As a matter of fact there are many professional green industry trade associations, schools, and colleges that provide research and education to help improve the way trees and shrubs are managed. One such unique and local group is the Southeast Pennsylvania IPM Research Group. For the last 8 years this collaboration of Green Industry Professionals, PA Dept. of Agriculture, Penn State Cooperative Extension and the University of Delaware Cooperative Extension have been conducting research developing educational programs, and promoting the merits of Plant Health Care/IPM program to manage commercial and residential landscapes. The group consists of a select group of private companies, botanical gardens, parks departments, and other grounds managers from across the Delaware Valley of which James Cherry Tree Service Inc. is a charter member. We, as a local tree service, have been participating in the extensive research to improve monitoring practices necessary for a successful Plant Health Care program to suit your specific needs.
