Wentzville is a newer suburban area with a lot of young trees, and Tree Vaccinators, a Jackson Tree Service company, is proud to offer plant health care services that focus on improving the vitality and longevity of your trees. We offer both preventative care and integrated treatments to defend your trees and shrubs against disease. Our certified arborist can inspect your landscape for any problems with your trees and shrubs.
Our providers are certified through the Missouri Department of Agriculture and trained through the University of Missouri in St. Louis.
As our landscapes become ever more populated, plant health care becomes increasingly pertinent to the conscientious tree owner. That’s because there are increasing risks to the well being of your trees. Some factors include:
- Insects. There are various insect pests that threaten tree health. The risk becomes even greater in areas where climate change favors pests, or where invasive species have been introduced.
- Mulch. Though mulching is generally beneficial for your soil, improper mulching for your tree can have negative consequences.
- Plant incompatibilites. When you have plants in close proximity that aren’t native to the same area, or have conflicting growth patterns, one or both may fail to thrive.
- Human Impact on Environment. Proximity to construction can put undue stress on your plants, as can air pollution, soil compaction, and road salt.
As with any type of health care, prevention is the best cure. That’s why we emphasize careful monitoring and a proactive approach to caring for your trees. At the end of the day, your plants are an investment in the beauty and value of your property. Plant health care is one way to ensure you protect that investment.

Types of Plant Health Care Services
Growth regulators: This service can save you a lot of time and money because you would not have to trim as frequently. Growth regulators also allow the plant to allocate energy that would be used for vegetative growth to be directed to other functions. This energy is utilized in other areas such as defense compounds and fine root development, resulting in a number of plant benefits. You might notice a more compact look, and enhanced plant appearance & quality.
Fungicide: Fungicide for trees prevents the spread of disease amongst other trees. For example, one of our JTS salesmen comes over to give you a free estimate and notices that a Pin Oaks tree on your property has Oak Wilt. Although Oak Wilt is a non-curable disease, a fungicide injection in the diseased tree can reduce the spread of the disease. In a best-case scenario, the injection will contain the disease within the infected tree, completely preventing it from spreading.
Deep root fertilizer: Deep root fertilization is one form of tree care and is used when trees are beginning to struggle. We use specialized application methods to boost trees with the proper nutrients going into the growing season.
Pest and disease control: Tree pest and disease control involve observing a landscape, diagnosing specific problems, and providing the appropriate treatments needed. A plant health care specialist and certified arborist can be useful when determining whether a tree needs to be cut down (removed) or treated for diseases or pests, which will save you money in the long run.
