There are many misconceptions about tree fertilization, from why we fertilize trees, to how we fertilize trees, and even when we fertilize trees. The one thing that is a constant is that no one fertilizer is ideal for all your trees & plants in your landscape.
Whether you need to fertilize young trees, mature heritage trees, or any age between, a proper site visit from an certified arborist to thoroughly inspect your trees is the only way to prescribe a quality fertilization program. Our arborists will be able to inspect your trees and compare them against local species standards to determine the fertilization requirements. In some cases, we take soil and tissue samples to have them analyzed to assist our arborists in the perfect fertilizer for your site.
The following are only a few reasons you might need to fertilize your trees to ensure they remain a healthy landscape asset:
- Young tree growth encourager
- Planting/transplant assistance
- Nutrient defines
- Construction stress
- Insect/disease maintenance
- Combat depleted or poor urban soils
Whether you need to fertilize to promote nice growth on a valuable shade tree or stimulate a more intense floral outburst from your favorite ornamental shrub, the type of product used and the timing of the treatment should be handled on a plant-by-plant basis.
