Hendricksen Tree Care
Like all living organisms, trees and shrubs will not survive if they do not get the nutrients they need. Nutrients, along with water and sunlight, are important for the growth and development of the tree and it is important to make sure your trees get all three. If your trees are malnourished, they may not grow to their full potential and they will be less effective resisting insect infestations and diseases. Fertilizing your trees is a great way to ensure that your trees get enough nutrients to remain strong and healthy.
Your trees should be fertilized at least twice per year, at the beginning and end of each growing season, and any time they appear malnourished. Our professionals at Hendricksen Tree Care can help you make sure your trees are properly fertilized with our tree fertilization services in Skokie, IL. Our arborists understand the types of fertilizer blends your trees need and we will ensure that your trees are fertilized at the proper times. We can work with you to create a fertilization schedule for your trees so you never have to worry about them becoming malnourished.
Tree Fertilization Methods
There are two main methods that our arborists use to fertilize your trees: soil injection and direct injection. Each type of tree benefits from a different blend of nutrients and may require a different type of application. Our arborists can determine which blend of nutrients and application method is best for your trees.
- Soil injection: The soil injection method involves injecting the fertilizer into the soil so it reaches the root system. We will inject the nutrients deep enough into the soil that the roots will not need to compete with surrounding plants. Our arborists will determine which micro and macro nutrient blends to use for your trees.
- Direct injection: With this method, the fertilizer is injected straight into the vascular system of the tree. This will eliminate the possibility of any competition for the nutrients with surrounding plants. We typically use this method with malnourished trees to ensure they receive the nutrients they need.
