Your trees and shrubs are constantly competing with the grass around them for valuable nutrients. As a result, they can use our help in order to thrive. Every year during the fall season, plants stop sending water and minerals up to the leaves. Instead, they use these nutrients to store up food for the dormant season. (Kind of similar to what bears do when they hibernate in the winter). That is why it is extremely important to fertilize your trees and shrubs during the winter months. By doing so, you allow trees and shrubs in your lawn to store food as they see fit for the upcoming year. While it may look like your trees and shrubs have stopped growing this time of year, the complete opposite is happening below the surface.
Tree and shrub fertilization promotes a more active root system for a healthier, more beautiful landscape. Our root zone fertilization drenches the root of each ornamental tree and shrub with a liquid fertilizer. By applying this during the winter months it allows for proper storage of the nutrients for even distribution throughout the year, ensuring that your trees and shrubs always have the right amount of nutrients at the right time. It also produces healthier blooms and increased vitality in the spring.
