Plant Health Care

Did You Know Removal of an Unhealthy Tree May NOT Be Necessary?

If you’ve noticed your tree is not as healthy as it used to be, it may be possible to prolong its life through plant health management.

Customers often call us for tree removal after their tree has been dead for some time. Had they called us at the first signs of being unhealthy, we could have possibly saved it.

A healthy tree can fight most disease and insects on its own. But when it’s overall health is jeopardized it becomes susceptible to disease and/or insect infestation.

Causes of Poor Tree Health.

If you notice your trees are unhealthy, you may have issues with:

  • Girdling roots
  • Damaged roots
  • Inadequate soil
  • Compacted soil
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • Invasive insects

Treatments to Improve Tree Health.

Treatments for poor tree health:


Soil amendments

Fungicide sprays

Insecticide sprays

Air spade work

Soil de-compaction

Vertical & surface mulching

Tree watering

If you live in a city or urban environment chances are that, without fertilization, your trees may not get the nutrients they need. Most trees planted in the city limits will undergo stress.

In this case it will be important that you provide them with proper care. Call us today for help with developing a treatment plan.

Keep your tree healthy and it will take care of itself!

Dolce's have done a great job yet again for us! They have been caring for our little forest for over 5 years. We had a new roof put on this spring so they came to trim overhanging branches, and remove a massive tree too near the house. They are hard workers, quick, courteous, and always a pleasure to work with. They do a great job caring for the health of our trees, as well as protecting our property and family when it's time for a tree to come down. THANK YOU DOLCE'S!!

We have used Dolce's Tree Service twice over the past two years and highly recommend them. Their professionalism is outstanding. They took out 5 trees the first time and 20 trees the second. Six of the trees were about 100 feet tall and within a couple of feet of our house and garage. Watching them take out those trees without any damage to the house was incredible. The clean up after the tree removal was equally impressive. They picked up all the branches and raked the area. If you are looking for quality tree removal at reasonable prices, this is the company to call.

Almost anyone can trim trees but Dolce's has arborists on staff who know the right branches to remove to maximize the life and health of the tree. Aaron and his crew were great to work with. They had the right gear (a spider lift) and completely cleaned up after the trimming was done. They're a great team.

Dolce's just finished their 2nd round at our home for this fall/ winter season. We are so grateful for their professionalism, knowledge, willingness to teach & educate us, and efficiency in taking our trees down. They sure know this business! We had ~13 dead ash trees removed, a beautiful Oak tree trimmed up (it had a lot of dead wood), among other tasks. Two Ash trees were very close to our home & they took them down without any problems to any buildings or power lines. Our property is much safer & more beautiful now! We are ready for heavy winter snow storms. Thanks Dolce's! We will definitely be calling them back for future tree work. We have about an acre of land w/ a tree every 20 feet any which way you walk. We have been thoroughly impressed with Dolce's. They may not be the cheapest, but they are the BEST in town!

Hands down the best tree cutting service around. Customer service is superb, honest people and amazing work ethic which is very hard to come by these days. I would recommend Dolce’s any day of the week!


This past Sunday i noticed that our very large and very old abortive was totally infested with bag worms and was turning brown. There was no way I could treat it myself. I contacted two companies that serviced where I live. Only one called me back the next day...Dolce's! They came out that very day and saved my tree from being eaten alive! You can not beat service like that! They will be the only one's I call in the future!

I have used Dolce’s on several occasions and no matter what they never disappoint. I have trees that I have treated for disease every single year and also have had 2 very very large trees removed. Very professional. Lori in the office is so helpful and all the workers are very professional and friendly. I highly recommend!!

Dolce Tree Service has been wonderful to work with. They took the time to look at my trees, discuss which ones needed some work and gave me a good estimate before they began work. I wondered what types of trees were on my property and he took the time to walk around and give me a quick education on everything in my woods. When they came on sight, they were professional, quick, cleaned up their mess and made my yard look amazing. THANK YOU! I would highly recommend them! They also give back to the community!

Just yesterday, we had a branch, larger than most trees, fall and crush our fence. Unfortunately, the tree that the branch fell from was weakened by the loss of the branch and the whole thing had to come down. This tree was massive. On top of that, it grew right between our home and the neighbors. It was very hard to get to, and in hindsight, I think only Dolce's was equipped to handle such a challenge. Two cranes, and a ton of work later, the tree is gone and my family is safe once again. Thank you Dolce's!!! You really went above and beyond yesterday. We greatly appreciate it.

Had a wonderful time at their Maple syrup tour. They did an excellent job of teaching and engaging the kids, letting them help tap a tree! We could watch them boiling down sap in the sugar shack, taste the syrup (with pancakes and sausage), and enjoy the ambiance of the trapper house. In the store they had samples of their maple candy, bourbon maple syrup, and jerky. All were so delicious we had to get some to take home. They also had maple syrup cotton candy! Our girls loved it! So family friendly. Just wonderful people sharing their passion with others. Be sure to dress for the weather though, it'll improve your experience.
