Our entire staff attends weekly educational sessions conducted by David and thus, many are able to identify plants. They can suggest practical ways to minimize deer damage. They will alert homeowners if they find diseased plants or invasive plants. Topics of the weekly educational session include plant identification, safety, efficiency, customer service, how to protect your plants from pests and insects, the basics of hardscaping, and other intriguing topics. Crew members attend training every spring sponsored by the Southern Tier Nursery and Landscape Association and can recognize infestations of the Emerald Ash Borer, the Asian Longhorn Beetle and Hemlock Wooly Adelgid.
