What is Deep Root Fertilization?
A 1 time a year deep root fertilization treatment to your trees and shrubs. We inject an average of 1 to 5 fertilizer tubes (depending on the size) per tree or shrub in your yard. This is a slow-release liquid fertilizer that penetrates 4 to 6 inches into the root system. Most fibrous absorbing tree roots are found in the top 2 to 8 inches of soil where water and oxygen are abundant.
Is Deep Root Fertilization Necessary?
Deep root fertilization is a necessary treatment, especially if you want to maintain healthy trees and shrubs. Standard fertilizers can't penetrate compacted soil to reach the root zone and therefore some nutrients may be lost to competing grassroots. Trees and shrubs that are not able to get enough nutrients from their surrounding areas will benefit greatly from getting deep root fertilization once a year.
