Fertilize Your Trees to Help Them Get Through the Winter

Want to give your trees a great start to the spring?

Fertilization is a good choice when prepping your tree for a potentially harsh winter. When trying to keep your trees healthy, fertilization is another good choice.  The application of moderate rates of slow-release nitrogen fertilizer materials to the soil over the root zone of young to mature trees is beneficial to their growth and survival.   Excessive rates should be avoided and trees past maturity or in senescence should not be fertilized.

Fertilization can be difficult to master, so consult with a tree service or arborist for advice.  There are different mixes for different trees, when to apply, how to apply and what type to apply can be a difficult concept to master.  But getting it right is crucial to a successful fertilization plan. I highly recommend seeking the assistance of a professional tree service, like Trees "R" Us, Inc. when it comes to fertilization.  Most high quality tree care companies have several certified arborists who will take all the guess work our of fertilizing. 

Trees "R" Us, Inc. has 4 certified arborists on staff who can answer all your questions about plant and tree fertilization.  In addition, a tree service's plant health care division, if they have one, is exactly what you need.  The plant health care division provides arborist services, fertilizations, and general health care for all your plants and trees.  Trees "R" Us, Inc. offers plant health care and much more.
