What is Thrive? 


Thrive is defined this way : (of a child, animal, or plant) grow or develop well or vigorously.

"the new plant thrived with the proper care"

  • prosper; flourish.

HMI’s advanced plant health care program is designed to embody the word Thrive in relation to your plants and landscape. For those looking for an elevated level of care, our Thrive program ensures that one of our plant health care experts will monitor and treat most pest insect and disease issues as they happen throughout the growing season. Traditional plant health care plans use target treatments to control and manage pests and disease in the urban landscape. Target treatments, while effective in the short term, are a reactionary way to treat and manage your landscape. Using an integrated pest management approach (IPM), our plant health care experts will use an ecosystem based approach that focuses on long term health of the property through a monitor program throughout the growing season. Because the plant health care technician is on your property on a set schedule, this means issues are addressed in a proactive manner rather than reactionary. Your arborist can discuss your priorities for your landscape to customize a  plan for the year.
