Plants benefit from proper fertilization in numerous ways, making it essential for your trees be fertilized. Trees, in particular, receive important nutrients from fertilization. These nutrients help the trees grow to their full potential and give them the strength to fight off disease, insects, harsh conditions like drought, severe weather, and stress. To receive proper nutrition, trees should undergo fertilization two times a year: during the spring and in the fall. Spring fertilization allows trees to have nutrients for the growing season, and fall fertilization allows trees to better withstand harsh winter conditions.

Tree Fertilization Methods
There are two ways to apply tree fertilization: direct injection and soil injection. Determining which method is best varies for each situation. Our professionals can recommend the best fertilization method.
- Direct Injection: When using this method, we inject the fertilizer directly into the tree’s vascular system, guaranteeing that the tree receives all of the nutrients. Direct injection eliminates competition for the nutrients between nearby plants and grass. This method is usually recommended for trees in dire need of proper nutrition.
- Soil Injection: We utilize a special tool when dealing with soil injection. The tool allows us to inject the fertilizer beneath the soil and right to the tree’s root system. By doing this, our arborists are able to reach compact soil and place fertilizer out of the grass roots’ reach. Such a method ensures the tree will receive the nutrients. After doing an assessment of your trees, we will figure out the correct mixture of macro and micro nutrients for the fertilizer.
