All plants require nutrients in order to grow strong and healthy. Upstate NY features a very unique and diverse landscape and whether you live in an urban area like Albany, Troy or Schenectady or a suburban area such as Saratoga, Clifton Park or Malta, nutrient deficiencies can pose a very real threat to the health of your trees. As such, tree and deep root fertilization are a vital part of maintaining the beauty of your landscape and can help ensure your trees enjoy a long, healthy life and pleasing appearance for years to come.
What is deep root fertilization?
Deep root fertilization is a process that helps provide essential nutrients to the root zones of trees and shrubs. When living in an urban or suburban environment, trees on your property are forced to compete for nutrient supply and water with turf and other vegetation. Combine this with other stresses from factors such as compacted soils, root space infringement and weather patterns such as drought, and your trees and landscape can suffer serious health problems.
Deep root fertilization is needed seasonally during the fall, when plant roots absorb nutrients that will be used during the initial growth period in the spring as well as in the spring, when plant roots absorb nutrients that it will use throughout the growing season.
