Having Green Tree apply ECO-Friendly Fertilizer to your landscape trees and shrubs is one of the best tree maintenance services you can invest in. Deep root fertilizing is used to deliver essential nutrients to trees and shrubs by injecting nutrients 8-12 inches deep, at evenly spaced intervals, beneath a tree right into the root zone. Using high-pressure equipment, we are able to control the exact amount of fertilizer needed to avoid the chance of over fertilization.
Just as humans need a balanced diet of nutrient-rich foods to function at their best potential, trees can also benefit from proper areas of soil fertility, micronutrients, soil pH, root stimulation and sunlight for proper growth and survival.
The fertilizers often applied to trees by property owners are just spread on the soil surface, and do not penetrate into the root system at all. Deep root fertilization eliminates this problem by applying fertilizer and tree nutrients directly within the root system, which is key for mature trees with deep and vast root systems.
Benefits of Deep Root Fertilizer
- Well-nourished trees and shrubs have better resistance to disease, insect attack, and drought. Deep root fertilizing can help keep your trees and shrubs healthier, promoting the luxurious foliage that adds beauty and value to your property.
- Deep root feeding will save water because it is more efficient than surface watering, feeding only the tree not weeds that could be growing on the surface. It is also environmentally friend because it reduces erosion, evaporation and fertilizer runoff.
- Corrects deficiencies (Chlorosis-yellowing of leaves)
- Fertilizing trees after tree trimming is done will also help speed the growth of callus tissue to cover the tree wounds
