TREE & SHRUB FERTILIZATION

Mature trees, young trees, and shrubs can benefit from deep-root fertilization. Complete plant health care services includes fertilizing trees and shrubs. Including tree fertilization in your plant care program will help you to grow hardy plants that will be healthy and have the increased ability to resist insect and disease pests. The benefit of fertilizing trees and shrubs is to make sure adequate nutrients are available for the tree roots to absorb. However, the roots of trees and shrubs must be healthy and viable in order to absorb nutrients from the soil.

Some conditions that hurt or damage tree roots, thus causing tree stress includes:

• Soil compaction from construction activities; parking vehicles or equipment over the root zone; recreation activities occurring over the root zone, etc.
• Tree roots that are infected with root decay fungi.
• Tree roots that are cut during construction activities or tree transplanting.
• Incorrect soil pH that prevents certain nutrients from being absorbed by the tree roots.
University research and tree experts agree that maintaining soil fertility will help trees and shrubs remain healthy. Maintaining soil fertility with tree fertilization will help to increase overall plant health and this is usually evident on the plant when the tree leaves are the normal size and color for the plant being fertilized. Deep-root fertilization is a natural way to increase the health of a tree and increase the ability of the plant to defend against insect or disease pests.
The ISA Certified Arborists at Owen Tree Service are experienced at recognizing when tree fertilization will benefit one or more of your landscape plants. Tree leaf size or color is an obvious indicator of plant stress, but often there are more subtle signs of plant stress that indicates the need for tree fertilization. In Michigan, and Oakland County in particular, the soil pH is sometimes too high to grow healthy Red Maple trees and Pin Oak trees. If you are considering planting either of these two tree species we can perform a soil analysis to find out the soil pH before tree planting is done.
In the urban landscape fertilization will benefit shade trees, ornamental trees, flowering shrubs and fruit trees. Native plants and ground cover plants can also benefit from a tree fertilization program. This includes deciduous plants as well as evergreen trees.
Tree fertilization before or after tree pruning will usually benefit your trees. Having tree fertilization done to your trees before or after tree pruning will help the tree pruning cuts heal faster.
Some tree owners believe that having their lawn fertilized will feed their trees, too. If the correct amount of lawn fertilizer is being applied, then having lawn fertilization will probably not feed your trees. The lawn fertilizer will be used by the grass plants and will not reach the tree roots.
Owen Tree Service can provide tree fertilization for a single plant in your landscape, or all your trees and shrubs. We also offer mycorrhizae treatments and root stimulant treatments to build the health of stressed trees or recently transplanted trees. If indicated by a soil analysis, soil pH can be adjusted to help trees such as Red Maple trees or Pin Oak trees develop the truly green leaves they should have.
