Customized Deep Root Fertilization

Tree roots need a healthy soil, the proper balance of nutrients, and air (or oxygen) in the soil to stay healthy. Our deep root fertilization is a process where a high quality, custom blended, nutrient solution is injected into the root zone of trees. These materials are injected under pressure which helps aerate the soil and provide much needed oxygen for the root system. The solution encourages microbial activity to enrich the soil and increases the nutrient levels, providing for a healthier and longer lived tree.

Our fertilization mix is a custom mixture specified by our group of plant pathologists and manufactured exclusively for our company. Our consulting arborist may recommend amendments to the standard mixture when certain nutrient deficiencies or health concerns are present.

The soil injection begins just below the surface and goes to a depth of twelve to fourteen inches. Soil injection sites are placed two to three feet apart in a grid pattern under the canopy area and beyond, in some cases.

When Should I Fertilize My Trees, and How Often?

When your trees will be fertilized depends on the recommended frequency of fertilization applications, as well as any additives included in your fertilization blend.

For most trees, fertilization programs should be repeated once or twice a year. There will be instances where severe root damage has occurred, soil compaction exists, or other health problems are present. In these cases, our consulting arborist may recommend increasing the frequency of applications and/or an additive to help offset problems.
