As Fort Collins residents, we love our trees and shrubs. As a matter of fact, we’re famous for them! Show the love by keeping your landscape green and healthy.
Lawn Doctor of Fort Collins combines over 30 years of local ownership with that of locally trained, experienced technicians and certified arborists to offer plant health care services that keep your trees and shrubs thriving. With Lawn Doctor, you can be confident that your valuable trees and shrubs are in good hands.
From March through October, we come out to your property to monitor, detect and treat insects and diseases. We also offer deep root feeding and systemic treatments to help your landscape flourish in our clay soils and extreme climates. The more frequent our visits, the better chance of preventing problems and keeping your yard looking its best.
Of particular concern is the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB). Since its arrival in Boulder in 2013, that city alone has lost hundreds of ash trees. All untreated ash trees will eventually die; however preventative treatment plans are over 90 percent effective in protecting your valuable ash trees. Call us today to make sure your trees are protected!

Plant Health Care Program & Preventative Services
We don’t believe in wilted leaves, ugly bushes, sad shrubberies, or droopy trees. We keep them healthy with our Fort Collins tree care programs and preventative services. Just like our Lawn Maintainer services, we offer both single applications and full service programs, so you can fit a plant health care plan into your budget.
In early spring, we recommend treating your trees with horticultural oil for your first service. This process will help smother mites, scale and other pest’s eggs on your precious trees. Subsequent treatments include inspect and treat visits for a plethora of insect and disease infestations. Deep Root Fertilization is done in the spring and fall months to add important nutrients to our poor soils.
Most services start at $69 per application and are adjusted according to your landscape’s needs.
