What is Deep Root Fertilization?
Deep root fertilization is a tree maintenance routine that involves fertilizing the tree’s roots directly, by applying an injection of liquid fertilizer into the soil to replenish depleted soil with nutrients. Deep Root Fertilizing is one of the best ways to get nutrients directly to your plant, while aerating the soil. Deep root feeding is necessarily beneficial in suburban areas, due to lack of nutrient rich soil.
Best Time for Deep Root Feeding?
If a tree is showing out of season yellowing leaves, deadwood, new shoots growing improperly, or visible decay, then deep root fertilization will be helpful whenever done, as long as the ground is not frozen.
Spring time root fertilization: If the deep root feeding is done for tree care and maintenance only, then ideally the fertilization should be done in the spring.
Fall time root fertilization: It will replenish nutrients used up over summer months. Also, if the ground is not frozen, then root feeding will promote root growth during the winter months.
Grass fertilization is simple as it’s done close to the surface of the ground. Tree and shrub root feeding, on the other hand, requires us to get close to the roots – and those roots are far from the surface of the ground, particularly with mature trees. Our deep root fertilization approach allows us to get much-needed nutrients right to the source, helping your trees and shrubs absorb the nutrients easily and quickly. With our experts on the job, we can help your trees and shrubs thrive by injecting liquid fertilizer deep in the soil, replenishing depleted nutrients, without causing any harm to the already established roots.
With the right nutrients, your trees and shrubs can look gorgeous for many years to come. Set them on the right path with our tree and shrub fertilizing service today!
