TREE & SHRUB FERTILIZATION
DO MY TREES AND SHRUBS NEED TO BE FERTILIZED?
Trees and shrubs thrive without the addition of fertilizer in their natural, wooded environment because the soils are rich with organic matter from the forest.
In our backyards, trees are forced to compete with our lawns and other plants, and we frequently remove fallen leaves, organic matter, and other potential sources of nutrients that would naturally have helped them flourish.
WHEN IS THE IDEAL TIME TO FERTILIZE TREES AND SHRUBS?
Fertilizing in certain seasons does bring benefits.
Fertilizing in fall…
Helps recover nutrients the soil lost during summertime.
Promotes root growth during the winter (if the soil is not frozen)
Fertilizing in spring…
Supports a new flush of growth during the quintessential growing season.
Greens up tree leave so they stay vibrant through summer and into fall.
Supplies essential nutrients that keep the tree healthy and help it fight off infection.
