Trees growing in a forest or wooded environment do not require fertilization since the soil is typically nutrient rich from fallen leaves and other organic debris. In the urban environment however, there is a lack of natural nutrient recycling as lawn clean-up and tree maintenance typically removes the organic debris from the site. The decomposition of organic matter is essential in providing vital soil nutrients which are necessary for promoting tree health. Trees within the urban landscape can benefit from periodic fertilization when applied properly.

Benefits of Fertilizing Your Trees:

-Maintains tree health and vigor

-Stimulates root growth and early plant development

-Replenishes depleted nutrients

-Improves tree defenses against insects and diseases

-Improves soil structure with organic based fertilizers

-Increases tree’s drought tolerance by increasing water holding capacity of soil with organic based fertilizers

-Aerates and de-compacts soil when an injection probe is used
