What Is Deep Root Fertilization?
In nature, the leaves on the forest floor act as a fertilizer that feeds the trees the nutrients they need. But when trees are part of our yards, we remove the leaves each fall and the natural fertilizer it would receive. This is why deep-root fertilization is highly recommended to ensure the health of your trees.
When traditional fertilizers don’t cut it, there is deep root feeding. This method uses a device to inject fertilizer, under high pressure, into the root systems of your trees and shrubs. This eliminates problems such as leaching and competition from other plants that traditional fertilizers have. Deep root fertilization promotes lush foliage, promotes deep root growth, and makes it more resistant to diseases and pests.
The weather in Rhode Island can be unpredictable, with huge temperature swings in the spring and fall. Deep root feeding helps keep your trees ready to handle any sudden changes to weather and keep them in good health all year long.
To sum up, deep root feeding or deep root fertilization is an effective process that boosts the health and vitality of the tree by replacing lost nutrients. Deep root feeding should only be done by a trained arborist or lawn care service.
