Fertilizing Trees

Tree Fertilizing

Benefits of Fertilizing

Fertilizing can play a crucial role in nurturing the health and vitality of trees, offering a variety of benefits throughout their lifecycle. In the spring, high-nitrogen fertilizers contribute to leaf development and promote lush foliage, assisting trees during the growing season. As autumn approaches and trees transition into dormancy, high-phosphorus fertilizers prioritize root development.

Natural Fertilizer

Organic fertilizers offer a gentle yet effective approach to nourishing trees. By opting for lower nutrient input, organic fertilizers ensure a gradual release of nutrients, reducing the risk of over-fertilization and minimizing stress on trees. Naturally sourced fertilizer acts as a biostimulant, enriching the soil with beneficial microorganisms and promoting overall tree health. It is particularly beneficial for fruiting and flowering trees, enhancing their flowering and fruit production.

Our Method

Deep root fertilizing is an effective technique designed to deliver essential nutrients directly to the root zone of trees, bypassing surface-level competition from grass and other vegetation. Injecting fertilizer and water deep into the soil around the tree’s root system ensures optimal nutrient uptake and promotes growth and vitality. By accessing the roots below the surface, the risk of nutrient loss or runoff is minimized.

While fertilization is crucial for tree health, it’s essential to avoid overfertilizing. It can lead to nutrient imbalances and potentially harm the tree. Trees respond best to fertilizer when there is sufficient rainfall, so we do not fertilize in the hot summer months prone to drought. We offer soil sample analysis to best target the specific nutrients your tree requires. Sometimes, all a tree needs is a better watering schedule, mulch ring, or pest management to thrive. Our expert team is here to provide tailored solutions for every tree in our care.
