Fertilization, Soil Management Solution, Healthy Trees Start with Healthy Soils

The soils around trees in natural surroundings (like the ones in the forest) contain diverse populations of microorganisms and available nutrients that feed off one another. Because of these organisms, these trees tend to live much longer and stronger lives.

The soils of ‘urban’ trees are often neglected. As a home and tree owner, you can assist in promoting a healthy tree by maintaining your trees’ soil. We have developed various methods – customized to your property – to help promote a healthy soil environment.

Fertilization is another important aspect of mature tree care. Trees require certain nutrients (essential elements) to function and grow. Urban landscape trees can be growing in soils that do not contain sufficient available nutrients for satisfactory growth and development. In these situations it may necessary to fertilize to improve plant vigor.

Fertilizing a tree can improve growth; however, if fertilizer is not applied wisely, it may not benefit the tree at all and may even adversely affect the tree. Mature trees making satisfactory growth may not require fertilization.

When considering supplemental fertilizer, it is important to know which nutrients are needed and when and how they should be applied. Soil conditions, especially pH and organic matter content vary greatly, making the proper selection and use of fertilizer a somewhat complex process.
