Proper fertilization is essential for the healthy growth of trees, just like any other plant. Adequate nourishment enables trees to better withstand extreme weather conditions, stress, insect infestations, and diseases. It is recommended to fertilize trees at least twice annually – in spring and fall – to ensure they receive the necessary nutrients to thrive during the growing season and prepare for winter dormancy.

Our certified arborists can determine the most suitable fertilizer blends for your trees and shrubs, based on the specific time of year. We also customize the application process to ensure optimal tree health.

Tree Fertilization Methods

Tree Fertilization in Gurnee, IL

There are two ways to administer tree fertilization: direct injection and soil injection. The most suitable method for your property will depend on the type of trees in your yard. Our team of arborists will assess your trees to determine the optimal blend of micro and macro nutrients required for fertilization, based on the type of tree and its overall condition.

  • Direct injection: The direct injection method involves injecting fertilizer directly into the tree’s vascular system. This ensures that the tree can access the nutrients from the fertilizer without any competition from neighboring trees or shrubs. This approach is generally recommended for trees that require a substantial amount of nutrients to thrive.
  • Soil injection: Using a specialized tool, the soil injection method involves injecting fertilizer into the soil surrounding the tree’s root system. The fertilizer is delivered below the compact soil layer, enabling the tree roots to receive the nutrients without any competition from the roots of the grass. This approach ensures that the trees receive the maximum benefits from the fertilizer application.
