trees and palms in the urban forest.
8. How long will crown restoration take for a hatracked tree?
To restore your tree’s crown (canopy) to what it was and what it could have been, depending on the severity of the damage, it can take from 1 to 5 years to re-build.
9. How can I prepare my trees for Hurricane Season?
We trim, lift, deadwood & thin trees decreasing wind resistance so they don’t act like sails in the wind.
10. What’s the proper way to trim palms?
Remove seeds (particularly coconuts) and trim palm fronds to 3 & 9 o”clock position.
11. How often do I need to prune my trees?
South Florida is a unique environment, here in “zone 10”, plants and trees grow faster all year long, so don’t let your trees go more than 2 years, palms at least once a year.
