Deep Root Fertilization
Jones Tree understands that trees on your property add value to your property. Protecting your investment is important. Trees are living things and require maintenance just as most living things do. Tree fertilizations performed by Jones will enhance vitality with the objective to promote health in your trees.
Each tree species presents specific ailments and attracts a specific type of invasive species. For instance American Elms may suffer from Dutch Elm Disease, while an Ash Tree is receptive to a certain type of beetle which has been dubbed Emerald Ash Borer.
Our tree fertilization programs are tailored custom to your trees species and needs. We prescribe fertilization to correct specific nutritional deficiencies or to protect your trees against invasive species.
As an experienced tree service we will inspect your trees and determine what type of action should be taken to promote your trees health. We do not prescribe unnecessary fertilization, as unnecessary fertilization can actually encourage certain insect infestations and leach unused elements into the ground water.

What is Deep Root Fertilization?
Deep root fertilization involves applying premium-quality, custom-blended nutrients to a tree’s root system. Pressure is used to apply the fertilizers, which not only ensures that the nutrients reach the roots, but also aerates the soil to increase oxygen levels to the root system. The solutions that are applied promote microbial activity that is vital to the health of trees and aeration ensures that the roots are getting the vital oxygen that they need to thrive.
Fertilizers are injected just below the surface of the tree and can reach a depth of up to fourteen inches. The injection sites are spaced approximately two to three feet apart in a grid-like pattern. Typically, the soil just under the canopy of the tree is treated, though in some cases, the areas beyond the canopy may also be treated.
Each species of trees has different needs, presents certain ailments, and attracts particular types of invasive pests. For example, American Elms may be afflicted by Dutch Elm Disease, while Ash Trees are prone to infestations of the notorious Emerald Ash Borer beetle. At Jones Tree and Plant Care, we take the specific needs of each species of tree into consideration and custom tailor our deep root fertilization programs to meet those specific needs. We prescribe and apply top-quality, safe, and effective fertilizers that will correct any nutritional deficiencies that your trees may be prone to and that will protect your trees against invasive species.
As an experienced tree service, our certified arborists we will inspect your trees and determine what type of action should be taken to promote optimal health. We do not prescribe unnecessary fertilization, as unnecessary fertilization can encourage certain insect infestations and leach unused elements into the groundwater, which can be detrimental to the health of your trees and to the environment.
When to Fertilize Your Trees
The application of fertilization depends on a variety of factors, including the specific species and the age of your trees, as well as the type of fertilizer that will be used. For the majority of healthy trees, deep root fertilization should occur one or two times a year; however, for trees that are experiencing serious health problems, such as extensive root damage, severe soil compaction above the root system, advanced disease, or large-scale pest infestations, more frequent fertilization may be necessary to save the tree. Our head arborist will assess the condition of your trees and will recommend how frequently deep root fertilization should occur to yield the most effective results.
