Deep root fertilization is a maintenance treatment appropriate for any tree. While it’s important to fertilize weak or sick trees, the fertilization of healthy trees will prevent them from getting sick in the first place. A healthy tree can fight off disease and insect infestations and have a better chance of surviving very wet and dry periods. These treatments can invigorate your healthy trees and promote their continued growth and beauty. The best time for deep root fertilization treatments is in the fall, so if you want to ensure the health of your trees and landscapes, schedule your tree fertilization with Scientific Plant Service today.
Slow-Release Fertilizer From Scientific Plant Service
At Scientific Plant Service, we use our own custom blend for deep root fertilization. The main fertilizer is blended to our specifications, and then we add additional nutrients, trace minerals, stabilizers, and root enhancement products.
Our slow-release blend contains:
- 12-24-24 fertilizer with slow-release nitrogen from Nutralene and humates
- Chelated iron with manganese and nitrogen
- Micronutrients essential for healthy trees
We then add organic soil amendments derived from three sea-based sources: fish meal, kelp meal, and seawater extracts. Natural Mycorrhizae are added to enhance root growth development and function. Finally, the nutrients are stabilized with organic sources that let them stay in the soil longer and increase effective root uptake.
This organic matter feeds the soil microorganisms, providing them with energy to multiply freely. When the microbes multiply, they release nutrients tied up in the soil. Every element of our slow-blend fertilizer treatment is designed to promote healthy roots.
Treatments are applied with our custom-designed injection probes. The probes are equipped with digital meters that guarantee that the proper amount of solution is used for each specific tree. You don’t have to worry about applying too much or too little fertilizer to your healthy tree.
When to Apply Deep Root Fertilization Treatments
While companies that use lesser products recommend a deep root fertilization treatment every year or even twice a year, our unique blend guarantees health for longer. When using Scientific Plant Service’s unique fertilization blend, you can apply the treatment every other year for best results.
