How Every Tree Benefits from a Deep Root Feeding !!!

This past year has been a wild weather roller coaster! We had some icy snow storms and spring weather that didn’t break until much too late. Then, about halfway through the summer, the heavy rains started; and it shows no sign of slowing down as we head into fall.  All of this wild weather has put your trees under a lot of stress!

The experts at Alternative Earthcare explain how you can help your trees heal, grow strong and thrive by feeding them with a deep root fertilizing treatment!


What is a Deep Root Feeding?


Alternative Earthcare’s  specially formulated fertilization is injected directly into the ground around the base of your tree and filters down through the soil to reach the tree’s roots.

This Deep Root Feeding will:

-Replenish your tree’s vitamins and nutrients
-Strengthen the root system
-Stimulate healthy and vibrant new growth


Why Fall is a Great Time to Fertilize Your Tree


Alternative Earthcare’s Deep Root Feeding is a time release fertilizer, so it will provide steady doses of nutrients through the winter and into the growing season. While your tree is dormant during the long, cold winter months, it will feed on the abundance of vitamins from the fertilizer rather than tapping into its own nutrient reserve.


Why Should You get a Deep Root Feeding for Your Tree?


Every tree benefits from a Deep Root Feeding!

You’ve invested money, natural resources, and time into your shrubs and trees, and there’s a good reason for that. Your shrubs and trees provide your property with natural beauty and comfort that other decorative features can’t offer. It’s essential that you are doing everything possible to protect these beautiful investments. Otherwise, their health and beauty can decline.

That is why it’s important to feed your shrubs and trees. It’s recommended that this is done once each season so that malnourishment is prevented. Shrubs and trees often decline because they are not getting enough nutrients, which is often recieved from the soil. When you nourish the soil, your shrubs and trees will have the access to those nutrients to help them look lively and green. Flowering shrubs and trees will look even more beautiful and they may even flower longer if you’re feeding your them well.

Now that you know the importance of feeding them, you probably know how often they have to be fed and what the benefits are of feeding them. The answers to these questions and more will be covered here.

Main Benefits You’ll Find From Deep Root Feeding:

  • Shrubs and trees live longer

  • You will save money because you won’t have to remove limbs that are dead

  • Improved flowering

  • Roots grow faster

  • Shrubs and trees resist plant diseases better

  • Shrubs and trees are not as vulnerable to pests

  • You can nourish your trees that have been planted in spots that aren’t the best location or soil.

  • The shrubs and trees can resist bad weather a lot better.

These are some of the benefits that you will find when your trees are well-nourished. Just like when your health is affected when your diet changes, giving your shrubs this type of feeding is going to make them a lot healthier.


The Process

Deep root feeding doesn’t mean that you have to unearth the roots or dig up the shrubs and plants. It’s a simple and fast way that you can care for your trees. A liquid formula which is made for addressing concerns with your soil is deeply injected into your soil surrounding large plants. When you use a surface fertilizer, it only feeds your shallow-rooted plants like grass. The liquid fertilizer will direct the nutrients right into large plants’ mature roots. A surface fertilizer will take a long time to nourish the soil deeply, but this type of fertilizer will nourish plants immediately. It’s recommended that you do it once each season. However, fall’s going to be the best time for you to hire a tree expert so that they can do the fertilization.

As you can see, doing deep root feeding or fertilization is a great choice. It will help your shrubs and trees look great and grow healthy, strong, and beautiful. When you do this for your shrubs and trees, you are going to discover that they look better than ever.

There are also special cases where Deep Root Feedings are not just encouraged, but vital to a tree’s vitality. Here are a few added reasons why your tree may need a fertilizer treatment:

-A year of heavy rain can wash vital nutrients from the soil and make trees with weak root systems more likely to uproot
-Your tree’s leaves are turning color too early in the fall
-Your tree has a limited root system because of barriers such as sidewalks, driveways and houses
-Your tree has been cabled, bolted or staked
-Your tree has suffered some sort of stress, such as storm damage, insect infestation, or disease
-Your tree is a valuable part of your landscape, and you want to ensure it continues to grow vibrant, healthy and strong !!!
