One of the most misunderstood facets of tree care is that of tree fertilization. When people think of tree fertilization they often think of a tree doctor injecting a special formula into a tree to make it healthy but that is hardly the case. Although some tree fertilization does involve injections, a vast majority of it is very similar to fertilizing your yard and is simply done by broadcasting fertilizer on the ground the same way. At New Smyrna Tree Service we know the best and latest methods to fertilize your trees to keep them healthy and looking good all year round.
What is Tree Fertilization?
When you fertilize a tree you are not giving it vitamins but instead are supplying it with a catalyst that helps it produce essential glucose and proteins which actually help a tree make its own food supply. This is important because it makes the trees in your yard more self-sustaining and better prepared to handle the dryer periods of the year. It is an essential part of any New Smyrna tree care.
How is Tree Fertilization Applied?
Fortunately, most trees have roots that are found within a foot of the surface soil. This makes them very easy to reach with fertilizer and that is the reason why tree injecting is only done in the most extreme circumstances. The main technique of tree fertilization in New Smyrna Beach is broadcasting fertilizer as we mentioned. More mature tree roots can even soak up the fertilizer that you lay down on your lawn and don’t need any special attention. The experts at New Smyrna Tree Service will be able to take a look at your yard and easily determine how to best fertilize the trees in your landscape.
What is the Best Time to Fertilize?
There is never really a bad time to fertilize as your trees will always get some benefit from it but the ideal time is definitely in the late fall. You will not see immediate results from an application that is done at this time but trust us that it gives your trees a shot in the arm to help them prepare for the spring growing season. Some varieties of trees do prefer to be fertilized at other times of year though, and our trained arborists will know exactly what those periods are for each and every type of tree in your yard.
As was mentioned most mature trees do not even need individual fertilization but there are exceptions to this rule, such as when they are in a severe state of poor health or diseased. That is the time when an injection may just be an important part of the fertilization process. Our tree care specialists will be able to look at the root structure and tree health of the mature trees in your landscape and decide the best way to fertilize them to make them as healthy as possible.
