Deep root fertilization is the process of delivering nutrients directly to a tree's root system to help to strengthen it and make the tree healthier. We use a three-step process to get the fertilizer under the soil and to the roots of the tree.
The Three-Step Process For Feeding Trees
Step One: Digging The Holes
To deep feed the roots of a tree, we encircle it with narrow holes dug two feet to three feet apart. The holes are dug several feet away from the tree's base. The holes are placed along the drip line of the tree. The soil removed from each hole is quickly replaced in the holes once the process of deep feeding the tree's roots is completed. If you want to deep feed the trees on your property, call us today.
Step Two: Adding A Slow-Release Fertilizer
A slow-release, liquid fertilizer is used during the deep fertilization process. We use a food that's well-balanced and includes the root system strengthener, mycorrhiza. This enhances the soil's biology and chemistry and reduces the susceptibility of the tree to soil pollutants. We use a slow-release liquid so that the roots will gradually absorb a consistent amount of the nutrient-rich fertilizer over a long period of time. The fertilizer begins working right away to enrich the soil, nourish the roots and improve the health, strength and vitality of the trunk, limbs and leaves as well.
Step Three: Administering The Liquid Fertilizer
Once the holes have been dug and the fertilizer prepared, the third step in the process is to slowly pour it into the holes. This is done so that it can permeate deep into the soil and enable its nutrients to make the entire area richer. Approximately one 1/2 gallon of the mixture is fed into each prepared hole. Once the filling process is complete and each hole has received it's allotted amount of root food, we then refill each of the holes with the soil which we removed from it.
