    Who has tree and shrub programs geared for the ohio and surrounding zones?
    We are going to offer this service next year and would like some info on programs. Anyone who could share the do's, don'ts, and how to's?

    I will be taking the ornamental test in Jan.

    I ran a search with almost 200 topics came up but none with the info I was looking for.

    I do offer T/S programs here in central PA. We are zone 7 here.

    Our program usually consists of 5 services through out the growing season. We do a thorough inspecton of all plant material and treat as needed and preventively for problems that may occur before the next service. Our target price is about $150/hr. We do not offer fertilization as part of the program we sell it as a seperate service with it's own pricing structure. payup
