Deep Root Fertilization Tarpon Springs FL
From food and materials to symbols of strength, protection, and stability – trees are a powerful gift from nature that bring beauty and shade to our landscapes. However, like all living things they need the proper nutrients to stay healthy with vivid foliage; which is why we must take care of them.
Deep root fertilization does exactly that. Utilizing specialized techniques and premium products, this service provides trees with the necessary nutrition to remain strong and vibrant for years to come. Whether you want to give your trees a boost or make sure they maintain their strength, deep root fertilization can be an invaluable part of your tree care program.
What is Deep Root Fertilization
Deep root fertilization is a type of tree care that helps promote robust and healthy trees and shrubs. It involves applying fertilizer to the roots of plants, either through injection into the soil or directly onto their roots. This service provides essential nutrients and aerates the soil, making it easier for trees to absorb them.
Deep root fertilization can help make trees and shrubs more resistant to diseases and insect infestations. It also helps promote healthy root growth, enabling trees to access the essential minerals they need for growth and vitality. With deep root fertilization, you can ensure that your trees and shrubs will stay strong and vibrant.
Difference Between Deep Root Fertilization and Surface Fertilization
Surface fertilization is the traditional way of applying fertilizer to trees. It involves spreading a slow-release granular fertilizer around the base of the tree or shrub, usually in late winter or early fall. While this method can help provide essential nutrients for your small plants and grass, it does not guarantee that the fertilizer will reach its roots.
In contrast, deep root fertilization is a specifically designed technique for increasing the nutrient uptake of trees. It involves injecting liquid or granular fertilizer into the soil and directly onto the roots. This process ensures that nutrients are delivered where it matters most – at their source – so your trees can get all the nutrients they need.
Moreover, while it is possible to carry out a conventional fertilizing job without professional help, deep root fertilization requires an Arborist due to its intricate equipment and specialized techniques.
How is Deep Root Fertilization Done?
At Ken’s Tree Service, our experienced Arborists use specialized equipment to safely and effectively deliver the fertilizer directly onto the roots of your trees. First, they will assess the condition of the soil and determine what type and amount of fertilizer are needed for optimal results.
Nutrient content, environmental conditions, and tree species are all taken into consideration when formulating a fertilizer mix. Our team will also take into account any insect or disease issues that may be present to provide the best possible solution for your trees.
The arborist then injects liquid fertilizer into holes that have been drilled into the soil. Depending on your needs, granular fertilizer can also be applied directly to the tree’s root system. The entire process is designed to maximize nutrient absorption and help keep your trees looking their best.
