Deep Root Fertilization
Between Colorado Springs’ Soil Types and Arid Climate…Our Trees are Starving!
The soil types in Colorado Springs tend to bind up important nutrients in the soil, making it difficult for trees and shrubs to get the nutrients they need to maintain their health and to mature.
Additionally, the arid dry climate in the area doesn’t encourage the formation of healthy, nutrient-rich soils.
At Integrated Lawn & Tree, we understand this. This is why we use the best tree fertilizer on the market to provide deep root fertilization for your trees.
The Double Effect of Deep Roots Fertilization
Here is what we do: we take the best tree fertilizer on the market, we dissolve it in water, we then go around the drip line of the tree, inserting fertilizer into the roots.
This has a double effect: it places important nutrients back into the soil, while also loosening the soil around the roots, opening it up for root expansion.
Spring and Fall
Integrated Lawn & Tree’s Fertilization Specialists target spring and fall as ideal times to provide deep root fertilization for your trees:
Spring – we fertilize before your canopy starts to grow
Fall – we deep root fertilize again after the canopy growth slows down.
This program encourages maximum root absorption of the fertilizers – bringing the greatest benefit to the tree.
By keeping your trees fertilized through replenishing nutrients into the soil, you prevent a host of diseases and related problems that can arise from a lack of nutrients. If your trees are already showing signs of disease, check out our Disease Treatment for Trees page to learn about Integrated Lawn & Trees’ aggressive approach to saving your trees and restoring them to full health.
What Deep Root Tree and Shrub Fertilization Means?
Deep Root Tree and Shrub Fertilization is a process of supplying trees with the essential mineral elements necessary to promote new growth, improve hardiness, as well as provide long term vigor.
Why is Deep Root Tree and Shrub Fertilization Important?
In most situations deciduous trees, evergreen trees, and ornamental shrubs are growing in poor soil and need supplemental nutrients for the trees and shrubs to thrive. Deep Root Fertilization increases growth of young trees and shrubs, increases winter hardiness, improves color and density of the canopy, as well as help build resistance to overcome disease and naturally fight off insects. This service also helps alleviate soil compaction around the trees root system, allowing more air exchange for the roots, while placing the fertilizer where the tree can gain immediate access to the product.
We highly recommend Deep Root Fertilization be performed on an annual basis. This service can be performed in either the fall or early spring. The process is done with specialized equipment allowing for a the water suspended, slow release, Nitroform® fertilizer to be hydro-injected deep below the soils surface. This service is performed using a specialized probe under high pressure to help de-compact the soils and deliver the product to the trees feeder roots.
