Closer look into Deep Root Fertilization

Whats the most effective way to improve your tree's health? Deep root fertilization is the preferred and most effective method for fertilizing trees and shrubs. Through this process, time-release fertilizer is pressure-injected into the root zone of the tree or shrub. Well-nourished trees and shrubs have a better resistance to disease, insect damage, and drought.

Deep root fertilizing can help keep your trees and shrubs healthy and promote foliage that adds beauty and value to your property. The product is injected directly into the root zone area for maximum benefits. Its slow-release action won’t burn delicate feeding roots or turf. Deep root fertilization can also help with problems of soil compaction. Liquid fertilizer injected into the root zone under pressure helps aerate the soil. It opens up air pockets, helping to provide much-needed oxygen to the root system. We recommend this treatment once a year, because it is released 60% the first year, 30% the second year, and 10% the third year.

The fertilizer is injected below the roots of the surface vegetation to provide maximum benefit to the slightly deeper roots of the trees and shrubs. Surface fertilization, such as typical lawn fertilization, usually does not provide a significant benefit to trees and shrubs. When fertilizer is applied to the surface, the thick, fibrous roots of lawns and ground covers utilize and hold the nutrients and do not allow them to infiltrate to the deeper sub-surface soil layer where the roots of the trees and shrubs reside. A fungicide can also be added to the fertilizer to aid in curing fungal disorders such as root rot.

If you're looking for the absolute best for your tree or shrub, the deep root fertilization is the best and most effective treatment there is to reduce stress and increase vigor!
