Healthy Trees for a Healthy Planet
With more than 60,000 species of trees covering the earth, it’s easy to understand why they are a vital part of our ecosystem, producing oxygen and creating habitat for birds and other animals. Trees protect plants and shrubs from seasonal storms, wind, and erosion, and provide stunning landscapes for our parks, commercial space and urban communities.
Root Fertilizing for Tree Growth & Vitality
Responsible management means keeping trees healthy and protected from disease in a variety of ways including root fertilization. Trees require three main nutrients to be healthy – nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. Without the benefit of a soil test, you can usually assume the soil should carry enough phosphorous and potassium to sustain the tree, however, nitrogen is most likely the key ingredient your tree is lacking. Nitrogen can be easily spread onto the ground around the tree, and will be carried down into the roots with water. We might not think of fertilizing trees as important, but in nature, fallen leaves and debris in the autumn are left to decompose into the soils surrounding the trees, causing fertilization to happen naturally. Our beautifully manicured lawns lack the opportunity for fertilization to happen naturally, as we rake leaves and debris off the ground before the onset of winter. Maintaining strong healthy trees reduces the risk of breakage in the roots, trunks, and upper crowns. Solidifying the health of roots underground, helps guarantee your tree’s future, and the memories made under its branches by your family and friends.
