Often performed during the seasonal fall months, deep root fertilization is the process of reintroducing nutrients and fertilizer directly to the roots of the tree. Since the roots of a tree are located around 8-14 inches below the surface of the ground, specialized tools are necessary to perform deep root fertilization. Arborists are usually the ones that perform these root fertilizations. Trees and shrubs need a balanced mixture of or nutrients and minerals for them to grow correctly. The fall is the best time of the year to perform this procedure. During this time, the tree begins to shift its energy to its root system, where growth and food storage takes place. Which then causes your tree to grow more significantly during the spring and summer months.
Conventional fertilizers may work for most plants and flora, but when it comes to the trees scattered about your lawn, deep root fertilization is the best way to go! Not only are the nutrients injected directly into the soil, but the minerals involved in the injection are tailored explicitly to the needs of growing trees. During the fall and winter months, the energy of a tree is directed towards the root system of the tree so they can become stronger and taller once spring comes. By injecting fertilizer directly to the roots, this gives the best opportunity for a tree to grow to its full potential.
Essential Plant Nutrients
Often called deep root feeding, deep root fertilization is the best way to grow healthy trees quickly. Many advantages come with this method of fertilizing. If you didn't already realize when you fertilize your yard normally. You are not only feeding your plant, but you are also feeding the weeds surrounding your plants. However, when it comes to deep root fertilizers, you are bypassing these weeds and feeding essential plant nutrients directly to your tree's root system.
Overtime through no fault of your own the roots of your trees may become damaged over time. Insects, disease, or inclement weather can damage the roots, and once the roots are become damaged, it is only a matter of time before the damage begins to affect the tree. With Deep Root Fertilization nutrients are injected directly towards the roots of the trees. This ensures that no nutrients are lost that would otherwise be lost in the soil during absorption. If you were looking to strengthen & repair the roots of your trees, consider having deep root fertilization done to the trees surrounding your lawn.
Did you know that during the fall and winter months trees switch their energy towards growing their roots deeper and stronger? Rather than putting their energy towards developing their branches. During these six months, a process known as root elongation is taking place. This means that the tree roots are growing broader and deeper into the soil. Deep root fertilization during this time provides and nutrients and energy the promote cell division and group for the plant. For your tree to reach its max potential root, elongation needs to take place for them to grow.
