Deep Root Fertilization Lake Elsinore
Deep Root Fertilization for Trees?
Fertilized trees will live longer and are much more capable to withstand disease or an insect invasion. The deep rooted fertilization is the preferred method of tree care. However, the most common method of fertilization, where fertilizer is applied to the top layer of the soil, often is not enough for trees. The reason being, vegetation growing nearby, whose roots are usually above that of your trees, can absorb the nutrients and prevent it from reaching the roots of your trees. This is where the technique of deep root fertilization is a useful tool. It is a way to circumnavigate the top layer of soil, and other forms of vegetation, ensuring that the nutrients are readily available for your trees. Call Lake Elsinore Tree Service today!
What is Deep Root Fertilization for Trees?
Tree root fertilization is a controlled deep fertilization process that feeds the necessary nutrients directly to the root system. Traditional fertilization methods distribute feed onto the tree’s surface only. The deep root fertilization process has a better process of distributing the nutrients under the soil’s surface near the roots. Commercial landscapers use high-powered equipment for this process. When it comes to trees, regular fertilization is not enough to guarantee that the nutrients being administered, will reach the roots system of your tree. The preferred deep-rooted method of fertilization of trees involves penetrating the soil around three to four inches deep. Depending on the tree, there are some instances where up to 8 inches deep is needed to reach and feed fertilizer down to the root level. Smaller feeder roots lie closer to the surface of the ground. This way, the nutrients can more effectively make their way into the tree root system. This is done by injecting the fertilizer below the top layer of soil for trees. Surrounding vegetation with roots closer to the surface can otherwise prevent the fertilizer from being absorbed by your trees. It is a simple and effective way to give your trees a real boost and has a range of real benefits.
