DEEP ROOT FERTILIZATION
If your trees seem to be in decline, particularly if they are located in an area where they are confined in their growing, they may need a deep root fertilization treatment. Trees and shrubs that are confined to particular locations where water and nutrient-rich soil are not always available may need to get the nourishment they need another way. In the Baton Rouge area, many of these types of trees are near concrete flatwork like driveways and walkways. If you have trees that do not seem to be getting the nutrients they need, contact the arborists at Baton Rouge Tree Service for help.
WHAT IS DEEP ROOT FERTILIZATION?
Deep root fertilization consists of injecting fertilizer directly into a tree’s root system. The process involves sticking a pipe deep into the ground and blasting the roots of the tree directly with an organic solution containing trace minerals, macronutrients, and micronutrients. This will help the tree to absorb the nutrients quickly and will also aerate the root system, making trees healthier and less susceptible to disease.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD MY TREES BE FERTILIZED?
Deep root fertilization treatments can be done twice a year to provide the supplementary nutrients trees need to grow strong and healthy. However, many trees do not need to be fertilized on a regular basis. Trees will show you if they are stressed and need some supplemental help. If the tops of your trees have sparse foliage or bare branches or the tree is leaning or has leaf scorch, your tree may be stressed and in need of nutrients. This may be because of the soil around the tree or the location in which the tree has been planted. If your trees are growing in compacted soil or are in an area where they are not getting the nutrients they need, you should call a trusted company like Baton Rouge Tree Service to schedule an inspection of the tree and to schedule fertilization.
