There is a common misconception that trees take care of themselves. Nothing could be further from the truth! Just imagine how your lawn would look without fertilization.
Trees in an urban setting are highly ‘stressed’ due to clay content and compacted soils, competition from grass and other plantings, poor drainage, restricted growing areas, road salt, and pollution.
Root stress reduces plant vigor and predisposes trees to a variety of insect and disease problems.
Proud property owners who place a high value on their landscaping realize the need for proper yearly fertilization to maintain and preserve their trees, which are the focal point of their landscaping plan.
