Feed Your Trees!
March 3, 2014
We can hop in the car and go to the grocery store when we need to stock up on food. Our trees, however, can only make food from what their limited root systems can reach.
With all the construction, concrete, soil compaction and other things we do to make it hard on trees, it can be difficult for them to absorb the water and nutrients they need to survive. While it may seem counter-intuitive, if you have a well-kept yard, neatly mowed and manicured, you probably have hungry trees.
Each tree’s needs must be individually assessed. You may have trees in decline or heavy stress and not even realize it. Their condition will determine how we feed them. Trees under stress may require fertilization that is delivered straight into their trunks, as with an IV drip. Other trees can be fed using our root zone feeding with high pressure injections of fertilizer. We use our own locally made organically-based, slow-release fertilizer which we inject below the soil surface. Well-fed trees are strong and sturdy trees.
