Five years ago another Professional Landscape & Design Company from Branchburg, New Jersey planted six 10'beautiful Leland Cypress trees along the perimeter of my backyard in addition to two Dogwood trees, one 11'feet high. In it's first season the 11' Dogwood never flourished and eventually died 3 years later, despite my calls for help beginning in the very first year. For the first couple of years the Leland Cypress seemed to grow beautifully, but not to potential. In addition, one by one I began to notice a significant amount of branches progressively die from the inside out. All I could imagine was eventually loosing all six of them as I had so quickly lost the beautiful Dogwood Tree
Knowing I would receive no assistance from the Landscaping Company responsible for planting them, I reached out to other Landscapers, and Nursery's in my local area for help, including testing the soil. Much to my disappointment no one could identify why this was occurring. I am a longtime customer of Parker Greenhouse, in Scotch Plains, NJ. The quality of their plants and trees, in addition to their excellent customer service, has always exceeded my expectations. After describing my problem with Debbie C. at Parker Greenhouse, in Scotch Plains, NJ, she highly recommended Caffrey Tree Landscape, attesting if Bob Caffrey could not diagnose the problem, then no one can.
I called Bob and he was at my house the next day. In less than five minutes he diagnosed the problem and provided the solution that would nurse my trees back to health. Here's the catch ... As deep root fertilizing was part of the process, before he could even begin, he needed to correct the problem no one could identify. The balls of my trees had been planted into the ground surrounded by the wire and burlap they had arrived in. These materials were the culprits, tangling and preventing root growth, and ultimately choking each tree. Bob Caffery was the only landscaper to immediately narrow down the problem.
The very next morning Bob and his team were hard at work on the root system, nurturing each tree, "finally" allowing natural growth in a healthy future. In addition, he offered to assess the rest of my property to ensure maximum tree health at no additional charge.
I wish I had met Bob and his team years ago. I know if I did, I would still have that beautiful Dogwood to cast its shade in my backyard!
