It is very important to apply fertilizer to your trees as this is an effective way to ensure they get the nutrients needed to grow to their greatest potential. They are better able to fight off insects and disease as well as endure drought conditions or harsh winters when they are properly nourished. Trees should be fertilized at least twice per year, in the spring and in the fall. Spring fertilization will allow more nutrients to help with the growing season, while the fall fertilization helps the trees get through the winter conditions.

Tree Fertilization Methods

The two main ways to apply tree fertilization are through direct injection and soil injections. The method we choose is based on your trees. Once our professionals have inspected your property, they will suggest the best fertilization method.

  • Direct Injection: This refers to injecting fertilizer into the tree’s vascular system to make sure it gets all the nutrients. This eliminates competition for the nutrients between plants and grass.  This type of treatment is recommended for trees that need major nutrition.
  • Soil Injection: There is a special tool used for soil injection. It allows for fertilizer to be injected beneath the soil and into the root system of the tree. With this method, arborists allow the tree to get all of its nutrients. Once we do a proper assessment of your trees, we can let you know the best mixture of macro and micro nutrients for the fertilizer.
