Fall has officially arrived. The leaves are starting to turn those beautiful colors and we are waking up to cooler temperatures. Summer can be a stressful time for your trees and shrubs due to lack of rain, insects or diseases. Now is the time to prepare your trees and shrubs for the winter.
When we remove leaves, woody debris and other organic matter from our yards, we disrupt the natural nutrient cycling our trees and shrubs rely on for energy production and growth. Without the nutrient cycle, soil is depleted of several key ingredients for healthy growth. Fertilizing will replace the necessary nutrients that are missing from the soil. The fertilizer that is not absorbed by the tree in the fall will be there in the spring when the tree starts to grow again.
ArborTech can help you with your fertilization needs. Our slow release fertilizer is designed to provide essential macro nutrients to trees and shrubs. We have the tools and equipment to fertilize via sub-surface application (a process which utilizes a probe that goes 6-8 “ below the soil and uses water as a carrier of the needed nutrients, bio-stumulants and soil conditioners).
