Why is deep root fertilization so important?

Deep feeding your trees is the best way to keep them resilient and vibrant outside of their natural habitat. This is because it helps to recreate the natural nutrient cycles that your trees would normally have in nature. 

Deep root fertilizing in the spring will support a new flush of growth during an essential season. When nutrients are delivered directly to the roots, the tree receives an immediate boost. Over time, the nutrients are transported to the rest of the plant. The tree grows healthier as this process unfolds, producing more florals and greener canopies. Encouraging your trees to bear vibrant foliage preserves their richness through summer and into fall.

And the benefits are not only exterior – a robust tree is better able to fight off environmental aggressors such as pest infestation and harsh weather. Regular fertilization gives your soil the optimal balance of nutrients, so trees can grow healthy enough to naturally resist harsh environmental conditions. This is the best way to ensure that your trees remain long-lived investments that provide your yard with shade and beauty.

How is it different from traditional fertilization?

Traditional fertilization methods distribute nutrients around the tree. When fertilizer is applied to the surface of a lawn, grass roots and other ground covers have primary access to absorbing all the nutrients. This prevents the treatment from infiltrating to the deeper soil layers, where the roots of the trees and shrubs reside. 

Deep root fertilization goes beneath the surface and directly to the roots. Because of the liquid state of the fertilizer, the tree can absorb nutrients much more quickly than traditional methods. And because it is deposited below the soil it cannot be easily washed away by rain, like pellets. 

To provide the best conditions for the trees and shrubs in your landscaping, deep root fertilization should be an essential part of your maintenance routine. This will help ensure that your plants have the ideal soil conditions to grow full and beautiful.
