The trees on your property need to be taken care of to help them flourish. One of the most important ways to care for them is through fertilization treatments. Fertilizing your trees will give them sufficient nutrients to feed off of so they can stay healthy and look their best. Trees in California can be fertilized at any time throughout the year, but it's best if you get an expert's opinion to determine when it's ideal for your specific types. Depending on your trees and the soil condition, these treatments can be applied through soil injections or granules.

When should tree fertilization treatments be applied?

Your trees need nutrients to thrive, and they can benefit from fertilization treatments at any time throughout the year! Not all trees are created equal, and each will require nourishment at different times of the year, depending on their needs and growth habits. To ensure yours get the nutrients they need at the right time, it's best to consult tree experts! Professionals can provide their opinion on when to apply fertilizer for your trees. This way, you provide them with the nourishment they need when they need it.

Why should you fertilize your trees?

Fertilizers contain nutrients that bolster the health of your trees to ensure they are robust throughout the growing season. Strengthening your trees will also enable them to protect themselves from various diseases and insects that can pose a threat. Not only that, but it will even increase their resistance so they are better equipped to withstand the varying weather conditions in our area.

Additionally, healthy trees with enough supply of nutrients from fertilizers look good. They'll have green leaves, lush foliage, and an attractive appearance! Maintaining the vibrantly green beauty of your trees can enhance your landscape's aesthetics and boost your property's curb appeal.

Fertilizers for your trees contain three vital nutrients: nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus.

How are tree fertilizers applied?

Depending on your tree's needs and the soil conditions, fertilizer treatments can be applied as granules or through soil injections. To know which will work best for your trees, you can have professionals perform a soil analysis. Here's how the two methods of application are different:

  • Granular Fertilizers: These fertilizers typically come in pellet-shaped granules that are spread around the base of your trees. This type of fertilizer releases slowly, which means your trees will have a steady supply of nutrients over time.
  • Liquid Soil Injections: You can use liquid fertilizers and administer them through soil injections. With this method, the fertilizer is injected near the base of your trees. That way, their roots quickly absorb the nutrients, and the treatment starts working immediately!
