Though an injection process can begin anytime throughout the year, the ideal period for treatment is during the fall months. Trees require fewer nutrients in the winter because they’re mostly dormant. Injecting/fertilizing trees during fall will allow the tree to use some of the nutrients to improve and grow roots during the harsh winter weather as protection and store the rest until the spring season. Once the weather changes, the tree will use the stored nutrients to kick-start development.
Winter pests, such as the emerald ash borer larva and the winter moth, typically are active during the winter months. Severe defoliation and damage under the bark can be caused by these pests. Significant damage can lead to the death of your trees. Tree fungus injecting insecticides in fall helps your tree fight off pests during the season your tree is most susceptible to damage. Limiting infestations will enable your trees to develop healthily during the spring season.
