Trees need a certain amount of nutrients to survive. In the wild, the debris from falling leaves and other natural substances decomposes around a tree and become part of a rich soil that feeds the tree. Raking and grass or rock ground-cover keeps this process from happening for most trees around homes or landscaped businesses. The soil becomes deficient of vital nutrients. Our tree care includes fertilization that gets deep into the soil around even the most deeply rooted trees, delivering essential food the tree needs to stay alive.

Customized Tree Fertilizer
Different types of trees and shrubs need different things. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to fertilizers. Our arborist takes an assessment of the health and condition of your individual trees. He customizes a fertilization plan to help each tree. The plan may include applying fertilizer tea to the soil’s surface and/or fertilizing deeper into the soil at the root level.
When fertilizing deeper roots, a root needle is used to inject liquid fertilizer into the soil. This needs to be done carefully by a professional in order to avoid tapping directly into the roots and damaging them. The specialized cocktail of fertilizer we use is hand-crafted and not available anywhere on the market.
