Improve Your Trees’ Health

Tree health begins from deep in the soil on up. Certified Arbor specialists can advise and diagnose what the optimal soil conditions need to be, identify insect or disease problems and how to keep your tree landscape beautiful.

Professional Tree Fertilization

Trees, like other living things, need the right mix of macro-nutrients to stay healthy.

Specifically, trees need the following macro-nutrients:

• Nitrogen (N).
• Phosphorus (P).
• Potassium (K).
• Calcium (Ca).
• Magnesium (Mg).
• Sulfur (S).

They also need the following micro-nutrients:

• Iron (Fe).
• Manganese (Mn).
• Zinc (Zn).
• Copper (Cu).
• Boron (B).
• Chlorine (Cl).
• Molybdenum (Mo).

By having an expert evaluate the soil composition before applying fertilization, it ensures that trees get the right amount of each nutrient. A deficiency in iron, for instance, causes a condition called iron chlorosis in which leaves yellow between veins.

Deep Root Fertilization

There are various methods to provide deep root fertilization. For instance, an expensive spray rig can nourish roots with the Liquid Injection Method. However, this depends on the availability of water. If compaction is an issue, the Drill Hole Method should be used. There is also a specialized hybrid method called Soilbuilding (the trademark name) to fertilize deep roots.
