Plant Health Care - Tree Fertilization

Deep root fertilization is the method in which liquid fertilization is injected into the soil near a tree’s roots to promote defense against pests, healthy growth, and maintenance of nutrients. One of the main benefits of performing deep root fertilization is that it is more accurate than traditional stakes and surface pellets. Because these two methods are spread across the soil and can only affect a small area, it can result in uneven dosing and minimal absorption. 


Benefits of Deep Root Fertilization

  • Quick Absorption - The fertilizer is applied as a liquid so the tree can quickly absorb nutrients. 

  • Unique Needs - No two trees are the same, with deep root fertilization the certified arborists mixes a custom blend of nutrients for your tree and soil needs. 

  • Soil Aeration - this method not only helps with fertilization, but also aids in aeration of the soil, helping prevent compaction.
