Tree Evaluation and Weed Control by Knowledgeable Professionals
Much More Than a Tree Service Company
You have probably seen our bright green trucks up and down the Roaring Fork Valley, but Prima Plant Services is much more specialized than a landscape or lawn care company. We are a team of professionals trained to expertly evaluate and care for your tree and lawn health concerns. We provide lawn weed control, as well as noxious weed control services. We understand the local Roaring Fork Valley environment and don’t believe in taking extraneous measures unless they are necessary. Often, nature can take care of itself with the help of just a little extra watering or pruning. However, when necessary, we recommend and carefully implement disease management and integrated pest management options.
The Colorado Department of Agriculture has designated Prima Plant Services as a Licensed Commercial Pesticide Applicator for these categories:
• Turf Pest Control
• Ornamental Pest Control
• Industrial and Right-of-Way Weed Control
• Rangeland Pest Control
