How to Fertilize a Tree
The main reason to fertilize trees and shrubs is to bolster their health so they are better prepared to fight off pests, disease, and environmental stresses. While fertilizer can’t solve all of a tree’s problems, it will go a long way to give it a fighting chance.
Does My Tree Need Fertilizer?
Trees growing in their natural habitat should have access to all of the minerals they need to survive and grow. Anything you can do to mimic that habitat can reduce the need for fertilizer. This may include letting leaves remain on the ground in the fall instead of raking them up. Chances are, though, that despite your best efforts, the need for fertilizer will not be entirely eliminated.
If you have questions about various types of fertilizers to use, please contact us. We would enjoy the chance to talk shop and discuss any trees you have on your property. Let our trained arborists give you all the guidance we can to ensure your trees grow to be healthy and tall.
