What is Tree Fertilization?
Many people misconstrue what the process of tree fertilization is really all about. It is not like giving it vitamins like many people believe. It actually is a process that adds a catalyst into tree roots that stimulates it to produce more proteins and glucose which are healthy foods for trees. When the Daytona Beach tree fertilization process is done the tree actually then makes its own food for itself.
How Tree Fertilization is Applied
It is common for most tree roots to be within 12 inches of the surface of the soil; this means that fertilizer broadcast on the ground can easily reach these roots in most cases. Some trees do need to be injected but that is unusual and not necessary in most parts of Florida for routine Daytona Beach tree fertilization.
Best Time to Fertilize
What is the best time to fertilize in Daytona Beach? The answer to that question would be in late fall. Although you do not see immediate results from this process it will provide the trees in your yard with a growth surge when the spring growing process kicks in. There are some exceptions for some species of trees such as Crape Myrtles that seem to favor a mid-fall fertilization. Call and ask our tree experts at Daytona Beach Tree Pros if you have a fertilization question on a specific type of tree and we can better advise you on your particular situation.
One thing that must be noted is that mature trees generally do not need to be fertilized. The only exception to this is if they appear to be diseased. The reason for this is their roots are well developed and traveled and usually reach areas where you have most likely already fertilized your lawn. Many times their root structure is also deep enough and wide enough to absorb the nutrients they need on their own. So fertilization by you on mature trees is usually not required.
As was mentioned, the exception to this is mature trees that have been affected by disease or appear malnourished. We can provide you with advice on how to nurse these unhealthy mature trees back to good health or you can request us to come to your home and do it for you.
