Look Forward to Seeing Your Landscape Turn Lush and Green This Spring
Give your trees the boost they deserve with well-timed and properly, professionally executed fertilization. Reap the benefits for the spring, summer, and fall months. Tree fertilizer is not only useful when your landscape is nutrient deficient; rather, it should be an essential part of your regular tree maintenance.
We don’t take caring for your property lightly. Our arborists have a systematic approach to tree fertilization that leverages the latest tree science (arboriculture) with over 20 years of industry expertise.
Tree Fertilization with Fielding Tree & Shrub Care Combines Industry Expertise with First-Rate Service
Our tree fertilizer adds beneficial fungi, bacteria, and organic components to rebuild soil health. This may surprise you, but your pine trees need just as much nutritional support as any other tree in Colorado. They deserve enough nutrients to maintain proper health and build resistance to pine beetles! Also, your fruit trees need all the energy they can get to grow their bounty. Even shrubs can benefit from fertilizer application.
Our tree fertilizer is appropriate for pine trees, fruit trees, shrubs, and most any tree that needs the added support for healthy growth. Sure, there are cases where we need to adjust a bit; for example, we may need to add extra iron to our tree fertilizer for chlorotic trees. We’ve got fertilizing down to a science.
When to Apply Tree Fertilizer
For the best Colorado tree care, apply tree fertilizer when trees need it and when they can absorb the nutrients with their roots. The primetime for fertilization is early spring when the weather is reasonable, the trees have active root growth, and a decent amount of soil moisture. Conditions are highly conducive to plant growth and that’s why it’s so important to fertilize when the conditions are right in the spring. That said, fall fertilization is also important, especially for pine and fruit trees.
Lastly, fertilization is also not recommended in the frigid cold of winter because plants are often unable to absorb the nutrients due to the stressful weather conditions.
Committed To Never Using Tree Spike Fertilizers To Help Feed Your Trees
We care deeply about providing the best possible care for our customers’ trees and shrubs. Part of that commitment is knowing which practices give the most effective care. One of the most popular fertilization techniques is tree spikes. Our experience and education continue proving that tree spike fertilizers are some of the least effective and even dangerous fertilization methods.
Our team of certified arborists at Fielding Tree Care do not use tree spike fertilizers for three solid reasons:
Tree spikes are too shallow
They don’t get past grassroots, rocks, and other debris near the surface. Your tree’s roots are often much deeper than the depth of a simple tree spike.
Too small of a treatment area
Tree spikes only fertilize a singular spot and rarely treat more than the immediate area.
Not environmentally friendly
A vast majority of tree spikes are still made out of plastic (not cool!)
