Deep Root Tree & Shrub Fertilizing

Trees and shrubs don't usually get proper nutrition in a manicured type environment. Grass roots will absorb most all nutrients before deeper tree feeder roots get a chance.

Trees and plants in nature get nutrients from decomposing plant matter like leaves, wood, etc. that break down to rejuvenate the soil. In a well maintained property these materials are constantly cleaned away which over time allows the soil to lose its ability to properly support trees and shrubs.

When a tree or shrub does not receive the proper nutrition it needs, it can become stressed and much less resistant to pests, diseases, decay, etc. They may also yellow, lose foliage and look unhealthy.

Deep root fertilizing is the most effective and preferred method for keeping your customers trees and shrubs healthy. Please contact us to learn more about adding a tree and shrub fertilizing program to your plant health care program.
