Integrated Pest Management (IPM)
Taking a holistic approach to your landscape’s integrity, acceptable control of pests is achieved using the least invasive products available or 100% organic programs can be used for peace of mind and home.
Property Analysis & Application
An IPM specialist will perform an in-depth analysis of your property to assess current disease levels, insect/mite populations (both pest and beneficial), environmental stressors, and overall homeostasis of the landscape. If necessary this is followed by a spray treatment to rectify any problems found.
This fertilization mitigates stress and ensures the convalescence of all respective species. It can manifest as a granular top-dressing or a subsoil injection to introduce humic acids complexes, beneficial bacteria strains, naturally occurring hormones, and micro/macro nutrients.
Systemic Antibiotic Application
This injection is implemented to combat bacterial infections in trees. An amenity reintroducing beneficial bacteria is recommended after this treatment.
Systemic Fungicide Application
This treatment can manifest as an injection, foliar application, or basal trunk spray. This will work to either combat the disease directly or promote the tree/shrub’s immune system that it might suppress the disease naturally.
Systemic Insecticide Application
This treatment can manifest as an injection, foliar application, or basal trunk spray. This method for insect control ensures uniform coverage of large trees and prevents damage from insidious organisms such as scales and borers.
Systemic Micro/ Macro Nutrient Injection
This injection provides essential micro/ macro nutrients directly to the tree’s vascular system.

Meet Our Team
Owner, Founder, CEO, Big Cheese
Reno was born and raised in Oklahoma city where he studied Microbiology at Oklahoma University. After moving east and meeting his wife, he settled down in the Lancaster area. After bouncing around between different careers he found a passion in organic lawn care. Disgruntled by companies arbitrarily spraying toxic pesticides, he devised a natural program in the hopes of preserving our environment’s integrity. Today, Reno is continuing to pursue that ideal and passion by constantly pursuing education, researching holistic treatments, and practicing sustainability.
When not working Reno enjoys spending time with his wife Heather, two sons Seth and Jack, and German Shepherds Wyatt and Tess. With a hearty appetite for a wide range of cuisine, he is especially fond of barbeque and can be spotted frequenting the grill, tending to his beehives, and fishing the various streams and rivers of Pennsylvania.
Seth was born and raised in Lancaster County where he studied Premedicine at Millersville University. With growing disillusionment towards opening a private practice, he began working with his father in the family business. Quickly developing a vim and vigor for the industry, he set to work developing a program with sustainability, safety, and efficacy at the forefront. Today, Seth is proud to offer a true IPM program to customers with an option to have 100% organic products used for their tree and shrub care. Ask him about some of his research into mycorrhizae. I dare you.
When not working Seth enjoys having a scotch on the rocks with his girlfriend Lindsey, or hanging out with their two dogs Nietzsche the German Shepherd Nashoba the Husky. Enamored with Lancaster’s downtown scene (especially the food), he can be found strolling through art fairs, philosophizing from armchairs, and spending too much time selecting apples at the grocery store.
