Your Tree Fertilization Guide
You will find everything you need to know about fertilizing trees, how to choose the best fertilizer, and when it is best to do so.
Why Should I Fertilize Trees?
Fertilizer is essential for trees to stay healthy. Although trees are strong, nutrient deficiencies can still be overcome. Fertilization provides nutrients to trees, encourages tree growth, and contributes towards the tree’s overall health and vitality.
Fertilizing your trees helps replenish essential nutrients that may have been lost due to environmental factors such as drought or disease-causing organisms like fungi or bacteria. Fertilizer also provides an added boost of energy for growth so that new leaves will emerge more quickly than if you didn’t fertilize at all. Additionally, fertilizer encourages root development which helps stabilize the tree’s structure making it less susceptible to wind damage during storms or high winds conditions common during certain times of year.
Increase Tree Lifespan
Another advantage is that when applied correctly fertilizer can actually increase the lifespan of a tree by helping it resist diseases caused by nutrient deficiencies as well as providing protection from harmful insects such as pest infestations. Lastly, regular use of fertilizer increases photosynthesis rates meaning faster overall growth rates leading to increased canopy coverage quicker than normal!
Is It Necessary To Fertilize My Tree?
Soils are rich in nutrients, especially in forests. This is not the case in our yards.
We are reducing the potential for soil nutrients to be recycled by removing fallen bark, leaves, and twigs. The grass surrounding our trees is often unnatural and outcompetes them for nutrients and water. We often have to fertilize our trees with slow-release fertilizer to imitate nature and replace lost nutrients. You should look for signs that your tree lacks nutrients in the soil.
These signs can indicate that fertilization is part of a holistic approach to improving your plant’s health.
- Annual twig growth is shorter than usual
- A canopy that is thinner because of undersized leaves, which are less common.
- Dead branches and branch tips
- Leaf veins are darker than leaf margins
- Most species have leaves that are not dark green.
Have your tree examined by an arborist. He will test the soil and give you an official diagnosis. You can test the leaves for nutrient deficiencies.
What Is The Best Time To Fertilize Trees?
Arborwise Tree Service will fertilize trees with a slow-release fertilizer. This means you don’t need to worry about when is the best time to fertilize trees. Avoid fertilizing soil that is extremely dry, frozen or saturated with rainwater.
However, fertilizing in certain months can still be beneficial.
Fertilizing In Fall…
- It helps to recover nutrients from the soil that was lost in summertime.
Fertilizing In Spring…
- This supports a new round of growth during the quintessential season.
- You can green up the tree leaves to keep them vibrant throughout summer and into autumn.
- Essential nutrients are essential for keeping the tree healthy and fighting infection.
