Deep Root Feeding

Read More

One of the best ways to keep your trees and shrubs healthy is to provide a deep root tree and shrub feeding every spring and fall.  This is because tree and shrub feeding helps recreate the nutrient cycles that trees generally have in nature.

Twice A Year

Overall your trees and shrubs will become healthier and more resistant to disease and insect infestation. In addition, Dr. Green recommends deep root feeding a minimum of twice a year, Spring and Fall. This will give your trees and shrubs the nutrients needed to grow to their full potential.

Fall Trees and Shrubs

Ornamental trees and shrubs, much like our lawns, require regular treatments to stay healthy. A deep root feeding in the spring and the fall will help keep your trees and shrubs growing healthy, full, and vibrant throughout the growing season. Trees and shrubs fertilizing is an injection of special fertilizer that goes right down to the roots of the trees and shrubs around the base of the plant.

In addition to seasonal fertilizing, ornamental trees and shrubs require regular insect and disease treatments. Some common insects affecting trees and shrubs in Texas, Illinois, and Indiana are aphids, scale, spider mites, bagworms, and various beetles. Some common diseases are leaf spots, rust, blight, and root rot.

The best way to protect your landscape against most of these issues is to apply preventative systemic foliar insect and disease treatments in the spring and summer.
