Taking Care of Tree Roots

You may not think about your tree’s roots very often. After all, most people are appreciating the beauty of the leaves right this time of year. But it’s important to consider the needs of your tree’s roots, especially if your tree looks like it may have a disease. If your tree’s leaves turned yellow when they were supposed to be green, if your see a lot of insects crawling around on the branches, or if your tree is extruding sap when it didn’t before, your tree might need treatment. Make sure to tell your technician exactly what you’ve noticed about your tree so that we can properly diagnose and treat the symptoms.

Tree Injection

While it is common to spray for insects, we offer a tree injection service as an alternative. By injecting the tree with a treatment, we negate the potential damage that’s done by spraying chemicals in the open environment. Tree injection is much safer for the surrounding plants, animals, and children that could come in contact with sprayed chemicals.

Deep Root Fertilization

Similar to tree injection, we also inject fertilizer directly into the roots as a safer alternative to surface fertilization. By injecting into the roots, the fertilizer is exactly where it needs to be to get the job done. If your trees leaves are unnaturally yellowing or your tree seems weak, it may just need a good boost of fertilizer. After the fertilizer has been applied, it’s important to give your tree plenty of water to keeps salts from the fertilizer from building up and damaging the tree’s root system. It is recommended to apply two to three inches of water every two to three weeks.
