In 1938, my father started a business in Clovis, New Mexico called Clovis Nursery. I remember years later as a child being with him when he drilled a hole in the bark of a Peach tree, putting in Quinine, a by-product of the Cinchona tree found in the rain forest, which is also used to fight Malaria and to kill Peach tree bores. I never knew how far ahead of his time he was in what would later be called the Microinjection Industry. We have carried that legacy through with Tree Doctor 911, never spraying any harmful pesticides into the atmosphere of our urban environments. We only inject trees, essentially putting the tree on an IV drip by giving shots to treat the pathogens/parasites in the tree. Using 31 different chemicals, we are able to treat most pathogens/parasites with this microinjection process. Today, we are able to save over 98% of the half-dead or dying trees that we inject. This has helped give us our worldwide reputation.
A part of what you spend with Tree Doctor 911 is reinvested in saving the irreplaceable living legacies of our planet, our old-growth trees. We are also teaching others how to replant new trees in biological corridors worldwide. In the last 4 years, I have worked in our off-season around the world in my non-profit company named "Air Planet". I have consulted and worked in several islands in the West Indies, the lower 830 miles of the Amazon Basin in Brazil, countries in Central America, the Solomon Islands and New Zealand. Reinvesting part of what you spend with us at Tree Doctor 911 saves the Earth's ONLY AIR PURIFICATION SYSTEM, our trees.
Our reputation has grown and continues to grow worldwide at being "the best at saving sick trees". We stay on the cutting edge of advances made in tree medicine and solutions worldwide. This year, our non-profit company, Air Planet, will be opening it's own research station in the rain forest near Bijagua, Costa Rica. We will be inviting researchers from around the world to come and work at our facility to help us unravel what we believe is one of God's most beautiful mysteries. That is, we believe that every disease on the planet and every environmental problem already has it's prescription to heal that disease growing somewhere in nature; it is up to us to find that prescription. This is what our research station will be dedicated to. Also, starting in 2015, we will have a program where you and your children or grandchildren can come and visit us in Costa Rica and learn about the rain forest and being good stewards of this planet God has left in our care, and the great wonders of trees worldwide.
Every hundredth cell at the bottom of the tree leaf is a gas-exchange component called a stomata. The stomata takes in the polluted air, keeping the carbon and making it into wood, and converting and returning the polluted air to the atmosphere, completely filtered as the most pure oxygen on the planet. While in some highly impacted urban environments, there is more carbon monoxide and pollution than the trees can process, because the trees' filtration systems are too small to handle such high volumes of toxicity. The unfiltered air becomes acid rain, which kills all green living things, including trees. If population numbers outgrow our forests, there is no turning back, and the planet will die a suffocating death. In turn; mother nature's only answer to save our planet would be a mass genocide--to reverse and re-balance the numbers--this sounds like a scene from a horror movie, but the Earth is moving in that direction at an unprecedented rate*.
However, the air you breathe is not as dependent as the rain forests of the Amazon basin, but the trees in your own yard and community. The trees in our urban forest clean our air. NEVER take the attitude of "well, it's just an old scrub tree, who cares?" It is much more than that, it is the beautiful God-created air filter that cleans the air for you and your children to breathe. Work with us, and join us, as we work to protect and keep the air we all breathe. Work locally and think globally to preserve and protect one of our greatest God given gifts, our trees. We will continue to reinvest a part of the profit from Tree Doctor 911 to save trees worldwide.
Thank you for your help.
