Fall Fertilization and its Benefits During the Year
If you are like many, the warm summer season has passed all too quickly and now you are looking to catch up on the to-do list before the harsh Wisconsin winter takes over. Late fall is a good time to provide your trees with an end of the growing season fertilization. Your tree’s well-being can be enhanced if deep root fertilization is conducted before the winter storms begin rolling through.
Why Fall Fertilization for Trees?
During the fertilization process, our ISA Certified Arborists inject a balance of fertilizer mixed with nutrients and root biostimulants into the root zone of the tree. These remain available for trees when in Spring the warmer soil and air temperatures start to bring a tree out of dormancy. A tree will take advantage of having the proper fertilizer ready and available for them early in the growing season, getting them off to a good start for the year.
Why Fertilize Trees?
Two primary reasons to fertilize trees are:
- Woodlands often provide organic fertilizer to the trees and shrubs through the breakdown of expended plant parts. Residential properties typically have all the leaves removed in the fall and branches are taken away throughout the year, which limits this natural nutrient cycling and needs to be replaced.
- The grass surrounding trees and shrubs will compete with trees for nutrients, so applying fertilizations and other beneficial amendments to the tree’s roots are best applied beneath the turf roots.
When it comes to deep root tree fertilization, Certified Arborists have the correct formula and the necessary equipment to complete the job at hand. Contact us today to learn more about root fertilizer for trees and the services we can provide before winter is upon us.
