Let’s face it, trees and shrubs need a balanced nutrient mix for proper growth and survival—just like we need a balanced mix of vitamins and minerals in our diets. In a natural setting, trees are fed by the rich blanket of hummus on the forest floor. However, in our urban landscaped environment, fertilizer is needed to take the place of this natural food.
Our urban landscape also imposes additional stresses on trees and shrubs that are not a concern in the forest setting. Stress caused compacted soils, air pollution, road salts, poor drainage, and competition with turf grasses can impair the health and ultimately the growth of the tree. Without realizing it, are stressed trees are becoming more and more susceptible to infestation by insects and disease, further compounding the restricted grow. With that in mind, one of the best ways we can help our landscape plants grow healthier and to make them more resistant to pest infestation is to ensure they receive a proper supply of nutrients.
This is the most effective method to fertilize trees. This process injects a water and fertilizer mixture under high pressure 8 to 10 inches below the soil surface, right where the feeder roots are. The injections are placed in a grid pattern in and around the trees drip line. There are many advantages to fertilizing this way. The high pressure injection forces the water fertilizer mix throughout the root zone, which not only feeds all the roots, but also reduces soil compaction and encourages additional root zone aeration. Depending upon your plant varieties, and there general state of health, this deep root injection fertilizer technique may be suggested at various times throughout the season, although, spring and fall are generally the best times of the season. It is important to remember tree roots remain active year round and the tree will benefit from these fertilizations even though the tree may appear dormant.
Why fertilize a tree?
If you fertilized your lawn, you may not have fertilized your trees. Tree care companies have specialized equipment that can deliver fertilizer right where the trees need it—the trees root zone, just below your lawns root zone. In forests, trees shade out grass and other plants so the trees roots don’t have to compete with roots of other plants. Trees are free to absorb all the nutrients they need. Your lawn is a harsher environment for trees. In your lawn, trees must compete with grass roots for valuable nutrients. When you drop fertilizer on top of your lawn, the grass receives most of the benefits. A different type and method of fertilization is used to fertilize trees than what is used to fertilize lawns, since trees don’t grow the same as grass. For trees, slow release fertilizer is applied directly to the tree roots, just below the grass roots. This can be done with special liquid fertilizers injected into the soil, sometimes called deep-root fertilization.
